The Beacon Vibe

Clustered around Fishkill Creek is the industrial side of Beacon. The roots of this small city are visible but some hidden remnants remain. Follow Beacon's Main Street to the East End, cross the train tracks and start exploring. You can still get an idea of what an industrial mecca it use to be. 

Last season Hudson Valley Bucket List brought small groups around with stories that guests could interact with. During our tours, day trippers and weekenders would stop us, curious into Beacon's most visible history, factory remnants, the buildings. They are truly unique architecturally with each having their own vibe and story.

The new businesses taking up residency in these once retired spaces continue the romantic lore; a once old, dirty factory and transforming them into ultra-unique industrial, modern spaces producing sought after hand crafted Hudson Valley goods and services.

If you have a group of 10 or more, we can coordinate a plan a private tour. Call 845.943.9490 or email [email protected] to request more information.
