Catskills & Area Trip Planner
Welcome to Catskills & Area!
The Catskills used to be the playground for New York City. It is still a popular destination for those seeking a break from the big city, and is particularly well-known for its big resort centers providing a multitude of leisure opportunities. Big name entertainers often visit the Catskills, and many famous comics got their start here. Attractions include Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, displaying vintage airplanes and more, and the various ski hills of the Catskill Mountains that are open during the winter months. For a look at the more affluent side of the Catskills, Lyndhurst Castle in Tarrytown features Gothic Revival architecture and lavishly decorated rooms. A number of parks dot the area as well, including the Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park near Mount Kisco, home to a large swimming pool that can accommodate several thousand people.
