Orange

Historic Orange is remarkable by nature: It is the only county in New York State that borders both the Hudson and Delaware rivers. The Appalachian Trail runs through it, and the Wallkill Valley Black Dirt Region here is famed for its bumper crops. There’s also no shortage of amenities and attractions: active yet accessible Stewart International Airport, historic West Point, shopping mecca Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, and the Orange County Choppers restaurant and motorcycle shop, made famous by The Discovery Channel, to name just a few.
