This time of year it is really important to keep busy. It is too easy for the winter weather blues to set in so keeping busy and getting out could be a good solution to a little bit of cabin fever.

No matter what time of year it is there is always plenty to do in the Hudson Valley and beyond. There are the usual winter activities like skiing and such but Mother Nature hasn't been too cooperative with the weather so I thought I would list a few other events that can keep you busy until our first significant snowfall.
