5 unique Christmas photography locations you can visit in New York
It amazes me how many holiday movies are created and/or shown on the Hallmark Channel. According to Good Housekeeping (and it may not be entirely true), there are nearly 300 holiday movies on their shelves.
The Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas movie series debuted on October 20, and features a total of 40 movies, according to Good Housekeeping, which released a list of its 35 favorite Hallmark holiday movies.
Did you know that some Hallmark holiday movies were filmed in New York State? There were also four films filmed in the Hudson Valley, and one in New York City, which seems like a good place for a holiday movie to me, given the scenery and winter wonderland.
Below are the four films and where they were filmed in the Hudson Valley and one in Manhattan. Thanks to Townsquare Media contributor Jess from our sister radio station, The Wolf in Poughkeepsie, New York, for the research.
These locations might make a nice day trip to check out where they were filmed and enjoy the holiday season in the area.
