"In many ways, residents of Orange County have the best of both worlds. On one hand, they bask in beautiful rural surroundings of farms, pastures, and small towns. On the other, they enjoy easy access to New York City, which lies a scant 40 miles down the Hudson River. You are about to tour some of the county's loveliest lakes, farms, and meadows. Along the way you can choose to visit two villages that are unlike any others in the tristate region. Things to See: Round Lake, Walton Lake, Sugar Loaf Village, Museum Village."
