Monday can wait. Take a break from the chaos with a perfectly planned upstate getaway.

The Hudson Valley and Catskills are destinations New Yorkers can’t get enough of. Unlike typical travel guides, Easy Weekend Getaways in the Hudson Valley & Catskills ditches the well-worn antiquing, golfing, and family-friendly activities for a focus on what’s really drawing creative and trend-forward travelers up north—experimental art, incredible agriculture, action-packed outdoor adventures, artisanal producers and makers, bizarre and fascinating historical attractions, rustic-chic bed and breakfasts, holistic retreats, and more, all hidden within a stunning landscape that delights year-round.

While these regions continue to gain popularity with city-dwellers, trying to make a break for it has always been a complicated DIY process. This guide takes the work out of piecing together an itinerary so that overworked travel-obsessives can get the most out of their precious time off with these curated upstate getaways.
