Hudson Valley and Catskills

Jump to last reply

My 45 year HS reunion is being held in Tarrytown, NY in mid-August, and my DH & I have decided to add a week's vacation. I'd like to mosey up the Hudson (maybe as far as Saratoga Springs, maybe not) and then into the Catskills. Coordinating when we can be where with what's open when will be a little bit of a challenge, but I think that I'm up to it! We like history, nature, hiking, some art, seeing what makes one place different from the place down the road.
As I've been reading multiple guidebooks and surfing the Internet, here are some of the places that sound interesting to me. I'd love to hear the impressions of people who have visited.
