Warwick has What Everyone Wants
Nestled in a picturesque valley, about an hour and fifteen minutes from the GW Bridge, you’ll find Warwick, New York. Both a historic and progressive little town, Warwick and the Warwick Valley have been attracting visitors from all over the world. It could be said that “Warwick has what everyone wants.”
The historic buildings that comprise Warwick’s downtown are filled with shops and restaurants offering a variety of goods and cuisines. Come and enjoy signature annual events such as Applefest, which is attended by 30,000–35,000 people and celebrates the fall apple season. The Community Showcase is also a popular event, giving all businesses an opportunity to highlight their services on Warwick’s busy main street for a day. You won’t want to miss Ladies Night Out, which offers women the opportunity to dress up, shop and dine. Lastly, experience the Taste of Warwick — featuring a multitude of restaurants during a lovely “date night” at one of the local wineries.
Travel outside the village for about six miles and you will find the black dirt region. Dinosaur bones have been discovered in this rich volcanic soil where onions and turf are grown to be sold outside the area. Many artists have been inspired by this region which could be called “nature in precision” with its neat rows of plantings.
This area is also known for its history. George and Martha Washington traveled through Warwick and stayed at one of the village’s 12 properties owned and maintained by the very active Warwick Historical Society. In addition, Warwick’s newly built library was named “Best Small Library in America” in 2016. Not to be outdone, the famous Bellvale Creamery — ranking number 2 in the nation by TripAdvisor — is a popular hilltop destination for “ice cream with a view.” It has a drive-in movie theater where tailgating is lots of fun.
The region has many orchards, golf courses, craft breweries, distilleries and wineries. Within a short distance of the Village of Warwick is the Village of Greenwood Lake, a nine mile body of water that offers a public beach and dockside restaurants. In another direction, Vernon, NJ, also part of the Valley, draws a resort crowd for luxury spas, water parks and various winter activities. The resorts accommodate weddings and events with their hotels and catering capabilities. Plan your getaway today at warwickcc.org.
