15 “Secret” Places to Visit in the Catskill Mountains
The Catskill Mountains of New York State are a place of incredible natural beauty, fantastic history, and a whole lot of "secret" places to explore and enjoy.
This list of 15 places includes the only mountain fire tower in the Catskills that you can actually drive to see. And what a view! Also, you will see some roadside oddities, such as "New York's Own Mount Rushmore." This is an amazing place and it also is credited with being the very first Civil War memorial in the country. Read the story below.
You will enjoy hearing about the Mexican restaurants in the Catskills (who knew?), as well as the wonderful collection of old-timey general stores. Kind of like Walton's Mountains stuff! And, how about a quick visit to the grave of one of the entertainment world's early radio and TV pioneers. She even won the very first Emmy Award for Lead Actress in a TV show. Look for her story below (and see who she competed against for the Emmy).
Each place has a link to the website where you can find more information about the subject matter.
We hope you enjoy these "secret" places and consider them on your next road trip around our own beautiful Catskill Mountain region.
