While you're there make sure to check out some amazing farmers markets in the area. The town just north of Hyde Park (CIA location) is Rhinebeck. The market there is terrific. Also the FDR library in Hyde Park is really cool. South is Beacon, NY-lots of hip upstart foodie concepts opening and lots of art too. Just south of Beacon is Cold Spring. Great hiking, kayaking and other fun stuff to do.
