What is there to do in the Catskills, particularly near Boiceville/Phoenicia/Haines Falls/anywhere else in Ulster County?
My husband and I are attending a wedding in Boiceville, NY in June. We've never been upstate. He's probably more nature-oriented than I am, but I'm cursed with being a magnet for mosquitos, which is why I rarely leave the confines of NYC for the great outdoors.
But! Maybe it'll be nice to see some form of fauna other than subway rats and dogs in sweaters. Are there lakes or other natural recreational activities to enjoy? What places nearby should we check out? I am not a huge fan of hiking, but if it's truly breathtaking I may change my mind.
Also, are there any pretty towns to explore? Restaurants to visit?
We're arriving on a Friday evening and driving back Sunday afternoon. The wedding will start at 4PM that Saturday. We'll be staying at the Twilight Lodge
in Haines Falls.
