Ulster County invites you to “get lost on purpose” in this beautiful, historic and soulful area in the heart of the Hudson Valley while finding a plethora of exciting outdoor adventures, relaxing spa retreats, unique shopping excursions or eclectic arts and culture activities.

Less than 90 minutes from Midtown Manhattan, this 250,000-acre playground features 350 miles of growing trails, including access to the world-famous Walkway Over the Hudson and Catskill Park. Massive parks like Mohonk Preserve along with the rugged and beautiful Minnewaska State Park Preserve offer hiking, biking, kayaking, windsurfing, golfing, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing and more, providing outdoor adventures for every season and for every taste.

Speaking of taste…why not follow the Shawangunk Wine Trail, home to award winning wineries, cideries and distilleries, nestled between the Shawangunk Mountains and the Hudson River.

Tap into the county’s unique history throughout charming cities and towns like the 17th century Huguenot Street in New Paltz, a 10-acre National Historic Landmark District that tells the stories of a French Huguenot settlement. Explore Kingston that boasts three historic districts – all listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

After discovering a delectable dining experience at one of the county’s eclectic and enticing restaurants, let one of the renowned resorts, boutique hotels, cozy bed-and-breakfasts or a tricked-out vacation rental tuck you in at night.

Along with its proximity to NYC, Ulster County is also only 3.5 hours from both Boston and Philadelphia and an hour from Albany, a testament to the county’s motto of being “not far away but far from ordinary!”
