Great Date #7: Rimbaud High
They don’t call it Poet’s Walk for nothing: a stroll this lovely makes even the most artless among us wax poetic. Get your Keats on while promenading along two miles of swoon-worthy trails — with unparalleled views of the Hudson River and Catskills — at this Scenic Hudson-owned park in Red Hook. Washington Irving did; legend has it that the view of the river from this spot inspired him to write “Rip Van Winkle.” Afterward, repair to America’s oldest operating inn, the august Beekman Arms (George Washington slept here — and so did Chelsea Clinton’s wedding guests) for a Hudson Valley Cattle Company dry-aged New York strip steak (read more about Valley steakhouses here) and a bottle of Millbrook Vineyards Hunt Country Red (read more about Valley vineyards here).
