Sawkill Creek in Kingston, New York

A creative and contemporary small city that served as New York State’s first capital, Kingston is filled with art galleries, craft breweries, diverse ethnic food, and plenty of great music and nightlife. Funky clothing boutiques and second-hand furniture stores filled with midcentury modern delights are just part of this small city’s charms.

Uptown Kingston, with its distinctive Dutch architecture and bluestone sidewalks, has great coffee shops, a vibrant farmers market, and unique home goods and clothing shops. The waterfront district beckons visitors with boat and trolly rides, paddleboarding, and a museum dedicated to this county’s immigrant experience.

Weaving it all together is a 6-mile stretch of the Empire State Trail that winds past New York State’s newest park, Sojourner Truth State Park, a 500-acre urban oasis. Enjoy a cocktail while watching boats go by on the Hudson or take a sunset sail.

Come experience all that Kingston has to offer.
