Gear Up For a Catskills Summer

New roads, new towns, new experiences await this summer in the Catskills.

Located just a few short hours' drive north of NYC, is a world of cool, leafy green forests, deep lakes, winding rivers, vibrant downtowns, and towering mountain summits. This summer, when wanderlust tempts, jump in your car or on a train and head to the Catskills.

Kick the weekend off by stretching your legs and go hiking in the Catskills. Trailheads are easy to find and the views are hard to forget. For dog mamas and papas, the Catskills offer a relaxing pet-friendly vacation where pups can shake off their city life and explore new paths. Find secret Catskill waterfalls and swimming holes, and book the perfect Catskills camping location with just the right amount of close-to-town and middle-of-nowhere. Find the balance between natural beauty and an epic weekend at one of many summer events, including major music festivals and charming village traditions. And don't miss the legendary dining scene, where farm-fresh meets mouth-watering at Catskills restaurants.

Visit the Catskills this summer and experience something new, somewhere new.
