New York's Famous Catskills

The Catskills provide the perfect environment in which to find yourself, or lose yourself. Rediscover history in the stone houses of Hurley. Lose track of time flyfishing at Beaverkill Stream. Catch your breath at the snowy summit of a black diamond slope at Belleayre Mountain. Abandon your inhibitions along the Shawangunk Wine Trail. Add to your collection with a treasure from the Mountain Culture Festival. Check out, turn off the cell phone and soak up a treatment at one of the region's many spas and resorts.

Even now, the proximity to New York City and easy accessibility from other major Eastern cities makes the Catskills an ideal refuge from the daily grind. Find rejuvenating solitude, plan a romantic escape, give the family a thrill, or, as in centuries before, meander through the villages rubbing elbows with the famous.
