Treat Yourself to a Relaxing Catskills Getaway

The Catskills in southern New York State is among the most popular vacation destinations in the region for those who are looking for rest and relaxation, and there is good reason for this. The area is known for its gorgeous rolling hills and mountains as well as its abundance of things to do. When you stay at your Catskills vacation home, you may have all of the comforts and conveniences of your own home in this idyllic setting. This may include everything from a full kitchen to a deck or patio overlooking the Catskills.

Outdoor Recreation

There are an incredible range of opportunities for you to spend time outdoors while staying in your Allaben area home, and these activities vary from season to season. For example, in the winter months, Hunter Mountain, Overlook Mountain and Windham Mountain are just a few of the popular skiing and snowboarding destinations that you could visit. During the warmer season, you can enjoy fun adventures at the zipline and aerial adventure park in the area, or you could relax while touring the sculpture garden at Opus 40. The Catskill Animal Sanctuary is another popular spot during the warmer season, and you can spend time learning more about the native wildlife in the area. In addition, everything from horseback riding to hiking are popular outdoor activities when the weather is nice.

Shopping

Many people love to shop while on vacation, and you will not be disappointed with the options when you stay in your Coxsackie vacation home. The most popular shopping destination is the Main Street shops in the Catskills, and here, you will find dozens of mom and pop shops, restaurants and other venues that will keep you engaged. There is also an Antique Trail that you can explore if you are into antiquing, and this is a great way for those who love antiques to pick up some new pieces.

Museums

The Catskills is a truly historic area that offers you plenty of opportunity to learn more about the area through its history and culture museums. With so many museums to choose from, you may opt to choose only a few to explore on each visit. Some of the top options to consider are the Museum at Bethel Woods, the Thomas Cole National Historic Site, the Hanford Mills Museum and others. For more culture, you can also explore the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the Lighthouse and the Forestburgh Playhouse.

Weather

The Catskills is an area that exhibits all four seasons throughout the year, but the cooler season is generally longer and more intense because of the elevation. The base elevation in the town is 4,180 feet, but the elevation increases dramatically in the mountains. This change in elevation can make it challenging to pack for the season, so it is often smart to dress in layers and to expect significantly cooler temperatures on days when you will be in the mountains.

How to Get There

Getting to the Catskills is rather easy to do, and there are several options available for doing so. If you are flying into the area, you can fly into one of the major airports that serve the New York City metropolitan area. From New York City, you can rent a car and travel north along Interstate 87. In Kingston, turn west onto Highway 28, and you will soon arrive in the Catskills. There are also bus routes that take you close to the Catskills, and you can rent a car to travel the remaining distance into the area.
