Less than 90 minutes from Midtown Manhattan lies a 250,000-acre playground, with 35 peaks and 350 miles of growing trails, including access to the world-famous Walkway Over the Hudson and Catskill Park. Hiking, biking, kayaking, windsurfing, golfing, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing — outdoor adventure awaits year-round.

But you don’t have to go outdoors to have a good time. Shop around any of our small towns for goods made by local artisans. Stroll through our art galleries, watch our actors onstage or catch a concert in one of our many live music venues
