We're already written about where to find fireworks on this Fourth of July in the Catskills. But there’s lots of other things going on across the region as well. Here are a few of our favorites, county by county.

Steep slopes and restless streams make the Catskill Mountains rich waterfall territory. Here are 10 falls worth visiting, winnowed down from the dozens and dozens to be found in the region. Some are a cool reward at the end of a rugged hike, while others plunge just a few yards from the road.

While most waterfalls in the Catskills are located in the high escarpment in the east part of Greene County, there are cascades, plunges and cataracts in each of the counties that make up the region -- Delaware, Greene, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster. All five counties are represented on this list, so there's a waterfall here close to you.   Read more

From your first approach to this compelling property you know you are entering a unique and special place. Driving past the gated entrance, down a long, wooded, winding drive the view opens to a pristine 10 acre private lake and to the lakeside home. The approach is nothing short of magical!

Rarely does a property come along with so many sought after elements, in a truly one of a kind setting. The property is a wonderful mix of open fields & forest, with a gleaming private lake that sits in the middle of the property - your own private lake, Jones Lake. The lake is a wonderful place to canoe, fish, swim, have lakeside barbecues or to watch wildlife. Owning Jones Lake gives new meaning to “keeping up with the Joneses”. Stocked with several varieties of fish - caste your line and catch your dinner! Take in the sunsets reflecting off the shimmering water in the fading light!  Read more
