One the west side of the river route 9W is pretty scenic. Places of interest include Bear Mountain, WestPoint Military Academy

Along the east side, along route 9 and 9D, the towns of Hudson, Red Hook and Rhinebeck all are charming. Frederick Church's home http://www.olana.org/ near Hudson is quite beautiful.

The bit of road on the east side from the Bear Mountain Bridge south to Peekskill is quite scenic.

The Hyde Park area has the FDR home and a Vanderbilt mansion.

The town of Beacon is cute and has the DIA art museum.

Closer to Tarrytown there's Kykuit (a Rockefeller estate with a great art collection) and a collection of other historic homes.

Saugerties and New Paltz are other nice towns on the west side of the river.

New Paltz has the oldest street in the country (Huguenot Street) and you can tour some of the buildings as well as do a self-guided walk.

We spent a week driving from Tarrytown to Kinderhook and back. There was lots to see and do.

In addition to what was previously mentioned, consider Storm King, Washington's Headquarters, Manitoga. Union Church, Sleepy Hollow.
