Beacon, NY features Dia:Beacon, a huge museum of contemporary art, which is a very well visited feature of the town. Beacon was once a sleepy working-class community but over the last decade, it's transformed into a very popular weekend getaway spot for folks in the New York area. You can visit world-class art exhibits, eat at one of the many farm-to-table restaurants and take a leisurely afternoon walk to visit some of the other attractions, such as The Pandorica, a café that was inspired by the television show, Dr. Who. Visit the Beacon Theatre, which was originally opened in the 1930s. It was a popular destination for movie screenings and vaudeville performances. Now it is the home of the 4th Wall Production Company, a local theater troupe that performs all throughout the year. Beacon is located just across the bridge from Newburgh. It only takes a few minutes to get there via I-84 E.
