The City of Beacon is a small post-industrial city along the Hudson River. The local economy is reliant on tourism, as Beacon has become one of the most popular weekend trips for New York City residents and is one of the most frequented destinations along the Metro North Hudson Line. Beacon also offers visitors: • Views of the New York City skyline and the Hudson Highlands mountain range • Access to greenspace including hiking and walking trails • Dining, entertainment, and retail opportunities along Main StreetBy maximizing the potential these assets have, Beacon can effectively diversify the reasons people are visiting, despite being known as an artist community.
