On a cold Wisconsin day I love going to the Y. Walking outside after a good workout is the one time that I love to feel the cold winter air on my face. I'm usually just a treadmill runner, but i do like that there is a small track for when I want to do some real running. The kids love the pool and waterslide. The babysitting area is nice, the classes are fun and full. There is a skate park outback for the teenagers, as well as teen nights the middle schoolers like. The Y has a healthy retirement group that can be seen drinking coffee in the lobby. It really is a nice meeting place for the city and a place I especially love in the winter.
Membership is $66 for an adult and $122 for a family (and they do have a sliding scale according to income). Memberships come with guest passes so you can bring a friend or your family member that doesn't have a pass. You can also try out the Y free for a week, so I would recommend everyone in Hudson should at least enjoy the Y for a week. Unfortunately they don't sell day passes anymore so you need to either have a membership or come with a friend to enjoy the Y after your first week.
