The Cutest Things to do in Beacon, NY

Have you ever heard of Beacon, NY? If not, you should! It offers some of the best things to do in the Hudson Valley.

Beacon is a charming little town in upstate New York. Restaurants, culture, and art are embedded in this community. Not only does it make a perfect day trip up from NYC, but folks from all over the Hudson Valley flock here on weekends to peruse the shops, art galleries, and people watch.

It's been having a resurgence in the last decade fueled by artists leaving NYC with the promise of cheaper rents and less grit. (In fact, my husband and I moved here from Brooklyn for a year!)

Because of this, you'll find many art spaces (including the famous Dia Beacon) and a prominent live music scene thanks to folk legend Pete Seeger (Beacon was his hometown.)

It's the perfect sleepy town getaway with an artsy twist. There are too many cute little cafes to count. And you'll have the time of your life stopping at each an every shop on your lazy stroll down Main Street!

So I've put together a list of the best things to do in Beacon, NY. That way, you can create your perfect weekend in Beacon for yourself!

How to Meditate for Beginners

How to meditate

Have you ever considered a meditation practice? Also called practicing mindfulness, meditating is a wonderful way to manage stress and anxiety. Unfortunately, I was brought up with the idea that meditating was a little bit weird, and my family didn't really get it. But luckily, over the years times have changed, and meditation is now widely practiced by many people all over the globe.

Meditation is such a wonderful way to maintain a sense of calm and clarity in the most trying situations. How do I know? Because I've been personally meditating for years!
