A new Harbor Freight Tools location is currently under construction in the Hudson Valley.

The low-cost tool store has exploded in popularity over the past few years as homeowners seek ways to save on home improvement. The company was listed by the National Retailers Federation as the fastest-growing company in the nation in 2022, with growth of over 93%.

Harbor Freight Tools has over 1,500 locations nationwide, with 64 stores in New York State. In the Hudson Valley, you can find Harbor Freight stores in Kingston, Poughkeepsie, Central Valley, Middletown, Nyack, Catskill and White Plains. While that may seem like a lot of stores, Harbor Freight is continuing to expand, announcing that a new Hudson Valley location will open this fall.

Hudson Valley New York Camping Resorts

The Hudson Valley is a camping destination for so many people including those of us who live locally. It is a great way to have a summer vacation every weekend close to home. Many places offer a seasonal rate for you to save money on your stay. You pull the trailer in for the summer and park it for the season which is usually May to October. The resorts we found offer family fun amenities and a season full of exciting activities.
