Winter, spring, summer and fall, any time of year is a great time to get out of New York City and head for the mountains! While there are plenty of great mountain getaways in upstate New York, one of my favorite destinations in the Northeast is the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont.

Specifically, Stratton Mountain Resort is a fantastic retreat destination any time of year. Stratton is of course best known as a premier ski resort, and the winter ski season is perhaps its prime time. But this lovely little alpine village is no less charming in summer time, and offers an terrific abundance of outdoor fun, featuring activities like hiking, biking, golf, tennis, kayaking, running, horseback riding, just about anything you would enjoy doing on a lazy summer day. It’s quaint little village also offers lots of great shopping, dining, live entertainment and plenty to keep the whole family engaged during your vacation.

There are many resorts, vacation homes and beautiful natural parks that one can explore in the this area. And it doesn’t matter what time of year either, for the Catskills are a great getaway whether it’s summer or wintertime, and any season in between.

In the summer months, there’s opportunities for golfing, boating, hiking, mountain biking, and many other outdoor activities. The same can be said for winter, where one can enjoy winter sports in many locations like skiing, snowboarding and cross-country.

Within a small geographical area, surrounded by beautiful mountains and incredible countryside, you have a concentration of many fine winemakers that have over the last several decades raised their profile to that of international stature.
