Famil​y Christmas in Hudson 

A Magical Family Christmas in Hudson, New York State

A Magical Family Christmas in Hudson, New York State

As the holiday season approached, my family (including my fur grandson) and I embarked on a charming winter adventure to Hudson, New York State. We picked Hudon as it is known for its picturesque landscapes, historic architecture, and vibrant local culture; Hudson promised to be the perfect destination for a memorable family Christmas. After we all flew in from different parts of the country (and the world for me) with anticipation, we set off on our road trip and headed from Boston to Hudson.

Exploring the Festive Charm

We were very fortunate that it snowed during our two-week stay, so we were all very excited (especially me) to have a white Christmas. Hudson welcomed us with open arms, adorned in festive decorations and a contagious holiday spirit. The town's charming Main Street was beautifully lit with twinkling lights, creating a magical atmosphere. We strolled along the cobblestone sidewalks, peering into the quaint antique stores and art galleries lined the street. Each store offered unique gifts, crafts, and locally made products, making it a delight to find unique Christmas presents for our loved ones.

Where to Stay

My family and I discovered a charmingly remodelled farmhouse in Ghent through Air BNB that accommodated four adults and our sizable Sheepadoodle Friday. The farmhouse sat on five acres of lush woodland, providing ample space for my furry grandchild to roam and adventure with his Mimi, mother, and uncle. We enjoyed an outdoor spa for relaxation after a day of exploring, as well as a cozy fire pit for making s'mores.


Our family's white Christmas in Hudson, New York State, was a magical experience. The town's festive charm, historic allure, and abundance of winter activities made it a memorable destination for our holiday getaway. From exploring the picturesque streets to cutting down our Christmas tree and indulging in delightful culinary delights, Hudson offered everything we desired for a joyous and unforgettable Christmas celebration. We left with hearts full of gratitude, treasuring the memories we had created in this enchanting town.
