Rhinebeck is one of Country Living Magazine’s Ten Most Charming Small Towns in America. Enjoy sidewalk shops and unique boutiques by day and al fresco seating at award-winning restaurants by night. Visit T’ Space, a cultural project complete with a 30-acre woodland reserve with permanent art installations. Attend an event at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, which hosts over a dozen shows and festivals annually, and hike to the top of Ferncliff Fire Tower for breathtaking views.
