Catskills — The Catskills have been called the Borscht Belt, the Jewish Hills, the Swish Alps, and America’s First Resort Town. Regardless of what you call this woodsy, four-season destination, New York’s hipster- and hippie-haunted mountain playground is as diverse as the neighborhoods of Manhattan, each with its very own flavor. Whether you’re seeking a snowboarding run, an organic farm, a Buddhist yoga retreat, or an Orthodox Jewish resort, the Catskills offers a tranquil spot for everyone.

Why Go

For year-round mountain fun – from skiing to river tubing to antiques shopping – just 2.5 hours from New York City.
