Perhaps our exploration of Liberty NY this week has left you tempted to visit the area. And, you should! You should come for a Liberty long weekend, spend some time checking out the Catskills Borscht Belt region, eat some good food, and sleep somewhere fun.
After all, while the Sullivan County village of Liberty is only 2 hours from NYC, there’s a ton to see in this part of Upstate.
*Go antiquing at Town & Country or Antique Palace Emporium.
*Take the kids for some outdoor winter fun at Holiday Mountain Ski & Fun Park 20 minutes south.
*Visit the actual Woodstock at the site of the original festival or poke around the Woodstock Museum at Bethel Woods less than 30 minutes away.
TL;DR: There’s plenty to do in and around Liberty to substantiate a three day weekend visit.
