WARNING: This list is not sorted by which one is better; it is simply a straightforward list.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

NO. 1


When you walk through the streets of Rhinebeck and want to hang out with your friends somewhere, then you must have come across MegaBrain.

MegaBrain is a local comic book store at 15 East Market Street. Not only is it just an awesome comic book store, but it’s also a retro arcade with classics like “Space Invaders” and of course, the mildly addicting “The Simpsons.”

If you would like to learn more or even get a comic from the solitude of your home, click HERE!

NO. 2


Do you like vintage stuff?  Do you like music?

Have you ever heard of Rhinebeck Vinyl Vault?  If you haven’t, Vinyl Vault is a store at 23 East Market Street that specializes in music records and CDs.  It even has record players if you don’t have one already. Not only is this a great place to buy your favorite songs on vinyl, but it also is a great place to just hang out.

Website is to be put up, keep an eye out!

NO. 3


So, you find yourself wandering around Rhinebeck and begin to grow hungry. Rather than go home, you can get a snack at Bread Alone.  Just make sure you are the first one there, because it gets crowded!

Bread Alone is a bakery located on 45 East Market St.  It sells everything from grilled cheese to side salads. If you want to know more, go to their website right… HERE!



At this point, I really don’t need to introduce the candy-mania that is Samuel’s.  But if you need a refresher, Samuel’s is a local candy store located on 42 East Market St, and it has everything! From the smallest of sweets, TO THE BIGGEST OF PASTRIES!

Samuel’s is something that makes Rhinebeck special in a way that can’t be replaced easily. To learn more click the link HERE!



If you like doing art, from minor doodles to large scale murals, then Rhinebeck Artist’s Shop is the place for you.

Rhinebeck Artist’s shop is a locally owned art store on 56 East Market St. It sells everything you need: paint brushes, paints, crayons, even clay.

Not only does it sell art supplies, but if you display art rather than do it, they can also get your picture framed! The Rhinebeck artist’s shop has been here for a long time and that doesn’t make it any less cooler, so check out their website right HERE!
