President Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor, are buried here. You will enjoy the grounds, library, film and scenic sites. Later this morning we arrive at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park area which sets the excellence in school provides a steady supply of talented chef's, many of whom fall in love with the region and stay on to create and cook in innovative restaurants. You will enjoy a unique tour of this amazing establishment which is normally guided by one of the Culinary Institute's attending students. This campus operates five award-winning and student-staffed public restaurants, all with their own personality and offerings, and we will then have the most distinct opportunity to enjoy an included lunch in one of these on-campus restaurants - enjoy your wonderful culinary experience! No trip to the Hudson Valley would be complete without visiting the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site. This mansion was established as a monument to an era, rather than a tribute to any one person or family. At that time, it was the first home in the town of Hyde Park to have electricity which was generated by a hydroelectric power plant located on a creek that runs through the property. The estate illustrates a way of life modeled on the English country house and boasts centuries old tree plantings, stunning Hudson River and Catskill Mountain views and Italian Gardens maintained by volunteers...it remains today a place to understand "lifestyles of the rich and famous from its time. We will visit one of the newest attractions called Walkway-Over-The-Hudson. This breathtaking pedestrian bridge stands 212 feet above the massive Hudson River and is 1.28 miles long, making it the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the entire world. Be sure to bring your camera so you can capture the magnificent views which will embrace everyone - you will find this to be simply breathtaking to say the least. The cost of reconstructing this Walkway LProject, now known as "Walkway-Over-The-Hudson" State Park, was $38.8 million dollars and was completed in October 2009. Enjoy this wonderful experience! After a busy day of enjoying the area, we will return to our hotel to freshen up before having dinner on your own at a near by restaurant.
