This Hidden Cultural Gem Is Just A 2 Hour Drive From NYC

After a year spent indoors, many of us are beginning to find safe ways to travel, even if that just means taking a drive to a nearby town you haven't explored before. Case in point: Kingston, New York — a historic gem hiding in plain sight. From the classic architecture, to the eclectic dining scene, to the thriving arts community, the city, located in the Hudson Valley, is the perfect day or weekend trip — and it's easily accessible by car in under two hours.
Watch the video above as R29's Steve Doss gets behind the wheel of the all-new Toyota Sienna to show us the very best the city has to offer in just 60 seconds — from must-try mac & cheese at PAKT, to fresh-made baked goods from Sweet Maresa’s bakery, to incredible Jamaican cuisine at Top Taste, we're showing you the best Kingston has to offer. It may just be all the inspiration you need to set off on your own weekend escape.
