1. Windham, NYGet More Info
Why go: Upstate New York can feel like an oasis compared to summer in the city or on crowded Hamptons beaches. Escape to the Catskills, just two and a half hours north of Manhattan (you might recognize it as the setting for Dirty Dancing). But the region was recently named one of Lonely Planet’s Best Travel Destinations for 2019, thanks to the wealth of fly-fishing and hiking opportunities, as well as plenty of craft breweries and farm-to-table restaurants.
Where to stay: Eastwind Hotel & Bar used to be a bunk house for hunters, fishermen, and other outdoor enthusiasts back in the 1920s. Now, it’s a chic getaway for New Yorkers. Stay in one of the three wooden A-frame structures called Lushnas for an upscale glamping experience, or opt for one of the other 16 rooms. Getting there is easy: LINE by Trailways offers direct luxury bus service from Manhattan to Eastwind’s front door.
