Best Place to Walk and Shop

First and Main, Hudson

This tree-lined patch of shops and restaurants captures the quaint feel of a 1950s town square. Children enjoy ice-cream cones from Cold Stone Creamery while their parents listen to live music in the middle of the grassy quad. Specialty stores include Abigail & Annie's, which sells housewares and knickknacks, and the Land of Make Believe, which offers classic board games like Candyland.
