Eat, Stay and Play in the Catskills, New York


Have you ever considered a family vacation to the Catskills?

Until recently I hadn’t considered traveling to the Catskills, New York, but after some time talking to Great Northern Catskills of Greene County, the idea started to intrigue me. Show me picturesque sights with mountains, waterfalls, and trails. Tell me about how I can explore the outdoors with my family. Invite me on an adventure with my family and I’m hooked. Throw in some skiing and it will be that much easier to convince my husband to pack up and take off on another family vacation.


While our first visit to the Catskills might have been in the winter, the Catskills offers activities and things to do for families year round.
