Wait, what? How is Tivoli on the Car-Free list? Well, we’ll tell you. After investing the UCAT a while back, we decided to check around for other similar options in other counties, and we came across the Dutchess LOOP. We haven’t had a chance to try it out yet (but perhaps you, dear readers, have and can report on your findings), but a look at the schedule for Loop C reveals that a LOOP bus stops at the Tivoli post office, then makes other stops in Red Hook, Rhinebeck, and Hyde Park before stopping in Poughkeepsie at the train station. There are other routes, too, that include Fishkill, Beacon, Wappingers Falls, etc. Worth checking out. Anyway, this is a cute Gothic, although we’re not sure how we feel about the sliding chain link fence in the living room. But we like plenty of other things about it, including the sweet half-acre park-like yard. Walking distance to places in Tivoli, but getting out and about without a car can prove difficult (that’s our standard caveat about upstate car-free living).
