Whether you're visiting Rhinebeck for a few days or are a localite, Rhinebeck is sure to have something new for you. This Town is bustling with so many things to do and see that you might need to stay over a night or two. It is home to the Beekman Arms Inn. It is the oldest continually operating Inn in America!! I love their Sunday brunch. The Village was incorporated in 1834 and the history and homes are embedded in most every street you walk on. They have preserved these wonderful landmark homes and churches to your delight. Omega Institute is located in Rhinebeck as is the relaxing Haven Spa. If you have a fondness for the old time 5 and dime store, you must visit Al Stickle's 5 and dime store!! The childhood memories will flood back to the surface. I spend way too much time looking, touching, and of course buying in this store. The Dutchess County Fairgrounds should be on your 'must see' list. Especially when some wonderful 'event' is happening. Like the Wool and Sheep festival. Trails to walk or bike at Ferncliff Forest. You can bring your picnic basket if you like. So this is a teeny bit of info about wonderful Rhinebeck and the neighboring hamlets. The restaurants are too great to miss. The movie theatre that is known for wonderful foreign films and more.
