Between the fantastic mountain vistas, sparkling water, diverse culture and rugged trails, there is plenty to explore without ever being bored in the Catskills. Jump on the trails for mountain biking, hiking, or horseback riding.

Attractions are plentiful in this particular county. The original home of the Woodstock concert is the Bethel Woods Center of the Arts. Nowadays, it is home to huge name concerts, theater productions, and family fun with a museum shrine of the sixties. Who doesn’t love the 60s? Bethel Woods provides entertainment to all walks of life and different cultures. This is a must see in Sullivan County and is even worth the drive for a quick weekend away from the city.

The Monticello Raceway is another great place for adult fun at the track. Watch the horses compete around the track or play a hand of blackjack at the casino.

Golfing in the Catskills is some of the finest and you have a large selection of courses to choose from. The scenery cannot be unmatched. We suggest the Lochmore for the experienced golfer or the Villa Roma Country club for great views with a course in always fantastic condition.

They host a variety of events throughout the year and even heavily discount tickets to designated drivers. All well thought out and beautifully orchestrated.

The Catskills offers a vintage train that rides along its 12 mile track allowing visitors and residents take in the scenery, You might even be able to see a Bald Eagle!
