Hidden Gems of the Catskills

skiing in the catskills

Your high-rise city apartment in the big apple feels small right now. You’re overdue for a cold brew by the mountains, retail therapy, and that winning feeling at live table games in Resorts World Catskills.  You want a stress-free weekend so here’s what’s on your itinerary…

Peace, Love & Woodstock!

Bethel Woods Center for the Arts
Maybe it’s been a few years (53 to be exact but who’s counting) or you’re a lover of 60’s rock; the site of the legendary Woodstock music festival is in Resorts World Catskills’ backyard. Check out what really went down at the most notorious musical festival to date by walking the museum, reopening April 1st. While we wait for New York to get hot, an indoor venue is also offering concerts with a more intimate feel.

Age Like Fine Wine (or Brews)

Let’s match your vibe today…

Roscoe Beer Co. Brewery
Brewery and beer garden with a cabin feel. Sip on flights by the warm fireplace or dress warm and grab a picnic bench to take in the Catskill Mountains. The cowboy fries and pulled pork sandwich have your name all over it.

Brotherhood Winery
Escape only an hour from the city and arrive in the 1800s.  Underground cellars and a cobblestone patio with a vintage feel awaits. Visit the tasting room or take a private tour through America’s Oldest Winery.

Do Good Spirits (Formerly Prohibition Distillery)
One of the first distilleries in the state of New York, offering classic American spirits.  Grab your furry best friend and head to Do Good Spirit’s tasting room. Sip for a good cause! All proceeds from the tasting room are donated to CIA heroes and their families.

Adrenaline Junkies This Is For You

 Outdoor vs Indoor fun, your call.

Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark
Grab your suit and head to New York’s biggest indoor waterpark for some family fun. After you hit the slides, check out the arcade, bowling alley, and scenic hiking trails.  With eight eateries and bars, the adventure and food options are limitless!

Monticello Motor Club
Family fun at a different speed!  Take your Ferrari out for a real joy ride on the racetrack or pilot a Miata racecar. Share the experience with your kids 6+ on the private karting track.  Quit hitting your invisible passenger seat break and take your teen to race camp where they learn high-speed avoidance, sliding skills, and how to be a safe, more competent driver.

Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun Park
Meet you on the slopes! Seven trails for all levels – grab your snowboard, skies or a tube and slide down these snow-covered mountains. No snow? No worries, Holiday Mountain slopes are covered with deep manmade bases for your ideal winter wonderland experience.
