Thereís no real consensus of where the Catskill Mountains, or Catskills, begin and end; drive northwest of New York City until you see a working farmhouse, and youíre likely there. Head a few hours from the city to Delaware, Greene, Ulster and Sullivan counties, and the 700,000-acre Catskill Park at its heart, with 98 mountain peaks dissected by picturesque valleys and waterways. These stops are paradise for lovers of great food and drink.

The Roxbury Motel: A true getaway, the Roxbury Motelís whimsical rooms are styled after ’60s and ’70s movies and TV shows ó stay in The Partridge (Family) Nest, George (Jetson)ís Spacepad, or Maryann (of Gilligan fame)ís Coconut Cream Pie room, with its ceiling of upside-down meringue peaks. And you barely need to leave your retro-hipster wonderland: terrific seasonal food and cocktails are available across the street at Public Restaurant & Lounge.
