AWARD-WINNING FOOD AND TRAVEL WRITER CARLY FISHER DEBUTS FIRST BOOK

EASY WEEKEND GETAWAYS IN THE HUDSON VALLEY & CATSKILLS

NEW YORK- Are Hudson Valley and the Catskills the next great escape? That’s been the question on

everyone’s mind since the New York Times declared these two regions as the latest travel Mecca

drawing celebrities, artists, writers, and other wayward Brooklyn creatives up north. For the first time

ever, Easy Weekend Getaways in the Hudson Valley & Catskills (Countryman Press; April 14th,

2020; Paperback; $22.95) shares the secrets hiding within the jewel of the Tri-State that trend-forward

travelers are really after: farm-to-table and artisanal producers; cozy mid-century modern cabins; fly

fishing on the Esopus Creek; skiing at Hunter Mountain; scenic bike and brew tours along the Heritage

Trail; fringe festivals and theatre; ice caves, sculpture parks, mushroom foraging, and much more.

Award-winning food and travel expert Carly Fisher has written a contemporary look at the Hudson

Valley and Catskills’ most talked about attractions, including: chef-approved restaurants, small-batch

distilleries and heritage cider houses, woowoo wellness retreats and luxury spas, crunchy waterfalllined hiking trails and fast-paced zip line courses, avant-garde galleries and unusual experimental art,

fascinating historical haunts, and quirky local events. Discover the scenic backdrops reviving awardwinning hits like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Dirty Dancing, or find the inspiration to create your own

vintage-inspired getaway.

Choose your own adventure using Carly’s handpicked weekend escapes, carefully designed for every

type of traveler — art lovers, foodies, history geeks and tree-huggers alike. No car or camping

equipment? No problem. Carly shares essential travel tips, from transit options and money-saving tricks

to packing lists and the best organized tours. Along with foolproof itineraries to popular destinations like

Beacon and Hudson, the guide is a first-of-its-kind look at up-and-coming destinations like Newburgh,

Kingston, Phoenicia, Woodstock, Livingston Manor, and other New York Magazine-approved

communities worth a weekend jaunt or a full-on relocation.

Easy Weekend Getaways in the Hudson Valley & Catskills takes the work out of planning DIY

adventures and brag-worthy road trips for those who are ready to go off-the-grid.
