New-Paltz is located approximately 9 miles west of the town of Poughkeepsie on the banks of the Wall Kill River in the southern part of the state. This historic village was settled by the French Huguenots in the late 1600s, and six stone houses built between 1692-1712 still stand on Huguenot Street as part of the original settlement. The community is nestled between the scenic Hudson River and the magnificent Shawangunk Mountains in a four-season recreational playground. New Paltz caters to visitors with many boutiques, cafes, antique shops, art galleries, restaurants and other services. The Wall Kill River and nearby Minnewaska State Park provide opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating, rafting, canoeing, hiking, biking and mountain climbing. Each fall, the town of New Paltz sponsors a "Taste of New Paltz" festival. This "old-fashioned day in the country" features games, face painting for children, pony rides, live music, arts and crafts, with area restaurants and wineries providing samples of their bounty. The New Paltz area is also known for their "pick your own" farms, with everything from strawberries and sweet cherries in early summer to pumpkins in October. Other special events in town include The Hudson Valley Rail Trail Winterfest and the New Paltz Winter Carnival in February.

New Paltz Weather & Climate

The Hudson Valley Region, which generally refers to the canyon area of the Hudson River and surrounding communities in New York State, has a four-season climate. The first significant snowfall usually occurs in December, but there are variations. Some years there is no snow or ice and the temperatures and river stays quite mild - high 40s to low 50s. March is the month to look for the first signs of spring. Summers in the Hudson Valley are hazy, warm and humid. September can be a mixed bag of clear, cool Canadian air or humid, warm air with intense downpours. October is one of the best months in the region for hiking and other outdoor sports. The weather is cooler and less humid then, with crisp, clear views of the High Peaks of the Adirondacks, the Catskills and the Hudson Highlands.
