Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame

Housed in a Tudor-style building that was once William Cane's Good Time Stable, this museum honors the sport of harness racing through its history, its heroes and its story today.

Reviewed By kathleen e - Warwick, New York

The museum is very interesting and the gift shop is lovely. There is harness racing in the summer, especially during the Great American Weekend Fair, which is usually on the Fourth of July weekend. That has tons of great artisans and vendors and a great variety of food as well as entertainment all day. Its a great weekend. I have attended many business events at the museum in their banquet rooms which also are used for formal gatherings such as weddings, etc. Its worth a stop if you are in the area.

Brotherhood - America's Oldest Winery

Oldest winery in America.

Reviewed By rex e - Union City, New Jersey

Smooth wines, even the dry reds were smooth- dessert wines, ciders, everything is great tasting. $7 person for tastings.
Tours available also, as is dining across the Tasting Room in a Cafe- not cheap though.
Unfortunate to learn sugar is added to some of their wines, not a big fan of adding sugar to anything, but overall a nice day trip.

Soons puts their Heart and Soul into everything they make. Everything is Fresh and Baked to perfection. The Pies, Fudge Brownies, Cider Donuts, Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are the best. They have a wide selection of different salsa's, homemade peanut/cashew butter, fresh produce, just to much to list. Prices are very reasonable, and the Staff is Friendly, Helpful and ready to help with any questions. Betty Wilchek

We go here when we can to enjoy a bit of family competition at mini golf. But this time it was sad. People have obviously gone around the courses and intentionally damaged things. Additionally the course coverings are worn and need to be replaced. Still fun but not like the earlier days.

What a nice park, there is a really nice golf course, a dog park, and fishing pond. The Orange County Arboretum is part of this property. There is a play groung for the children and a chalet to enjoy after golf. There is even a sleigh riding, tubing hill to enjoy. A great county park.

Reviewed By cpac9 - Long Island, New York

My wife and I Hate Heights and were a little apprehensive to fly. Our children 8 & 11 not so much.We were notified at 2pm that we were good to go for our 6pm flight. We met the crew at the Airport and were greeted with smiles and Most of All a Sense of reassurance. They drove us to the lift off location where we climbed into a basket that had four sections. Two people per section and one in the middle for pilot. We were soon flying above the clouds and looking out as far as the eye could see. The flight lasted about an hour but passed too quickly. We landed near a corn field and celebrated with champagne. It is so peaceful and calming as if you were on a beach watching waves. This is a Must to Do in Life!

Exposures Gallery

Reviewed By Cac1234 - Germantown, New York

The photographs at Exposures Gallery will take your breath away. Nick captures nature at its best. He is a truly gifted photographer. His work is tastefully displayed. We first discovered the gallery by accident and returned to purchase a few photographs to display in our home. We have pieces from Europe, and will be proud to display Nick's work beside them. He has photographs of the Hudson Valley, Italy, and other European countries. Nick is patient and helpful; however, he is not pushy in any way. Stop in and browse at his work. You will be glad you did!

The first time I think it would be best to see an informational tour, you can check out your interests afterward. Check for special events. The Civil War reenactment in September is great!
Kids love making and taking candles. My granddaughter thought the chickens were very amusing.

Orange County Arboretum

Reviewed By Bob F - Goshen, New York

I complain about the taxes in Orange County as much as anyone but when I come here I feel like I might just be getting something for our money.

The gardens in the summer are beautiful and the Christmas Light display in December is inspiring. There is a pond, a tea house an alpine garden honey bees and the globe at the 911 memorial is spectacular in the summer.

You should visit anytime of the year.
