Amtrak is the most fun way to travel to Hudson. A beautiful two-hour trip from Penn Station, the train runs along the Hudson River and has a snack car. Basilica Hudson is conveniently located 400 feet south of the Hudson Amtrak station. Because trains sell out quickly and prices increase with demand, we recommend booking ASAP, as the tickets are 100% refundable.
