The Western Catskills are the place to be when the mercury rises. Perched along the Delaware River, this hamlet of some 269 residents is an excellent headquarters for tubing, kayaking, and canoeing on the river. Half-day and full-day excursions with Lander’s River Trips are a perfect summertime choice. Just make sure to stop by Narrowsburg Proper general store for snacks and sundries before your outing. Head to The Laundrette, The Heron, and the Cochecton Fire Station to refuel at the end of the day. And finally, for your accommodations, head across the river to Pennsylvania and book a stay at the Hotel Darby.
