Page 8 of 35 n Hudson Valley Parent 9 Spring makes Cassidy want to explore the Hudson Valley After a long, dreary winter of being stuck indoors, Hudson Valley Parent's editor Cassidy Brighton gets very excited when the days get longer, and the weather gets warmer. Her favorite thing to do after a long week at the office is to get outside to soak up some sun. Brighton says, "When I lived in Orange County, I lived very close to the Walden-Wallkill Rail Trail and would take strolls on it often with my mom. There would always be chipmunks scurrying back and forth across the path and other families out with their dogs and kids. It was always a cheerful afternoon that made the gray winter seem far away." Brighton's favorite days include walking somewhere with a view, grabbing something unique to eat and popping into stores that have an interesting flair. "My goal is to never order the same thing twice at the restaurants I find. That way, my adventures never feel repetitive," she says. Since she moved across the river to Dutchess County this past summer, there are even more fun places to explore. "Beacon and Cold Spring have become my new favorite towns to visit on a sunny day," says Brighton. "I love the small-town vibe, the unique restaurants and quaint shops. Walking around town with an iced tea in my hand immediately gets rid of my winter blues." Looking for a great place to stop on your next adventure? Brighton lists one of her favorite places that she think is a must-see. "Royal Crepes in Beacon is one of my favorite places to visit. The fresh food is always delicious, and the bright little shop is full of interesting art and decorations," she says. "I love to get a seat by the window and enjoy my lunch while watching the happenings on Main Street." health & llness ® Warm weather always makes Cassidy smile. There is nothing better than basking in the sunshine with views of the beautiful Hudson Valley in the background!
