When people come to the County, they are typically being drawn to towns they visited once before, places that a friend told them about, an adorable hamlet they read about it. It’s not always easy for the visitor to know what is around and available depending on where they are.
Those of us who live here, often think about our area as being small neighborhoods. If we are going to spending a beautiful sunny afternoon shopping the adorable shops of Franklin, we might as well take a quick drive and hit brewery Unadilla or a cidery in Sidney. If we are going to check out a concert in Hancock, seems like a great time to stop by Deposit and East Branch which are in the vicinity. In order to better help you navigate your way around when visiting, we are producing a “neighborhood” guide that will let you know what towns are close to each other, what attractions are easy to get to when you are here.
The towns, villages, hamlets of this county are all worth a visit. We hope you will find this guide helpful in exploring all the areas when you plan your next getaway to the Great Western Catskills.
