Beautiful Croton-On-Hudson: People and Places Worth Visiting

Croton-on-Hudson is a lovely village in Westchester County, New York, located about an hour north of New York City. The village was incorporated in 1898, and from the 1910s to the 1960s, Croton was a popular location for the summer homes of American communists, socialists and other radicals and many important artists and writers. It is now well known as the home of the Clearwater Festival , the annual music, art, and environmental festival started by Pete Seeger almost 40 years ago.

Croton has beautiful parks where you can walk or bike along the Hudson river. Every year the central business district closes off the main street to cars and hosts an annual event called the Summerfest, which features music, American food, local fund raisers, traveling, and local artists.
