Meet the woman behind Hudson Valley Bucket List. Becky Varone. A native for over 30 years and she is still exploring. "I'm obsessed with the evolution of the region", when you think you've seen or heard everything the Hudson Valley surprises you. I like giving guests a 20th century perspective and blending the history of the region, local lore, and experiences that sets it apart".
The surge of people "day tripping", Beacon has turned into a destination. Becky Varone weighs in, "Beacon was the first location for our walking tours and is perfect. The city blends art, history, and culinary with an "underdog" quality to it. It's exciting to see and give a firsthand account of this transformation". Beacon is the Hudson Valley's "Medici Effect" on a small-scale worth exploring.
