Go back in time thirty years ago to see what lay between the north of Manhattan and the New York state capital, Albany. To many, the answer was likely “not much” if you were traveling through this area known as the Hudson Valley. Once home to a number of boarded up homes and businesses, today the area is acclaimed for individuals who are reimagining the area: artists.

Often times the home with the most space is, by default, the host location for major holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations. Several home reports have indicated that formal dining rooms, however, may become a thing of the past within many millennial households. It’s said that this population would trade in a formal dining space for more functional purposes such as an office or play room. Could this just be an excuse to have Mom or Dad continue to host holidays? Here are a few feast-worthy dining rooms that we wouldn’t dare to trade up – we’ll take the homes, too.

Prince Edward Country is growing from a secluded municipality into a getaway for foodies, techies, artists and adventurers. 'The County’, as locals refer to it, has a rich history in Canada, boasting a number of periods of influence and prosperity.
