Map of NY State with Dutchess County HighlightedDutchess County NY in the Hudson Valley is a wonderful blend of lifestyles ranging from serene hamlets to city excitement. The county is dotted with farms of all types, historical sites, bistros and restaurants, and enough attractions and activities to satisfy even the most energetic sojourner.

Dutchess County is located in southeastern New York State, between the Hudson River on its west and the New York–Connecticut border on its east, about halfway between the cities of Albany and New York City. It contains two cities: Beacon and Poughkeepsie. Depending on precise location within the county, road travel distance to New York City ranges between 58 miles (93 km) and 110 miles (180 km).

The terrain of the county is mostly hilly, especially in the Hudson Highlands in the southwestern corner and the Taconic Mountains to the northeast. Some areas nearer the river are flatter.
