Area Attractions & Activities

While there’s much to experience at The Wire and James Newbury Hotel we also encourage you to explore the history and beauty of the Hudson River Valley. The famous Hudson River School painting movement was born just 20 minutes away. Rip Van Winkle took his famous snooze in this neck of the woods. The magic and majesty of this region continue to draw visitors from all over the world.
