Facts About Orange County New York

Hudson Valley

Did you know that Orange County, one of the original New York counties, is the only county in New York that lies between two rivers --- the Delaware for canoeing and rafting and the Hudson for cruising?

Situated just about 50 miles from the tip of Manhattan, Orange County provides some of the most beautiful scenery in the Hudson Highlands.  Between the two rivers – The Delaware and Hudson – lies an interior of rolling hills of farmland giving rise to numerous farm stands.

Orange County is charmingly sophisticated and the experiences range from international destinations to roadside farm stands, and everything in between (Orange County Tourist Board). This area is up and coming--- Home to the impending Lego Land and Great Wolf Lodge.

In the Hudson Valley region of New York, visitors are usually amazed at the attractions and what the region has to offer… from upscale shopping at the Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets to farm to table restaurants and should be a must visit to many New Yorkers as it sits in their own back yard.

Alora Adventures, an Orange County-based travel agency which offers various tours to the Hudson Valley region, knows of the many hidden gems that the neighborhood has to offer.
