The incomparable beauty and quaint charms of Rockland County offer peaceful, pastoral countryside spiced by river villages, historic sites and, arguably, the world’s most beautiful river valley. It’s unmatched as a getaway spot for a day, a week, or more. There are magnificent Hudson River views that once inspired a whole school of American painters. 32,000 acres of unspoiled parklands. Rolling mountains, sparkling lakes for swimming, fishing and boating. Unique historic sites that made important contributions to America’s earliest history. Intriguing museums, landmarks, music and theatre await you.
But don’t be fooled by its seemingly rural charm. Because of Rockland County’s proximity to New York City (16 miles), and residents that are no less than icons in the theatre, arts and business, there is a sophistication found only in big cities. With Palisades Center Mall and close-by Woodbury Commons, boutiques, shops and galleries, you will find endless shopping opportunities and restaurants that rival Manhattan’s best.
