Thanks to its short distance from New York City, the Catskills have long been a tourism hotspot. And until recently—with towns like Woodstock, Phoenicia, and Tannersville considered some of the more popular destinations—it was the Eastern Catskills that received most of the glory.

Nothing says autumn quite like a big, round, fresh-picked pumpkin.

Whether you're looking for epic jack-o-lantern material or you're secretly there for the corn maze and the cider donuts, there's going to be a pumpkin patch you'll love in this state.
