Catskills

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

The Catskills of New York are a "dissected plateau", a highland worn into mountains and valleys by erosion. Largely rural and wild, the Catskills are a popular vacation destination for New Yorkers, but they also have much to offer the traveler from out of state. The Catskills are adjacent to the Poconos region of Pennsylvania.

Stay safe

Because New York City dumps all of it's crazies into Catskills, it is recommended that you stay inside during the night. During summer, many people go into the Catskills from the City. They are reckless drivers, so be careful when driving. In winter, the roads there have ice and it gets very slippery.
