Highland is a small hamlet in Upstate New York’s Ulster County, directly across the Hudson River from Poughkeepsie. The two cities are connected by the Mid-Hudson Bridge and the historic Poughkeepsie Bridge (AKA the “Walkway over the Hudson”), an old railroad bridge that now serves as a popular pedestrian route across the river. Highland features a small Downtown area along Vineyard Street, with vintage brick storefronts housing a diverse mix of cafes and other locally-owned businesses.

The hamlet is flanked by two large parks, Franny Reese Park on the riverbank and Illinois Mountain Park on the west side, providing sprawling venues for you to enjoy the region’s natural beauty.
