"Say goodbye to the hustle and bustle and hello to the Catskill Mountains - where you’ll find boundless acres of landscapes ripe with opportunities for outdoor adventure, festivals, and events that rival any big-city lineup. The Catskills are perfect for a quick weekend getaway from the city or week-long vacation with family or friends."
 

 

Enjoy scenic vistas on a Catskills hiking adventure, cast a line in a tranquil river or stream or discover the area’s bounty of cascading breathtaking waterfalls, big or small.


 

  


 
But along with its Zen-like vibe, the Northern Catskills offers plenty of excitement and action, too! Here you can fly down the longest, fastest and highest zipline canopy tour in North America at Hunter Mountain, paddleboard out to the historic Hudson-Athens Lighthouse or enjoy some family fun making a splash at the Catskills’ No. 1 water park, Zoom Flume.


 
While you are here, make time to take in one of the many live music, art or food festivals as well as the Catskills burgeoning craft brew market and “slow food” movement. Thanks to a mix of big events like the annual TAP New York Craft Beer and Food Festival and the growing number of new craft breweries opening their doors, the Catskills are slowly emerging as one of the East Coast's craft brew destinations.
