Welcome To


Located where two rivers come together, Croton-On-Hudson is a big draw for those who love boating and other water sports. Also popular is hiking on the trails threading through massive Croton Gorge Park, one of the area’s most spectacular sights.


The perfect spot for outdoors lovers

If you’re headed to Croton-On-Hudson, chances are you don’t plan on spending too much time indoors. At the confluence of two rivers — the Hudson and the Croton — it’s a prime spot for activities like swimming, boating, and fishing. In the colder months, there’s cross-country skiing and ice skating on the nearby ponds. In warm weather, you can stroll around Croton Point Park, a 500-acre peninsula jutting into the Hudson.

Croton-On-Hudson’s Upper Village is centered around Grand Street, but this commercial strip isn’t as happening as those in neighboring villages. Its housing stock has a little bit of everything, with older and newer houses sitting side by side. As is true elsewhere, homes overlooking the water tend to be the most desirable. Express trains to New York City will get you there in under an hour, making Croton-On-Hudson an ideal commuter town.

Where to Get Your Bearings

Croton-On Hudson has had its very own coffee roaster, The Black Cow, for so long that the next generation has taken over running the place. It’s an impossibly friendly place, with mismatched furniture, paintings by local artists, and an upright piano. Try the lavender and vanilla lattes. If you have kids in town, Croton-On-Hudson has what is possibly the best ice cream shop ever, The Blue Pig.

What Locals Recommend

At the base of Croton Dam, Croton Gorge Park is easily one of the area’s most spectacular sights. You can stroll across the graceful steel arch bridge spanning the massive gorge, snapping photos of the plumes of water tumbling down the spillway.
