Get to know Warwick

Nestled in the hills of New York’s Orange County, Warwick was a strategic encampment during the Revolutionary War for its location midway between the Hudson and Delaware Rivers. Today, its draws are more of a tasteful nature: Warwick is considered by many to be the apple capital of the Hudson Valley, boasting countless orchards and an annual Applefest. The downtown area hosts a delightful Main Street that's chockablock with eclectic shops and eateries, none more storied than Baird’s Tavern—George Washington even stopped in for a tankard in 1783. More recently, the community has become a farm-to-table epicenter, drawing gourmands with artisanal agri-ventures like Angry Orchard Cidery, Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery, and The Drowned Lands, a haute farm brewery fermenting experimental terroir-forward wild ales. Whether you’re here for a day, a weekend, or forever, it’s an upstate town you’ll love to its core.

Living in Orange County

Don’t call this one “the OC.” New York’s Orange County sits in the state’s Mid-Hudson region, bookended by Putnam and Dutchess Counties to the east and the Delaware River to the west. It’s the northern end of the Great Valley formed by the Appalachian Mountains, capped by the Ramapo Mountains as they escalate towards the Catskills. This dramatic landscape proved naturally advantageous in the American Revolution, which led to the founding of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Today, the attractions are anything but singular: Orange County plays host to some of the highest-profile cultural and entertainment destinations in the Hudson Valley, including Storm King Art Center, Woodbury Commons, Angry Orchard Cidery, and the soon-to-open LEGOLAND® New York Resort. Between them lie charming villages, verdant apple orchards, and rural hilltops prime for a socially-distant retreat by choice. I-84, Metro-North’s Port Jervis Line, and Stewart International Airport open gateways to destinations near and far.
