RV-A-Gogo: Admiring the beauty, history and food in the Catskills Region

Listen to this story

WASHINGTON — About two hours outside of New York City in the southeastern part of the state lies the Catskill Mountains. The Catskills region of New York has long been a destination for travelers with its rolling hills, lush valleys, pleasant streams, and tumbling waterfalls. From its first hotel built in the 1820’s to the free spirited 1960’s, folks eager to escape bustling dirty cities flocked here in search of fresh clean air and to commune with nature and appreciate the natural beauty.

A large portion of the Catskill Region is protected lands meaning there is plenty of rustic beauty and room for hiking, fishing (fun fact: the region is where fly fishing first began), biking, and more. The area was coined “a land of streams” because of the plentiful and magnificent waterfalls, nearly 150 in all. One of the most popular is the Kaaterskill Falls in the Catskill Forest Preserve.
