Plan Your Visit

Hyde Park may be a small town, but there is so much to do during a visit to Vanderbilt Mansion, and the town Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt called home. With three national parks and the nation's first presidential library and museum, it will take more than a single day to see everything. Beyond Hyde Park, the region's Hudson Valley National Heritage Area is home to many museums, historic houses, gardens, nature preserves, and culinary adventures.
