Escape the city here

The Catskills are famous for its summers; inspiring sunny, family vacations for over 150 years. Maybe it's the waterfalls, preserve, and roaring rivers scattered about the region. Or maybe it's the scenic 26-mile Catskill Trail.

Festivals and fairs are everywhere, railroads chug through old forest, and antique hounds find plenty to howl at. For whatever reason, sitting just two hours outside of New York City, the Catskills are a great place for taking in a breath of fresh air, grabbing some R&R and having a peaceful summer.
