Craving a comforting, get-away-from-it-all weekend? Tucked along the banks of the Hudson River, this serene village, surrounded by rolling hills and farmlands, is a delightful option. The cutesy town, a longtime favorite of American artists and painters, sits across the river from the US Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., with commanding views. Main Street is lined with shops and restaurants; there’s plenty of hiking and biking, and boating on the Hudson. Or, grab a seat on a waterfront bench and watch the river flow.
