Catskills Makes List Of Best Fall Foliage Trips
Here in New York, fall is almost here. If you're looking for beautiful colors, you don't always need to head North from Central New York. Head down to the Catskills. Recently, the region made a list of the best fall foliage trips in America.
"The 6,000 square miles in southeastern New York known as the Catskills are home to six major river systems, thirty-five mountain peaks over 3,500 feet, and the famed Woodstock festival. A year-round destination, the Catskills are at their most vibrant in the fall when yellows, oranges, and reds electrify the thickly wooded hillsides. Locals and visitors alike savor the fall harvest, when many of the region's historic villages host festivals and craft fairs alongside the bountiful farmers' markets and pick-your-own orchards."
Remember, the best time to see fall foliage in the Catskills is the last two weeks in September through mid- to late-October.
