The school year is right around the corner so give your family a trip to look forward to for this upcoming Fall or Winter Break at the Sullivan Catskills in New York! This month, the Sullivan Catskills hosted a small group of Macaroni KID publishers (including me!) to explore their little paradise on the Delaware River, and the verdict – this is a bucket list vacation you didn't know you needed to move to the top of your list!

So ditch your same-old trip and its 11-hour drive (or 4 hour flight) and head east for a new experience that your family will be talking about for years to come. Between indoor water parks, outdoor adventures, and artistic and historic activities at the site of the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival, there truly is something for everyone in your family! Below are just a few highlights that will make you want to start booking your trip today:
For The Schedulers
Head to the Kartrite Resort and Indoor Waterpark for a one-stop shop for relaxation and fun for the whole family – including the planner.
Let the Kartrite take the stress off of your day by simply glancing at the "choose your own adventure" event calendar for the day. Whether it's splashing in the indoor waterpark, learning a new outdoor skill like archery with one of their expert trainers, getting your gamers fix at the arcade, or spending some quality downtime at the end of the day at one of their nightly Disney big-screen movies or Guinness Book of Records holding s'mores station – the Kartrite provides the perfect structure for a family that thrives on scheduling while taking a load off of the planner of the family! Let the Kartrite be your one-stop shop for family fun!
For The Adventurers
The pet-friendly, family-owned campsite is located on the Delaware River. This particular stretch of the Delaware River is full of beautiful sights and is a big nesting area for bald eagles – our national bird!
For The Artists and Historians
The Sullivan Catskills are home to the site of the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Fair at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. With a museum full of artifacts and footage, 100% donated by past attendees and community members, a walking tour of the festival site, and recreated pathways in the woods in the EXACT location the original Bindy Bazaar was at Woodstock, your family will be in awe and amazement for HOURS, still wanting to know more!
You may even find yourself enjoying the video and photographic yearbook of past attendees or score a tour from a volunteer who actually attended Woodstock!
For The Close-Knit Extended Family
With community-style, formal meals, and un-ending opportunities for water and outdoor activities, your family is sure to enjoy the relaxed and family-oriented atmosphere. There are catch and release ponds for fishing, bumper boats, indoor bounce houses, dinner theatre, pools, horseback riding, teen clubs, arcades, and so much more!
