City Information

Hudson

Hudson is a fashionable, accessible city in the middle of New York's Hudson Valley. Set at the foot of the Catskill Mountains along the Hudson River, this once-sleepy village is now a hip destination for New Yorkers to hit up on weekend getaways.

Stroll down Warren Street to soak in some of Hudson's small-town charm, and hunt for treasures in boutiques, antique shops, and book shops. Seriously, the antiquing in Hudson is no joke. The Antique Warehouse alone is 40,000 square feet of one-of-a-kind furniture and architectural elements.

Thanks to its location in the agricultural mecca of the Hudson Valley, Hudson is an incredible spot to visit for foodies. There are more farm-to-table restaurants than you can count, and there is a five-star coffee shop at nearly every turn.

It's easy to get to Hudson from anywhere in the Northeast if you have your own car, which is ideal if you plan on bringing home some antique furniture. It's also super affordable to take the train to Hudson, and getting there from New York City takes only two hours.

Philadelphia

We may feel a little bit more than just brotherly love for Philadelphia, a city steeped in history and culture. Where else can you channel your inner Rocky Balboa on his epic run, and later enjoy an authentic Philly cheesesteak as a reward?

Philadelphia’s affordability (especially compared to other East Coast cities) is just one of many reasons it is among Wanderu’s best destinations for college students. Another reason is how much there is to do! Early American history takes precedence at Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, while museums abound on Benjamin Franklin Parkway, sometimes called the most artistic mile in the city. Fuel up at the Reading Terminal Market or Italian Market, both offering fresh food from local vendors, to prepare for a night hitting up the bars, clubs, and live music joints that line up South Street.

Philadelphia is a major hub for both Greyhound and Amtrak, and its 30th Street Station is one of the busiest stations in the country. The plentitude of ground travel and the nearby Philadelphia International Airport make this exciting city very easily accessible, even on a budget.
