Wether you are looking for a weekend getaway or for a week or two in the wilderness, the Catskills have something for you. The region is divided into four counties: Delaware, Greene, Sullivan, and Ulster, and are home to both the Catskills mountains and the 600,000 acre Catskill Park.
Originally settled by 17th century Dutch and English colonists, the region had developed enough by the mid 1800s to attract wealthy New Yorkers looking for a summer retreat with fresh mountain air, away from the hot city weather. Simultaneously, the area's scenic views and striking landscapes inspired a new genre of American art with the Hudson River School of painters, led by Thomas Cole, and motivated Washington Irving to set his famous 1819 short story, Rip Van Winkle, in the Catskill Mountains.
Here you can spend a day skiing or riding, hiking, biking, birding or boating. You can golf on 9 different courses, kayak, fish or swim. There are water parks, winter adventure parks for tubing and ice skating and fairs and festivals throughout the year. You can go to a zoo, ride a zipline, and visit a raptor center or an elk farm. Tour the historic Hudson-Athens Lighthouse, follow the Hudson River Art Trail, hike to iconic Kaaterskill Falls, or explore a number of unique museums.
