"Valentines Gift Guide - Love Local

Updated: Mar 12, 2021

A chill is not the only thing in the air here in the Hudson Valley, this is the season for love! The colder it gets outside, the more we want to spend the day cuddled up in front a fire with the person that means the world to us. With Valentine's Day a few weeks away it's time for us to show that special someone just how much they truly mean to us. We've put together a list of some of Hudson Valley's local shops, makers, and other unique businesses to help make this beautiful day that much more special.


Monticello Motor Club

Get your loves heart racing with The Ultimate Test Drive at Monticello Motor Club, The World’s Premier Automotive Playground. This high-performance driving experience will put them behind the wheel of the innovative and fully-electric Porsche Taycan. They’ll tackle the twists and turns of MMC’s famed 4.1 mile road track with their own professional driving instructor. This experience also includes testing the Taycan’s launch control- reaching 60 mph in under 3 seconds- and a hot lap with a pro driver at the wheel. Participants must be 21-years old and have a valid driver's license. All experience levels are welcome, from complete novices to racing veterans. Cost for ½ day experience: $870.

Monticello Motor Club, just 90 minutes from New York City, features 4.1 miles of smooth race-grade asphalt dedicated to the driving pleasure of its members – individuals and families who are passionate about motorsports, who relish the driving experience, and who seek a place of belonging among like-minded people. But MMC is more than a race track. It is a luxury family destination with an array of services and amenities, such as professional instruction, track-side support, premium car storage, racecar rentals, a complete karting facility, an expansive off-road course, private race schools for novice to experienced track enthusiasts, corporate entertainment, fine dining, and five-star services.
