Check out Foursquare and "Check-In" at the Resort!

The Hudson Valley Resort & Spa is a pretty big place, and with so many things to do it can sometimes be a challenge to keep track of your friends and family while at the Resort or exploring the Hudson Valley.

We know how frustrating it can be trying to track someone down in an unfamiliar place- so we've created "check-in" points at many of the Resort's features and amenities using "Foursquare", a mobile social sharing App!
"I think Janie's at the pool... Michael said he was going to the Golf Course, but he might stop by the Arcade Center first.  John went to play Tennis (or was that basketball?).  Mary... well, I'm not sure where Mary is!  Maybe at the Spa?"
Sound Familiar?  Enter technology.  

Foursquare lets you share where you are with your Facebook friends and Twitter followers using your iPhone, Android, Blackberry, or other mobile device.  It’s a fun way to keep track of your friends and family, share venue tips, and explore local attractions!

How it works:

If you haven’t already, download the Foursquare App to your mobile device at it’s completely free, and sign up is quick and easy!  

Foursquare uses your mobile device’s geo-location (gps) service to pinpoint your location upon request.  You can then choose to “Check in” at that location and let others know where you are, learn about local events and attractions, share venue tips and photos, and more!

Best of all, you can allow Foursquare to post your check-ins to your Facebook timeline and Twitter feed- what better way to let folks back home know how much fun you’re having at the pool?

Foursquare isn’t just a valuable tool, it’s also a lot of fun!  Points are earned for each check-in, badges are awarded for various achievements, and the person who logs the most “check-ins” at a particular place is declared “Mayor”! 

Try it out on your next visit to Hudson Valley Resort & Spa! Visit for more information, or to download the App!
