Now that July is here, activities around the Hudson Valley are abundant.

Starting this Saturday, July 13th, you can tour the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse.

The boat tours will happen the second Saturday of each month and depart from either the Athens or Hudson boat launches.

Departure times will start at 11am and run every half hour depending on which location you choose, with the last departure leaving at 2:30pm.

The tours will run through October and are both fun and educational for the whole family.

Reservations can be made by calling (518) 500-2524 or you can find out more info and reserve your spot HERE

Ticket prices vary in price but start at just $5 for youth with membership ID.

The next time someone tells me there isn't anything to do in the Hudson Valley I'm going to throw a brick at them.

Enjoy life.  Enjoy summer.  Enjoy this great area we live in, the Hudson Valley.
