Less than 90 minutes from Midtown Manhattan, experience 250,000 acres, with 35 peaks and 350 miles of growing trails, including access to the world-famous Walkway Over the Hudson and Catskill Park. Ulster County has plenty to do — hiking and biking, kayaking, golfing, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing — and many more year-round activities.

Small business is the heart of the Ulster County economy. Shop around any of our small towns for goods made by local artisans. Experience world-class dining in one of our many locally-owned restaurants. Stroll through our art galleries, watch our actors onstage or catch a concert in one of our many live music venues.

Home to New York’s first state capital (Kingston) and teeming with old Dutch architecture (New Paltz), Ulster County offers centuries of history to discover — on your own or alongside fellow history buffs on a group tour.
