Whether you are planning a day trip, a vacation, or just passing through, the natural beauty of our area and friendly small town charm is what you will discover.
Southern Washington County possesses beautiful farm land and landscapes. We are home to farm stands (Hand Melon Farm, BJ Farms), u-pick farms (Borden's Orchard), dairies (Battenkill Valley Creamery), vineyards (Victory View Vineyard, South Dominion Vineyard), craft breweries (Argyle Brewing Company, Scotlander Brewing Company), and farmer's markets (Gather 103, Lakota's Farm) all with the bounty of this land.
The Batten Kill is a nationally known trout stream. Come tube, kayak, canoe, and fish. Visit the town beach for a swim or a picnic. For excellent bird watching and water sports, enjoy a trip to Carter's Pond or Cossayuna Lake. Conservationist group Grassland Bird Trust has numerous bird and wildlife locations. Take a hike at Thunder Mountain Recreation Area or hit the slopes at Willard Mountain ski area. Activities await at Hudson Crossing Park set along the Hudson River and Champlain Canal with a foot bridge connecting Saratoga and Washington Counties.
If you are looking to shop or eat, there are many options. While in the village, stop by Greenwich Village Cafe & Bakery for breakfast or lunch at Livery Square, then to The Country Peddler Shoppe or Just Because boutique. On Main Street you can visit The Pennywise Shoppe and have dinner at Wallie's or Elsasser's Beim 111. Grab a coffee and a delicious cinnamon bun at Coffee And and head out on the back roads to the historic Owl Pen Books store.
Every year we celebrate the seasons, our history, and the small town rural lifestyle enjoyed here for generations.
Kick off summer with the Whipple City Festival in June and close out the season at the Washington County Fair in August. In the fall, the Washington County Cheese Tour takes you to area cheese producers. The Holiday Lighted Tractor Parade in November highlights the agricultural community with a procession of tractors lit up to mark the holiday season. Each spring in April, the Tour of the Battenkill, one of America's largest single day races, takes cyclists across covered bridges, scenic views, and over 5,000 feet of elevation gain.
The Village of Greenwich has been called "the most extraordinarily beautiful and architecturally intact village in all of upstate New York." Prominent citizens of Greenwich in the mid-1800s played an important role in the anti-slavery movement. Take a self-guided tour starting in Mowry Park and see the historic houses that once were a part of the Underground Railroad.
We hope you come explore Greenwich and neighboring Washington County communities like Cambridge and Salem. Located just 20 minutes east of Saratoga Springs, 30 minutes south of Glens Falls, and less than an hour north of Albany.
