Hudson River Train Tour App

It’s like having the Hudson Valley in your pocket!

Between New York City and Albany, a world of history, nature, and culture awaits you. And there’s no better way to experience it all than by riding a train through the Hudson Valley. With the new, free Hudson River Train Tour app, you’ll discover what’s out that train window…and beyond.

Produced by the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area, in partnership with the National Park Service, this mobile app introduces you to castles, lighthouses, mansions, and more. You’ll see many intriguing sites along the rail lines, including a number of bridges, lighthouses, estate homes, and picturesque landscapes.

Part travel guide, part audio tour, the app not only identifies these waterside wonders-it helps you plan visits to the historic, natural, and cultural attractions located near Hudson Valley train stations.

Additional features include:

-Maps marking site locations. Using location services, the app will tell you about the sites you’re approaching in real time.

-Search for places that fit into significant regional themes, such as Freedom & Dignity, Nature & Culture, Corridor of Commerce, and The Hudson Up Close (includes recreational sites right on the river)!

-“Voices of the Hudson” audio series – listen to stories as you watch the world from the window.



Your Weekend Just Got Better! Look, listen, read…then step off and explore the Hudson Valley!
