The Hudson Valley/Catskills Welcome Center is located at the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in Central Valley, Orange County.
It includes a Taste NY market, operated by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County, offering locally-made food and gifts like artisanal jams, maple products, honey, chips and crackers, granola, organic skin and hair care products, and New York State wooden serving ware. The shop will also sell I LOVE NY merchandise, including shirts, magnets and travel mugs.
Visitors are also welcomed by a 270-degree wraparound video screen that highlights local tourism attractions and destinations. Outside the Center, a large I LOVE NY sculpture provides visitors with an iconic spot for group photos and selfies. A Walk of Fame recognizes famous New Yorkers from the regions, and a patio offers café seating.
