What Do You Call Tourists Who Visit the Hudson Valley?
We had a beautiful weekend here in the Hudson Valley.
I was out and about trying to enjoy my weekend, but those pesky tourists made it extremely difficult. Getting over the Mid-Hudson Bridge on a Saturday in October is basically an expedition. I was probably stuck in pointless traffic for 35 minutes.
Listen, I love the fact that the Hudson Valley is so beautiful this time of year. It's great that our local businesses thrive off of those visiting from out of town.
But, my goodness. The city folk really know how to grind my gears.
It's time to have a code name for them so the Hudson Valley can let out a little aggression.
"Citiots," while a great name, is a little overused. We need something new. So we asked our listeners and we were not disappointed.
Here are some of the gems we've received:
Wishies - Because they wish they were from the Hudson Valley.
The Vanilla's: "they are so basic they do everything and get way too excited doing it The Basics, they basically suck up all the fun out of traditions." - Danielle in Kingston
The Begons - Kasey in Kingston
The Rude-Agains - "They don’t even know they are impacting our lives." - Lisa in Elka Park
Send us your ideas or your favorite from the list and we'll crown the most popular name at the end of this week!
