"When Visiting the Falls, Remember the 3 P's: Parks, Pizza and Pleasant Memories!"

Wappingers Falls (not to be confused with its parent town of Wappinger) is located along NY Rt 9 and shared between the city of Poughkeepsie and town of Wappinger, is a lovely village in Dutchess County where you can still witness the breathtaking Majesty of the stunningly beautiful Falls from which the village proudly got its name.
