The Catskill area is full of natural beauty and is perfect for a weekend break, being only 100 miles from New York City. The Catskill Mountains are incredibly picturesque, with acres of countryside and streams and rivers creating an ideal backdrop for travelers looking to explore the great outdoors. There's also a distinct New Age vibe around the region, with three monasteries and a hippie chic atmosphere.
If you’ve ever wanted to meditate next to a waterfall, in the Catskills there are plenty of options to do just that, with marvelous cascading falls are found easily by foot or car. Some, like Vernooy Kill Falls, are family-friendly with calm swimming holes, while others, like the dramatic Kaaterskill Falls, are powerful and the tallest in NY State.
The Catskill region is also the birthplace of American Fly Fishing, meaning there are numerous places to cast a line out here, whether you're an expert or beginner. Additionally, there are miles of hiking trails, whether you're looking for a short, easy trail or something more challenging among the peaks (some are above 3,500 feet!).
If you want to mix up your time in nature with some culture, there's always something going on in the Catskills with live music, art, food, yoga, and much more -- not to mention a burgeoning craft brewing scene here with great festivals, wineries and breweries to be entertained by.
