Derived from the Latin word “amoena,” meaning “pleasant to the eye,” Amenia boasts bucolic, scenic views and access to the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. Book an overnight stay at Troutbeck in Amenia’s hamlet of Leedsville, and you’ll understand why it was a home to romantics, naturalists, humanists and poets for centuries. Visit the Wassaic Project, in the hamlet of Wassaic, which presents contemporary art inside the renovated, seven-story Maxon Mills grain elevator. Take-in a nightly, first-run, double feature on the big screen at Four Brothers Drive-In Theater, with car hop delivery of tasty eats made with local ingredients.
