Outdoor Weekend Getaway in Woodstock and the Catskills
Say "Woodstock" and the legendary Summer of Love concert (actually held in a field in nearby Bethel, NY) immediately springs to mind. Visit the town of Woodstock, one of the Catskill Mountains best-known enclaves, and you'll be able to enjoy not only remnants of the late-'60s hippie era, but also a thriving arts scene, a robust culinary revival, and access to outdoor activities from hiking and kayaking to skiing. Meanwhile, nearby Saugerties is transitioning from sleepy to chic with the addition of a new luxury hotel and restaurants headed by chefs who've relocated from New York. Summer and fall (when weekend concert series and arts festivals up the liveliness quotient) are optimal times to visit these Ulster County towns, but cozy inns and eateries serving hearty fare make even the colder months enjoyable. For an artsy, neo-retro weekend in the mountains, here are our favorite spots to eat, play and stay. – By Donna Heiderstadt
