Red Hook is the name of both a village [1] and a township [2] in Dutchess County New York. The town encompasses the villages of Red Hook and Tivoli, as well as the hamlets of Annandale-on-Hudson, Barrytown, and Upper Red Hook. Red Hook Area Chamber of Commerce [3] provides additional tourist information, and it is not to be confused with Red Hook, Brooklyn. This Hudson River town offers spectacular fall foliage and has farmers' markets and apple orchards where you can pick your own fruits and vegetables.
