7 Ways to Stay Warm in the Hudson Valley This Winter

Whether you want to stay cozy at home or venture out and about, these to-dos will keep you warm and toasty in the Hudson Valley.

Knit a cozy accessory. With a beginner’s kit from NYC-based Purl Soho, you’ll be able to create a wooly triangle wrap or ribbed beanie in your favorite color combos. Bonus: Knitting is super relaxing. Visit purlsoho.com/kits to order.

Take a hot yoga class. Perfect your crane pose—and sweat out any bad energy—at studio Alma Yoga (in Newburgh and Cornwall), which offers seven types of heated (90–105°F) classes including vinyasa flow practice, Bikram, and Yin yoga.

Enjoy a fireside dinner. Feast & Floret (Hudson), Wildflower Farms (Gardiner), Beekman Arms (Rhinebeck), and Bear Mountain Inn (Tomkins Cove) all feature delicious food and lovely hearths.

Get some Asian noodle soup. There’s nothing like rich broth and umami toppings to ward off the chill. We like Yum Yum Noodle Bar, New Paltz’s iPho, Wappingers Falls’ Palace Dumplings, and Poughkeepsie’s Pandan Bistro.

Snuggle in a special blanket. Find your new favorite throw at Shop Little House in Woodstock. Their chic collection includes blankets made from lambswool, cotton herringbone, and mohair.

Sip on gourmet hot cocoa. Ditch Swiss Miss for the good stuff. Shops like Håkan and Hudson Valley Marshmallow Company (both in Beacon), Catskill Chocolate Company (Catskill), and Verdigris Tea & Chocolate Bar (Hudson) serve up mugs (and sell mixes to make at home) of craft chocolate goodness.

Indulge in a hot stone massage at spas like The Windham Spa (Windham), Buttermilk Falls (Milton), and Haven Spa (Rhinebeck). During 60-minute treatments, you’re guaranteed to warm up when heated, volcanic rocks ease tension and tight muscles.
