The Catskill Mountains, also known as the Catskills, are a physiographic province of the larger Appalachian Mountains, located in southeastern New York. As a cultural and geographic region, the Catskills are generally defined as those areas close to or within the borders of the Catskill Park, a ,acre (2,&#;km2) forest preserve forever protected from many forms of development under New York state law.

Geologically, the Catskills are a mature dissected plateau, a flat region subsequently uplifted and eroded into sharp relief by watercourses. The Catskills form the northeastern end of the Allegheny Plateau (also known as the Appalachian Plateau).[1][2]

The Catskills were named by early Dutch settlers. They are well known in American society as the setting for films and works of art, including many 19th-century Hudson River School paintings, as well as for being a favored destination for vacationers from New York City in the midth century. The region's many large resorts gave countless young stand-up comedians an opportunity to hone their craft. Since the late 19th century, the Catskills have been a haven for artists, musicians and writers, especially in and around the towns of Woodstock and Phoenicia.

History[edit]

Main article: History of the Catskill Mountains

Etymology[edit]

Views of the Catskills from the Hudsonlike this led to the name "Blue Mountains" for a time.
A revision of a map of New Netherlandshowing the locations of the "Lands of the Kats Kills" and the "High Lands of the Esopus"

Nicolaes Visscher I's map of New Netherland located the Landt van Kats Kill at the mouth of Catskill Creek. The region to the south is identified as Hooge Landt van Esopus (High Lands of the Esopus), a reference to a local band of northern LenapeNative Americans who inhabited the banks of the Hudson and hunted in the highlands along the Esopus Creek.[3]

While the meaning of the name ("cat creek [kill]" in Dutch) and the namer (early Dutch explorers) are settled matters, how and why the area is named "Catskills" is a mystery. Mountain lions (catamounts) were known to have been in the area when the Dutch arrived in the 17th century and may have been a reason for the name.[4]

The confusion over the origins of the name led over the years to variant spellings such as Kaatskill and Kaaterskill, both of which are also still used: the former in the regional magazine Kaatskill Life, the latter as the name of a mountain peak and a waterfall. The supposed Native American name for the range, Onteora ("land in the sky"), was actually created by a white man in the midth century to drum up business for a resort.[citation needed] It, too, persists today as the name of a school district and as the name of a Boy Scout summer camp (Onteora Scout Reservation).

Geography[edit]

The Catskill Mountains are approximately miles (&#;km) north-northwest of New York City and 40 miles (64&#;km) southwest of Albany, starting west of the Hudson River. The Catskills occupy much of two counties (Greene and Ulster), and extend slightly into Delaware, Sullivan, and southwestern Schoharie counties.

At the range's eastern end, the mountains begin dramatically with the Catskill Escarpment rising up suddenly from the Hudson Valley. The western boundary is far less certain, as the mountains gradually decline in height and grade into the rest of the Allegheny Plateau, but maps from the 18th and 19th centuries consistently mark the border of the Catskill Mountains as the East Branch of the Delaware River, which is consistent with the actual topographic relief.[5] The Pocono Mountains, to the immediate southwest in Pennsylvania, are also a part of the Allegheny Plateau.

The Catskills contain more than 30 peaks above 3, feet (1,&#;m) and parts of six important rivers. The Catskill Mountain Club is an organization whose members have climbed all the peaks in the Catskills over 3, feet (1,&#;m). The highest mountain, Slide Mountain in Ulster County, has an elevation of 4, feet (1,&#;m).

Climatically, the Catskills lie within the Allegheny Highlands forestsecoregion.

Climate[edit]

According to the Köppen climate classification system, the Catskill Mountains have two climate zones. The vast majority of the Catskills have a warm summer humid continental climate (Dfb) with some isolated locations in valleys with hot summer humid continental climate (Dfa). The plant hardiness zone on Slide Mountain at 4, feet (1,&#;m) is 5a with an average annual extreme minimum temperature of −&#;°F (−&#;°C). The plant hardiness zone in Margaretville at 1, feet (&#;m) is 5b with an average annual extreme minimum temperature of −&#;°F (−&#;°C).[6]

Geology[edit]

Kaaterskill Fallson Spruce Creek near Palenville, New York. One of the higher falls in New York. Two separate falls total &#;ft (79&#;m).

Although the Catskills are sometimes compared with the Adirondack Mountains farther north, the two mountain ranges are not geologically related, as the Adirondacks are a continuation of the Canadian Shield. Similarly, the Shawangunk Ridge, which forms the southeastern edge of the Catskills, is part of the geologically distinct Ridge-and-Valley province and is a continuation of the same ridge known as Kittatinny Mountain in New Jersey and Blue Mountain in Pennsylvania.

The Catskill Mountains are more of a dissected plateau[8] than a series of mountain ranges. The sediments that make up the rocks in the Catskills were deposited when the ancient Acadian Mountains in the east were rising and subsequently eroding. The sediments traveled westward and formed a great delta into the sea that was in the area at that time. The escarpment of the Catskill Mountains is near the former (landward) edge of this delta, as the sediments deposited in the northeastern areas along the escarpment were deposited above sea level by moving rivers, and the Acadian Mountains were located roughly where the Taconic Mountains are located today (though significantly larger). Finer sediment was deposited further westward, and thus the rocks change from gravel conglomerates to sandstone and shale. Further west, these fresh water deposits intermingle with shallow marine sandstone and shale until the end, in deeper water limestone.

The uplift and erosion of the Acadian Mountains was occurring during the Devonian[9] and early Mississippian period ( to &#;million years ago). Over that time, thousands of feet of these sediments built up, slowly moving the Devonian seashore further west. A meteor impact occurred in the shallow sea approximately mya, creating a 10&#;km (6&#;mi) diameter crater. This crater eventually filled with sediments and became Panther Mountain through the process of uplift and erosion. By the middle of the Mississippian period, the uplift stopped, and the Acadian Mountains had been eroded so much that sediments no longer flowed across the Catskill Delta.

Over time, the sediments were buried by more sediments from other areas, until the original Devonian and Mississippian sediments were deeply buried and slowly became solid rock. Then the entire area experienced uplift, which caused the sedimentary rocks to begin to erode. Today, those upper sedimentary rocks have been completely removed, exposing the Devonian and Mississippian rocks. Today's Catskills are a result of the continued erosion of these rocks, both by streams and, in the recent past, by glaciers.

In successive ice ages, both valley and continental glaciers have widened the valleys and the notches of the Catskills and rounded the mountains. Grooves and scratches in exposed bedrock provide evidence of the great sheets of ice that once traversed the region. Even today the erosion of the mountains continues, with the region's rivers and streams deepening and widening the mountains' valleys and cloves.

Recreation[edit]

Aquatic sports and recreation[edit]

Esopus Creek is a mile (&#;km) tributary of the Hudson River, starting at Winnisook Lake on Slide Mountain. It flows across Ulster County to the Hudson River at Saugerties. The Esopus is noted for making an almost degree turn around Panther Mountain, following a buried 6-mile (10&#;km) impact crater rim. It is famous for tubing, a sport of rafting down a river in an inner tube. Many tubers begin their trip at Phoenicia, New York, and head down the creek towards the Ashokan Reservoir at Olive, New York.

The Ashokan Reservoir is part of the New York City water supply system, with fishing allowed under permit, but swimming and most other recreational uses are forbidden.

River canoeing and kayaking are popular. There are 42 rapids ranging from class I to V+.[10]

The Esopus Creek is famous for its fly fishing, although in recent years[when?] it has been plagued by invasive plants.[11]

Cycling[edit]

Road and mountain bicycling are fairly popular in the range. Bicycle racing includes the Tour of the Catskills, a three-day road stage race held in Green and Ulster counties each summer,[12] and the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in Windham.[13] Other cycling resources include the Catskill Scenic Trail, the Headwaters Trails in Stamford and the Roundtopia trail network (mapped by the Round Top Mountain Bike Association).[14] Several ski centers provide downhill mountain bicycling in the warmer months.

Hiking and camping[edit]

Within the range is the Catskill Park, comprising over , acres (,&#;ha). Catskill Park is part of New York's Forest Preserve. Not all the land is publicly owned; about 60% remains in private hands, but new sections are added frequently. Most of the park and the preserve are within Ulster County, with a significant portion in Greene County, and parts in Sullivan and Delaware counties as well. Many of the trails in public areas are maintained and updated by the New York–New Jersey Trail Conference and the Catskill Mountain Club.

Devil's Path is one of the many trails open for hikers. Spots to camp in the Catskills include Bear Spring Mountain, Little Pond, Mongaup Pond, and North-South Lake.[15]

Skiing[edit]

There are five main downhill ski and snowboard areas in the Catskills: Belleayre Mountain (run by the Olympic Regional Development Authority); Hunter Mountain (the first ski area to install snowmaking machines in New York); Windham Mountain; Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun in Monticello; and Plattekill Mountain in Roxbury.

Joppenbergh Mountain, in Rosendale Village hosted its first ski jumping competition in Ski jumping was continued on the mountain until February 7, , when the last competition was held.

The Mountain Trails Cross Country Ski Center in Tannersville has 22 miles (35&#;km) of trails.

Structures[edit]

Fire towers[edit]

The Catskill Mountains fire towers were constructed to facilitate forest fire prevention and control. Twenty-three fire towers were built in the Catskill Mountains between and The fire towers fell out of use by the s as fire spotting from airplanes had become more effective and efficient, so the fire towers were decommissioned; the Hunter Mountain Fire Tower was the last to be taken out of service in All but six of the towers were dismantled. The five remaining towers have been renovated and opened to the public as observation posts with panoramic views. The remaining towers are:

  • Balsam Lake Mountain Fire Observation Station near Hardenburgh, elevation 3,&#;ft (1,&#;m)
  • Hunter Mountain Fire Tower near Hunter, elevation 4,&#;ft (1,&#;m)
  • Mt. Utsayantha Fire Tower Stamford, New York, elevation 3,&#;ft (&#;m)
  • Overlook Mountain Tower near Woodstock, elevation 3,&#;ft (&#;m)
  • Red Hill Fire Tower near Denning, elevation 2,&#;ft (&#;m)
  • Tremper Mountain Fire Tower near Shandaken, elevation 2,&#;ft (&#;m)

Notable landmarks[edit]

The Catskill Mountain House, built in , was a hotel near Palenville, New York, in the Catskill Mountains overlooking the Hudson River Valley. In its prime at the turn of the century, visitors included United States PresidentsUlysses S. Grant, Chester A. Arthur and Theodore Roosevelt.

Transportation[edit]

From , the northern part of the Catskills were served by the Catskill Mountain Branch of the Ulster and Delaware Railroad which was absorbed into the New York Central railroad in Oneonta to Kingston passenger rail service continued until Part of the line still exists but now serves only freight.

The southern part of the Catskills was served by the New York, Ontario and Western Railway. Over the course of , service on the NYO&W downscaled to summer only. In its last years it ran trains from Roscoe to Weehawken, New Jersey, via Liberty. It connected with the New York Central's West Shore Railroad at Cornwall.[16][17] This service lasted until September 10, [18]

The Delaware and Ulster Railroad is a heritage railroad, based in Arkville, New York, that still runs a scenic part of the track from Highmount to Hubbell Corners, New York, for tourist use. The Catskill Mountain Railroad is also a heritage railroad in the Catskills, operating from Kingston up to Highmount.

The Catskills are accessible by automobile from the east along Interstate 87/New York State Thruway, which runs north–south through the Hudson Valley. To the south and southwest, the Catskills are accessible by a variety of highways, including New York State Route 55, U.S. Route 44, U.S. Route , and New York State Route Access to the western Catskills is provided by New York State Route 30; and the vaguely defined far-western edge of the region is variously considered to be New York State Route 10 or Interstate 88, though this boundary remains a matter of local preference. New York State Routes 28 and 23A cut east–west through the heart of the Catskills, serving many of the most popular outdoor tourist destinations. New York State Route 23 runs east–west across the Catskills' northern section.

The closest major airports to the Catskill region are Albany International Airport to the north and Stewart International Airport in Newburgh to the south. Smaller airports in the region include:

In popular culture[edit]

The Hudson Valley Film Commission maintains a list of films set in the Hudson Valley / Catskills Region.[19] Of them, more than three dozen films are set in the Catskills. Author/illustrator Jonathan Schork, born and raised in Olivebridge in the southern Catskills, acknowledges the area as the inspiration for two of his children's books: 's The Love of Simon Fox, and 's More Tales from the Enchanted Wood (the latter the recipient of several prizes for children's literature).[20] The town of Bethel, New York, located in the Catskills, was home to the famous Woodstock music festival that took place August 15–18, The event, wherein 32 music acts performed in front of over , concert-goers, was captured in the documentary movie Woodstock (). The site is now home to the world-renowned Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.

The many hotels and vacation resorts located in the Catskills are notable in American cultural history for their role in the development of modern stand-up comedy. Comedians such as Rodney Dangerfield, Jackie Mason, Alan King, and Don Rickles all got their start performing in Catskill hotel venues colloquially referred to as the Borscht Belt.[21]

The Creepiest Place to Visit in Every State

For many, Halloween isn’t an event. It’s a state of mind. And it isn’t a day. It’s a month-long dive into the joys of being creeped out. Sure, this year’s circumstances mean you’ll have fewer opportunities to visit highly produced haunted houses or throw a raucous Halloween party, but that doesn’t mean Halloween is canceled. You just have to know where to look.

Every state has its own urban legends and places where only the brave tread. We're talking old mental hospitals, valleys filled by ghosts, cemeteries, historic hotels—no matter what scares you, your state has a place to freak you out. And because ghosts never get a day off, you can hit most of these places even now, whether it’s for a guided tour or a bone-chilling solo walk into the darkness. Here’s where you can go to truly embrace the Halloween spirit this year and remain safe. No costumes required.

Alabama

Maple Hill Cemetery
Huntsville
Oh, sure, the actual cemetery here is creepy and all, but it's the playground that'll really get you. In , somebody decided to open a playground adjacent to Huntsville's oldest cemetery, presumably to give the children of mourning parents some respite. Instead, it appears that the resident ghosts are the ones enjoying it most: people report seeing orbs of light going down the slide and unoccupied swings moving, accompanied by disembodied giggles. Adding to the eeriness, some locals believe the victims of a rash of child murders in the '60s were buried nearby, their spirits now having eternal playdates with the cemetery's official residents. —Andy Kryza

Alaska

The Alaskan Hotel
Juneau
The most famous ghost to roam the halls of Alaska's oldest-operating hotel is that of a gold miner’s wife who lived here while waiting for her husband to return. When he didn’t, she began supporting herself by working as a prostitute until he did return. Not exactly thrilled with her new career choice, he killed her, and now guests and staff regularly report encounters (no, not like that) with her ghost. —Matt Meltzer

Arizona

Jerome Grand Hotel
Jerome, Arizona
Located in the scenic hillside town of Jerome—a former gold mining hub once known as the Wickedest City in the West, and today, one of Arizona’s coolest small towns—is the Jerome Grand Hotel, formerly known as the United Verde Hospital. Originally built in (and again in after a mine explosion destroyed the first), the Great Depression caused the hospital to take a serious downturn; by , it had been abandoned entirely. The hospital sat essentially dormant until it reopened as the Jerome Grand in Much of the building’s original structure and facilities have been restored, and many of its spirits still linger: the specter of a maintenance man found dead in the basement in the 30s; human-shaped figures that roam the hall; children who run and laugh in the corridors; and even the spirit of a cat who scratches at guests’ door at night, begging to be let in.

Arkansas

The Arlington Hotel
Hot Springs
This grand, century-old hotel is a paragon of ornate luxury, so much so that you'd probably choose to stay a while if you were a ghost, too. History weighs on the place, as well as on your mind: four presidents have stayed here, plus Babe Ruth and Al Capone. Outside, the old-timey lamplights guide your walk through the Downtown spring-fed spas that draw visitors to this resort town. Echoing against stone buildings and set against a backdrop of steep, inky forest, even the burbling fountains sound ghostly and ominous. —Sam Eifling

California

Turnbull Canyon
Whittier
California’s packed with terrifying places, from cult compounds to famous murder sites, haunted hotels, and mysterious mansions. But none of them come with the promise of a brisk, scenic hike. Turnbull Canyon offers a 4-mile hike through the sprawling Puente Hills. Keep an eye out for sweeping city views and the ghosts of 29 people who perished here in a plane crash in the '50s. Oh, and the ghosts of children who, according to (uncorroborated) legend, were taken from a nearby orphanage and used in ritualistic sacrifices. Oh, and the ghost of the teen who found some old electroshock equipment from the canyon's burnt-down asylum and fried his brain despite the site having no power. Wait, burned down asylum? UFO sightings?!? Rumors of multiple cults? No wonder the natives called it “Hutukngna,” or the place of the Devil. So yeah, enjoy that hike. We're sure it'll be brisker than you expected. —AK

Colorado

The Stanley Hotel
Estes Park
If you’ve read or seen The Shining, you’ll know the feel of this often snowed-on hotel: It’s the location Stephen King based his Overlook Hotel upon. It may not look like the film—unless you watched the s made-for-TV movie version, which was actually shot here—but it holds are rumors of haunted rooms and service workers who still wander the grounds. Be warned: There's a much more sinister danger. The hotel has such an extreme elevation that just walking to your room can drain you, so one stiff drink may have you seeing ghosts. —Brock Wilbur

Connecticut

House
Woodbury
Known as the Evergreen Inn and later the Curtis House Inn before reopening as the House in , Gordon Ramsay once featured Connecticut’s oldest inn on his appropriately-titled reality show Hotel Hell, bringing a paranormal investigator to corroborate what locals and visitors have been claiming for centuries: the joint’s haunted. Ramsay’s unsettling difficulty exiting his room during a five-day stay could have been due to faulty hardware, but try telling that to the guests who’ve reported disembodied voices, mysterious footsteps, and unwelcome otherworldly bedfellows throughout the inn’s plus year history. Apparent entities are believed to be the former inn owners, guests, and—perhaps most terrifying for anyone who works there—former employees who clocked in, but never clocked out. —Amber Sutherland-Namako

Thrillist TV

Delaware

Fort Delaware
Delaware City
Civil War prisons were particularly unpleasant places to be incarcerated back in the s, what with the rampant gangrene, amputations, and war-induced psychosis. The spirits of the beleaguered Confederate soldiers interned at this former Union prison are said to haunt the imposing granite-and-brick behemoth, which sits a short ferry ride from Delaware City on Pea Patch Island. During October weekends, you can take an immersive five-hour tour of the fort, where you’ll use ghost-sensing equipment to search for paranormal activity. Tickets are $ —MM

Florida

Fort East Martello Museum
Key West
Key West's Fort East Martello Museum is home to the OG macabre Florida Man, Robert the Haunted Doll. The inspiration for Annabelle, Robert was a gift given to the late artist Robert Eugene Otto. As a boy, Otto would blame the doll for all sorts of mischief, but the whole thing morphed from a cute little Calvin & Hobbes riff into something far more sinister. Some say the raggedy, weathered little sailor doll is cursed. He's reported to change facial expressions from time to time, and some say he'll let out little giggles. Oh, and some say he'll cause endless pain and suffering to people who disrespect him by taking his photo—which sucks because he's, you know, the centerpiece of a goddamn museum. —AK

Georgia

Oakland Cemetery
Atlanta
Built in , Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery—the city’s oldest, largest cemetery, and among the most haunted places in Georgia—is home to Maynard Jackson, Bobby Jones, and Margaret Mitchell, among many others. The cemetery includes a Confederate branch where visitors insist they’ve seen uniformed soldiers wandering the grounds and even hanging off of trees. Creep in as far as you dare, but be warned: Some have alleged that they’ve heard Confederate Army roll call among the tombstones and sworn that their name was called amid the list. —Amy Schulman

Hawaii

Waipi'o Valley
Big Island
Hawaii is home to fiery luaus where island dancers welcome you with pounding drums, native chants, and blazing torches All of which are awesome when those dancers are actually alive. Not so awesome when they’re ghosts of ancient warriors marching through the islands armed to the teeth. But those are the night marchers, legendary spirits who roam the islands in an eternal march to battle. Most longtime locals have stories about encountering them, mostly in specific spots spread throughout the islands. The creepiest is the Waipi'o Valley on the northern shore of Hawaii: Though the park has some of the most scenic lookouts in the state, the pounding beats and chants of the night marchers echo especially loudly through the valley when the night marchers decide to join you for a hike.—MM

Idaho

Old Idaho Penitentiary 
This prison, built in , was closed for nearly 50 years. Today it’s a full-stop tourist attraction, not unlike Alcatraz; you can tour the place, see where prisoners were held in solitary, and even get a peek at the gallows from death row. So, yeah, this place is haunted AF, largely by the prisoners who helped build it and ended their life sentences in the very walls they erected. Visitors report voices, a feeling of heaviness, and seeing apparitions, both with their eyes and in photos. With respect to the World's Largest Potato, you can’t get that kind of experience with other Idaho tourist attractions. —AK

Illinois

Old Joliet Prison
You know that feeling you get when you find out the previous renter of an apartment was kind of a creep? This gothic, castle-like prison complex was once the (involuntary) home of notorious murder clown John Wayne Gacy and serial killer Richard Speck. There were riots and slayings, executions and other maladies that made this place midwestern Oz between and , when it closed and sat abandoned for nearly nearly two decades. It’s now re-open for tours (paranormal or otherwise), and sometimes hosts events like movie screenings (Blues Brothers was famously filmed here). Even without the hauntings, this place would be top-tier creepy. Throw in potential serial-killer specters and you’ve got a recipe for nightmares. —AK

Indiana

The Haunted Bridge
Avon
Indiana is packed with enough haunted inns and estates to pack a whole town, but for a little skin-crawling outside a big city, head to the sleepy bedroom community of Avon, home to one of the nation’s creepiest-looking haunted bridges. The decrepit-looking concrete railroad span looks as old as the pyramids, and sports an undeniably sinister air—especially if you drive beneath it at night. If you care to park and poke around, locals say you might encounter the ghost of a weeping woman whose child was killed on the railroad tracks, or a drunken worker who fell into a load of wet construction concrete and was entombed in the bridge itself. But even if you’re just driving through, you’re likely to get chills. —AK

Iowa

Villisca Ax Murder House
Villisca
For a truly one-of-a-kind night away, book in at the Villisca Ax Murder House, the aptly named home where eight people were ax-murdered in their sleep back in The case is still unsolved, but the main suspect was a traveling minister who had taught at a nearby church that night and left town early next morning. Tours and overnight stays are offered in the very rooms that were the scene of a bloody massacre—you’ll probably get the best sleep of your life, right? —AS

Kansas

Stull Cemetery
Stull
Locals know this tiny cemetery in an unincorporated Kansas township as a portal to Hell that the devil comes through twice a year. As outlandish as that sounds, the ruins of a nearby church and the bizarre architecture will have you half-believing the rumors. No Satanic sightings have been confirmed, and anyone caught trespassing in the private cemetery can face a $1, fine. But that only makes it a more appealing dare for the jumpy teens and courageous stoners looking to make the trip. Twice, in my case. —BW

Kentucky

Sauerkraut Cave
Louisville
Sure, it got its name because it was once used as to age sauerkraut, but there's something far more sinister fermenting here. Sauerkraut Cave earned its legend because it was located beneath the Lakeland Asylum for the Insane, an institution marred by accusations of overcrowding and mistreatment of patients. The cave beneath the now-razed asylum is believed to have been an occasional escape route for inmates, but there are also rumors of bodies being buried there. Strange visions and ghostly voices have been reported by many who have explored it; find it behind the archery range in E.P. “Tom” Sawyer Park. Guided tours are offered, but you can use your own judgment. —Kevin Gibson

Louisiana

St. Roch Chapel, Yellow Fever Shrine
New Orleans
In the 19th century, yellow fever swept New Orleans, but Reverend Peter Thevis, the pastor of the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, had a plan. He prayed to St. Roch (who is most identified with good health and healing), asking for members of his parish to be shielded from the disease and promising to build a shrine for the saint in gratitude. While 40, New Orleanians died, no one in Father Thevis’ community perished. Today, pilgrims still visit the St. Roch Chapel, leaving offerings around the shrine. Among the artifacts: children’s polio braces, crutches, rows of prosthetic legs, plaster feet, false teeth, and fake eyeballs. —AS

Maine

Mount Hope Cemetery
Bangor
You know who grew up in Maine? Stephen King. So it's no surprise, really, that part of the Pet Sematary adaptation was shot here. For extra scares, watch the movie before a nighttime stroll through this creepy year-old cemetery and see if you can find the spot where Gage was buried. On the way, you’ll see some of the first Civil War monuments ever constructed, and grave markers that date back to If you’re not skeeved enough, Bangor is also the location of King’s house, fronted by wrought iron gates decorated with bats. Both are part of several Stephen King tours, which take you to sites around Bangor that inspired his novels. —MM

Maryland

Coffin Rock
Near Burkittsville
The Blair Witch Project still pulls tourists to Burkittsville, Maryland. To find where most of the film was shot, though, you need to head into Black Hills Forest about 20 minutes west of town to find Coffin Rock. It’s a large flat rock near a creek in the middle of the woods. It’s where a Maryland search party went missing in while looking for 8-year-old Robin Weaver. The kid eventually returned to town; the search party did not. A second search party found disemboweled bodies, bound at the hands and feet, on Coffin Rock. Those bodies later vanished when the search party returned with backup help. Local legend attributes all of this to the so-called Blair Witch. You can, of course, retrace those steps in history … just bring a flashlight and a good pair of running shoes. —Tim Ebner

Massachusetts

Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast
Fall River
In case you don't remember the world's most disturbing nursery rhyme, Lizzie Borden hacked up her parents with an axe back in And now, you can sleep at the delightful B&B/infamous crime scene where it all happened. On your visit, you'll sleep at the Bordens’ home, eat their last meal (Johnnycakes and eggs), and sleep in the bedroom where the body of Lizzie’s stepmother  was found. After a stay there, I can attest: This home painstakingly furnished to look exactly as it did on the morning of the murders will creep you right out. Daytime tours accommodate lame-o wusses. Better, though, the year-old property hosts up to 20 overnight guests, one of whom will invariably pull out the house ouija board after the evening guide departs and try to contact Lizzie. I did not sleep a wink. —Camille Dodero

Michigan

South Manitou Island
Leland
16 miles offshore from Lake Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula, South Manitou is home to foot sand dunes, deserted shoreline, and empty campgrounds. And with respect to the abandoned buildings of Detroit and Flint, it’s about as creepy as you can get in Michigan. One legend suggests that a ship of cholera-stricken passengers stopped at the island, and sailors buried them in a mass grave while some were still alive. If that alone doesn’t stir you to set sail to the island, there are two cemeteries, a cedar forest where unbodied voices are often heard, and off the coast is the shipwreck of the SS Francisco Morazan, where a young boy is rumored to have died after an attempt at exploring it on his own. Fair warning to all who seek refuge. —AS

Minnesota

Wabasha Street Caves
St. Paul
Our favorite Minnesota haunt, Forepaugh's Restaurant, recently closed. Luckily, Minnesota is home to as many haunts as it is lakes. One of the creepiest, and most accessible, is Wabasha Street Caves. This is one of the liveliest places on the list, an underground speakeasy from the '30s that still hosts weddings and parties so good that the original folks never seem to have left. That apparently includes the ghosts of three gangsters who, in the caves' bootlegging days, skipped out on their check by getting murdered and buried in the floors. To this day, people report seeing uninvited, very dapper guests roaming the halls, along with the ghost of a bartender and a madame. —AK

Mississippi

University of Mississippi Medical Center
Jackson
This gothic-ass state loves scary legends—the devil roaming Delta crossroads, ghosts haunting the mansions in Natchez—but a very real site of horror resides here in Jackson. Back in , construction workers beginning a parking lot came across a mass grave of about 7, former Mississippi State Lunatic Asylum residents from the turn of the 20th century. The asylum closed more than 80 years ago, but it wasn’t uncommon in those days to inter deceased patients together in unmarked graves. Estimating that the cost for outside contractors to remove and rebury the remains would cost an extra $21 million or so, officials decided to let them rest in peace until they can exhume the bodies through university channels and build a historical center where the parking lot would have stood. Until then, it’s one hell of a spooky place to pay your respects to the anonymous thousands of dead. —Andrew Paul

Missouri

Main Street
St. Charles
This multicolored main drag looks like the perfect setting for a Midwestern horror movie: charming, peaceful Main Street USA that’s actually haunted by dozens of roaming spirits. The legend dates to when the old Borromeo Cemetery was moved and a number of the graves they dug up had no bodies in them. Those spirits are rumored to haunt the shops at South Main Street, where objects vanish inexplicably and mysterious cooking smells emerge—as does, apparently, a deep French-speaking voice. The town is also home to a haunted community college, a haunted high school, and a haunted forest. —MM

Montana

The Fairweather Inn
Virginia City
If you’ve ever been borderline homicidal because the kids in the next hotel room won’t shut the hell up, steer clear of the Fairweather Inn. The lone hotel in this former gold-mining town is said to be haunted by the ghosts of children who get into all manner of shenanigans. They move your luggage, turn the lights on and off, and generally annoy the bejeezus out of you. The city’s now-closed Bonanza Inn was also said to be haunted—by the ghost of an old nun, who was presumably better-behaved. —MM

Nebraska

Seven Sisters Road
Otoe County
We all get mad at our family members. Most of us get over it and just get them crappy Christmas presents. We do NOT, however, take all seven of our daughters out to separate hills and kill them, as one deranged Nebraska man did over a century ago. The road that runs between the site of each gruesome crime is marked as County Road L on the map, but colloquially it’s named after the sisters who died there. Cars driving through routinely report headlights going dim, or electrical systems failing completely, leaving their cars stalled in the eerie darkness, with the screams of young women echoing through the hills. —MM

Nevada

The Clown Motel
Tonopah
Long a destination for people who can’t say no to a dare, this old-school motel is home to a collection of 2, clown figures and some seriously ghostly vibes (owner Hame Anand told us he’s seen ghosts, but most of them are friendly). That’ll happen when you park a decades-old motel next to a dilapidated cemetery in a small town dotted with mining ruins. But hey, there’s a bonus: When Anand bought the motel a couple years ago, he did some renovations to make the rooms more comfortable, so at least you’ll be wetting a very comfortable bed. He also embraced the scariness by converting some rooms into horror themes, in case “clown motel in the middle of the desert” wasn’t creepy enough. —AK

New Hampshire

Mount Washington Hotel
Bretton Woods
The tale of Carolyn Stickney sounds like the worst Disney princess story ever: she married the hotel's founder, who died right before construction was completed. She then remarried into European royalty, but alas, she too passed soon after. She never checked out of Mount Washington, though; she appears in people’s photos as a hazy apparition, floats around the hallways, and is a regular fixture in room , apparently her favorite place to challenge the notion of 5-star accommodations. The four-poster bed she slept in remains in the room, where you can still hear her voice, some say —AK

New Jersey

The Devil’s Tree
Mountain Road, Basking Ridge
Out of context, the tree’s silhouette alone is enough to inspire nightmares: a warped, half-dead oak looming in the middle of a lonely field, with dozens of ax marks lining its trunk. Then there’s the gruesome history. A purported meeting place for the KKK, notorious suicide site, and rumored gateway to the depths of hell, the Devil’s Tree is infamous among locals and has evolved into a chilling tourist attraction. Legend has it, anyone who harms the tree will suffer swift and violent retribution—so naturally, it has become a tradition for ballsy teens across the Garden State to pee on its trunk. But do so at your own risk—you might just lose your life (or your manhood) to the tree's sinister curse. Also, that's just unsanitary. —AS-N

New Mexico

Dawson Cemetery
Cimarron-ish
Ghost towns are a dime a dozen. But Dawson? Dawson's different. Once a boom town with a wealth of coal, things took a turn in when an explosion killed or so mine workers. Dawson forged on for 10 more years, when another accident claimed workers. Today, all that's left is a cemetery, which of course is considered one of the most haunted places in America. Many report seeing eerie lights—you know, the kind you'd see on the front of mining helmets—floating around the gravestones, with others see dirty specters with very outdated clothing roaming about. —AK

New York

United States Military Academy
West Point
If the Tudor-style architecture and all-around dismal creepiness of this campus don't give you the heebie-jeebies, then the school’s reported ghost sightings will. Back in , cadets claimed to have seen a ghost in an antiquated school uniform, roaming around Room —a room no longer in use. Other ghost stories have made their way into the school’s colloquial chatter, most notably the ghost of former superintendent Colonel Thayer’s Irish maid, Molly, who haunts the basement of Quarters , tousling the bedcovers in an otherwise orderly room, and borrowing and moving guests’ possessions. —AS

North Carolina

The Biltmore Estate
Asheville
The largest private residence in the entire country is of course housing some ghosties up in those , square feet. The former vacation home of George Washington Vanderbilt II is now considered one of the most haunted places in North Carolina. George himself has been spotted chilling in the library, and his late wife Edith wanders around calling out his name. There’s also a headless orange cat roaming the gardens, echoes of laughter and and splashing water in the empty pool, and disembodied voices heard throughout the rooms. A day pass to visit the grounds starts at $40, with overnight options available. —KP

North Dakota

Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park
Mandan
Normally, this time of year the old fort named after Honest Abe would be teeming with teenagers in costumes, as it’s home to a zombie-filled haunted attraction. That’s canceled this year due to COVID, but don’t worry, nobody told the ghosts. Particularly haunted is the Custer House, once home of the same general who was slain at Little Big Horn. The general’s wife is still said to roam their preserved home in the fort complex in a black dress, slamming doors, and showing up to give people chills. Some believe Custer himself roams the grounds too, though others think that the ghosts in blue are other soldiers who never got mortally discharged from duty. The park is still open, so while you won’t find teenagers in mask, you might just come across a widow still waiting for her husband to come home from battle. —AK

Ohio

Ohio State Reformatory
Mansfield
Ohio has its fair share of creepy shit, but this massive stone castle is basically hell disguised as Hogwarts. The majestically spired campus housed over , inmates over its history from A tour through here on a normal day is grim, but during scare season it transforms into the biggest prison-based haunted attraction in America: Escape From Blood Prison. And yes, it's still happening in The cells and hallways are filled with undead inmates and faucets dripping blood, turning the already creepy reformatory into a bona fide nightmare through November 1, after which it returns into a regular old haunted prison.  —MM

Oklahoma

The Skirvin Hotel
Oklahoma City
Since opening in , the luxurious Skirvin established itself as a place nobody ever wants to leave. Or maybe can’t. This  is a collection of every haunted-hotel story all crammed together. There are the ghosts of the original owner’s mistress and his illegitimate child, who still roam the halls with a stroller. You’ll hear eternally crying babies and slamming doors. You might even find yourself groped in a shower. A while back, the hotel proved too creepy for several LA Lakers in town to play the Thunder, who checked out early and found accommodations with fewer handsy ghosts and eternally wailing children. Book your staycation now! Checkout is… maybe never?

Oregon

Edgefield Hotel
Troutdale
Just outside of Portland in Troutdale, Oregon, the McMenamins company is known just as well for their peculiarities as they are for their catalog of pubs and breweries. That includes their legendary UFO Fest—an annual two-day celebration of all things extraterrestrial—and their historic Edgefield Hotel. The hotel’s spot on 74 acres of farmland just steps from the Columbia River Gorge may distract you—but keep an eye out. Before it was a beloved weekend getaway, it was the Multnomah County Poor Farm, which once included a hospital wing and jail. During the s before the original site fell into disrepair, the farm treated patients with tuberculosis and mental illnesses, some of whom supposedly still roam the grounds of the now-hotel—and a few of whom are allegedly still buried in unmarked graves on-site.

Pennsylvania

Eastern State Penitentiary
Philadelphia
Known locally as ESP (already a creepy touch), this prison originally intended to value reform over punishment. As you can imagine, with an isolated location on 11 acres of land and foot fortress walls, that didn’t exactly work out. Instead, the Eastern State Penitentiary became a real house of horrors and the testing location for a number of "reform" techniques that included paranoia-inducing “panopticon” oversight, now synonymous with a constant threat of surveillance. Reports of shadowy figures, cackling voices, and ghostly guards on patrol have given this joint a reputation as one of the most haunted places in Pennsylvania. And with the mix of wicked pseudoscience, gigantic brutal architecture, and famous inmates like Al Capone and bank robber Willie Sutton, it also serves as a perfect staging ground for nighttime haunted tours. —BW

Rhode Island

White Horse Tavern
Newport
Like many a campfire tale, this one begins with two drifters. They showed up at the tavern in the s looking for a room. The next day, the owners found one dead by the fireplace and the other completely vanished. A specter now chills by the fireplace, daring people to solve his freakish death. There have also been encounters with a colonial-looking dude in the upstairs bathroom, and mysterious footsteps all over the place. —AK

South Carolina

Baynard Plantation Ruins
Union
The South is crawling with ghosts, especially on former plantations—both of slaves, and of the overseers who are rightfully damned to walk the grounds for eternity. But unlike the historically preserved plantations that can be toured throughout the region, the Baynard Plantation is in ruins. The dilapidation itself is enough to get your stomach in knots, even before the creepiest part: Apparently, if you stick around at night, a freaky-ass funeral procession for namesake William Baynard will pass by. Maybe you'll hear it. Maybe you'll see it, or feel it. Either way, this place isn't known for its (living) repeat visitors. —AK

South Dakota

Sica Hollow State Park
Sisseton
It takes a special kind of hubris for the State Parks division to make it a recreational area when the name literally means "bad" or "evil" in the Dakota language. Iron deposits at Sica tint the streams red, but it's not just the blood-colored water that make it so eerie. According to Dakota legend, one winter long ago a stranger named Hand came into the Hollow. He showed no respect for the land and for the traditions of the tribe, who decided to banish him once spring arrived. Hand did not go quietly, and was ultimately destroyed by Thunderer, the messenger of the Great Spirit, whom the Dakota had called upon for help. Though defeated in death, Hand’s evil lingers in the Hollow. People also report hearing drums and seeing figures along the Trail of Spirits therein. So, um, yeah, enjoy the leaf-peeping.  —AK

Tennessee

The Bell Witch Cave
Adams
Every kid in Tennessee grows up scared of the Bell Witch, daring each other at sleepovers to say “I hate the Bell Witch” times in front of the bathroom mirror to summon her malevolent spirit. In the early 19th century, “Kate,” the Bell Witch ghost, tormented the Bell family in Adams, Tennessee, residing in a cave behind their property. Besides pinching, pulling hair, and taunting their visitors with strange sounds, she repeatedly tried to choke patriarch John Bell. For 12 bucks you can tour the spooky cave, which has been placed on the National Historic Register, and according to the tour guides, visitors have felt sensations of being pushed, touched, or held down by a heavyweight. The famous haunting even spooked Andrew Jackson when he visited: "By the Eternal, I saw nothing, but I heard enough to convince me that I'd rather fight the British than to deal with this torment they call the Bell Witch." —Chris Chamberlain

Texas

Yorktown Memorial Hospital
Yorktown (about 75 miles from San Antonio)
Old beds, gurneys, mirrors, chairs, and other medical equipment are still inside this decrepit abandoned hospital, where more than 2, patients died before it shuttered in Today, visitors have described inexplicable apparitions, whispers, shadowy figures in the hallways, wheelchairs rolling unpushed, and a particularly terrifying talking doll in the nursery that asks, “Do you love me?” So um. Go check it out! The owner allows for regular tours and paranormal investigations. —Keller Powell

Utah

Moon Lake
High Uintas
If you go to a place like Utah’s Mountain Meadows massacre site, you shouldn’t be too surprised when you hear the voices the + people slain by a militia in the s: It’s right in the name. But imagine you’ve found a great lakeside campsite in one the Uintas Mountains: A serene patch of mountain bliss in a state loaded with natural beauty. Suddenly, you’re confronted by the a young, dripping, shivering girl with bluish skin looking for help. Then, as you panic, she suddenly disappears. In broad daylight. The Blue Lake ghost appears at all hours to campers, hikers, and fishers. Some people simply hear her wailing in the woods. Others report her running through campsite at night. And many claim to have seen her first hand. Probably not twice, though. This isn’t a site that’s big with repeat visitors. —AK

Vermont

Lake Bomoseen State Park
Castleton
The abandoned town of West Castleton is like Vermont’s answer to the ghost towns of the Old West: Once a big industrial boom town, it's now empty except for a few ghostly residents that refuse to leave, among them a boatman that’s been spotted rowing across the tranquil lake, leaving no ripples in the water en route to a happy hour at a tavern that will never open. These days, that lake is part of a beautiful state park where the ruins of old industrial operations still stand, meaning you can visit it whenever you please. Just maybe don't take any unsolicited boat rides. —AK

Virginia

Bacon’s Castle
Surry
There’s no shortage of spooky and sinister places to visit in Virginia—after all, old battlefields are some of the most haunted grounds anywhere. But if it’s a haunted house you’re after, Bacon’s Castle—built in and the oldest brick home in the country—is it. People have reported encountering disembodied voices and wails, floating heads, books flying off shelves, rockers a’rocking, and unwanted visitors being pushed around. In addition to regular tours, the castle hosts Historic Haunt Nights when you can take a candle-lit ghost hunt. —KP

Washington

Northern State Mental Hospital
Sedro-Woolley
The abandoned remains of this old farm was once home to as many as 2, mental patients. The self-sustaining asylum ran from to and had a lumber mill, a library, a greenhouse, a bakery, canning facilities, and other amenities. Now it’s essentially a ghost town. Remnants of the buildings are said to be haunted by patients who died during trans-orbital lobotomies. Some buildings are still in use and off-limits, but you can view the shells of others and an adjacent cemetery at any time. The isolated compound is a short distance off Highway 20—the perfect spot for a late-night Halloween walkabout. —MM

West Virginia

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum
Weston
Known these days as the Weston State Hospital, this massive gothic asylum housed many of West Virginia’s mentally ill from to Though designed for people, it once held 2, That kind of overcrowding made for some truly miserable souls, many of whom are purported to still haunt the hospital. Paranormal tours of the main building are offered at all hours, including flashlight tours. And masks are require It took more than years, but they finally seem to care about the wellbeing of the asylum's inhabitants. —MM

Wisconsin

The Pfister Hotel
Milwaukee
The Pfister is among of Milwaukee's finest hotels. Yet many visitors—particularly MLB baseball players—are so creeped out that they're willing to sacrifice the luxury if it means they don't have unwanted roommates. So many MLB players have complained about ghostly encounters—strange knocking and pounding noises, TVs turning on and off, their belongings inexplicably moved—that many now refuse to stay there. So in the words of former MLB player Michael Young, "Oh, fuck that place." Of course, you can book yourself a room and hope for apparitions, but if you just want to visit, you won't look odd sipping on a Bloody Mary in the Lobby Lounge. —LM

Wyoming

Wyoming Frontier Prison
Rawlins
Wyoming’s first state penitentiary was about as miserable as you’d expect a stone prison on a cold, whistling prairie to be. It didn’t have hot water until It did have something called the “punishment pole,” to which prisoners were handcuffed, then whipped with rubber hoses. It’s been closed since , but guided tours allow you to get up close and personal with the “death house” (which housed inmates on death row), the gas chamber, and offices left exactly as they were. October is the best time to visit, when the prison hosts midnight tours in the days leading up to Halloween. —MM

More Information on Outer Banks Hotels

For postcard-perfect long weekends, or full week stays that have exceptional access to indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants, and amenities, there's nothing quite like the convenience of a stay at a local Outer Banks hotel or motel. A number of hotels on the Outer Banks have been welcoming guests for decades, and as a result, vacationers have come back year after year for the fantastic service and the mile-high oceanfront or soundfront views.

In recent years, a number of established chain hotels had made a claim on the Outer Banks, attracting guests with their national prestige and host of on-site amenities and concierge services. Still more have become the temporary home for a number of regional and even international conferences, including Outer Banks-wide celebrations like the Taste of the Beach Event or the annual Wedding Expo.

But vacationers who don't need all the fuss and just want a quiet room to retreat to after a full day in the sun will find plenty of options available as well, with small mom and pop establishments that offer incredible beach access, on-site amenities such as community pools, hot tubs, or even mini golf courses, and an accommodating staff that is ingrained with Southern Hospitality.

Intrigued? Review the following Frequently Asked Questions regarding a stay at a local Outer Banks hotel or motel to learn more, or simply call up your favorite local lodgings for more information. For a classic beach vacation that is simply (or exquisitely) Outer Banks, a leisurely stay at a local hotel or motel might be just the ticket.

How do you book an Outer Banks hotel or motel?

With the exception of a few small and well-loved hold outs, the majority of hotels and motels on the Outer Banks have detailed websites with online booking services available for guests' convenience. With just a few clicks, guests can effectively view room photos and locations, area maps, featured amenities, and availability. National chains may not have area-specific websites, but by entering your preferred locale, (namely Outer Banks), and conducting a quick search, internet browsers can easily find beachside accommodations.

Several small inns and motels may not have full-service websites available, but they do have friendly staff on hand virtually all day and evening to answer questions and accept reservations over the phone.

Be prepared to have a credit card handy to secure the reservation, and pay careful attention to the hotel or motel's cancellation policies. While most regions of the country generally accept cancellations up to the day of arrival, many Outer Banks lodgings, due to their coastal locale, may require at least 24 hours advance notice in the event of a cancellation.

Several hotels and motels may also require that summer weekend guests stay for two nights, with a Friday check-in and a Sunday morning departure. However, most Outer Banks vacationers do not find this to be an issue, as a long weekend on the OBX can be a complete breath of fresh air.

When should you book an Outer Banks hotel or motel?

Unlike vacation rentals, campgrounds, and even Bed and Breakfasts, a hotel stay can often be booked just a few weeks from your expected vacation. That said, a number of the premier rooms, (i.e., rooms with the best oceanfront views, or with special amenities such as handicapped friendly facilities), may fill up quickly, so potential guests who are looking for a particular location or feature should call as far in advance as possible. Generally rate changes can potentially occur with the start of the year, but are usually advertised well in advance for the convenience of guests.

In addition, guests that are planning to vacation on popular long weekends, (like Memorial Day, Labor Day, or 4th of July Weekends), or who intend to stay for a full-week, should also consider booking well in advance, to ensure their Outer Banks accommodations.

Winter and shoulder season months, (typically recognized from late September until early May), and mid-week stays do not fill up as fast, and patrons will find plenty of accommodations available in all areas of the Outer Banks within these parameters, regardless of when they book. In fact, day trippers who decide to spend the night will likely spot plenty of "Vacancy" signs during the cooler spring, winter and fall seasons.

Where are the local Outer Banks hotels and motels located?

Virtually every area of the Outer Banks has a collection of hotels and motels to choose from, and potential guests will find everything from small, 1-story family-friendly lodgings to exclusive resorts in most every town.

The hotels found in the northern Outer Banks towns of Duck and Corolla are practically designed with luxury in mind. In these towns, vacationers will find invitingly charming inns, and exquisite resorts that feature fine dining restaurants and popular spas on site. Corolla, especially, is known for luring visitors with affluent tastes, and guests will find several chain hotels as well as regionally renowned resorts that have attracted luxury guests for decades.

For variety and a large number of options, hotel and motel guests should concentrate their search in the central Outer Banks towns of Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk. The Outer Banks' most populated communities also feature the largest number hotels in one concentrated area, and visitors will find a wide selection of oceanfront and beachside accommodations to choose from.

The majority of hotels in these towns are, in fact, located right next to the beach, ensuring fantastic ocean views and step-out-the-door beach access. Accommodations range from small mom and pop motels that have been fixtures on the North Carolina beach scene since the s and s, to large, multiple-story hotels that feature private oceanfront balconies, towering over the ocean waves.

Day trippers who spontaneously decide to spend a night should take a drive down the Beach Road, the original road that ran through the three coastal towns, and currently runs parallel to the US Bypass along the oceanfront. Here, they'll spot a dozen motels and hotels, with available vacancies listed on their roadside marquis.

Manteo, located just off the beach, has a hotel culture all its own. Vacationers may not find any national chains in these parts, however, they will find a variety of motels and hotels that have been serving up fantastic vacations for generations Located both along the main route through Manteo, on US 64, or tucked beside the waterfront near the historic downtown, the Manteo accommodations are renowned for their friendly service, fantastic amenities, and proximity to some of the Outer Banks' most loved attractions, including the Elizabethan Gardens, the North Carolina Aquarium, and the Lost Colony outdoor drama.

Hatteras Island is another Outer Banks locale without any national hotel chains or multi-story structures, and seasoned vacationers couldn't be happier about it. On Hatteras Island, vacationers will find small, established motels and hotels that offer exceptional beach access, stunning waterfront views, and friendly staff that have most likely been manning the front desk for decades.

Buxton Village has the largest concentration of hotels and motels, with many offering direct beach access, ocean views, and lots of local hospitality. Water lovers will also adore the village of Hatteras, at the southern end of the island, as the majority of motels and hotels here feature fantastic harbor front or soundfront views. Several small hotels lie adjacent to the marinas that line up against the Pamlico Sound-bordering harbor, so visiting mariners can pull up their boat, drop anchor, and enjoy a restful night's stay in a comfy, soundfront room.

Even further south, Ocracoke Island features a small collection of hotels and motels as well, scattered throughout the small village, and bordered by 13 miles of undeveloped shoreline and maritime forest.

Accommodations on Ocracoke Village can be found right off the main drag of NC Highway 12 as you enter the town, or bordering the harbor front with Ocracoke's favorite restaurants and marinas as neighbors, or even virtually hidden along small, wooded side streets.

Like Hatteras Island, there are no towering hotels or national chains to be found, however, Ocracoke vacationers will still find plenty of variety in the local hotels and motels available. From small, budget friendly motels that have been in business since the s to gorgeous harbor front accommodations with private balconies and hammocks included with every room, the selection on Ocracoke Island is surprisingly wide and varied.

Unlike other regions, however, Ocracoke accommodations tend to fill up very quickly, particularly on long weekends and during the popular summer weeks. Ocracoke lovers are encouraged not to wait until the last minute, but book their accommodations as soon as possible. The reward will be a relaxing stay in a quaint but charismatic hotel or motel, that's near all the amenities, restaurants, and attractions that Ocracoke has to offer. After all, with only 4 square miles of village to explore, virtually every vacation destination on Ocracoke Island is close to all the "action."

What amenities are available with an Outer Banks hotel or motel?

The amenities available for Outer Banks hotel and motel guests are varied and can include the basics, such as a comfy bed and cable TV, or the elite, such as spa services and a world class breakfast in bed. Basically, with the wide selection of accommodations available, an OBX vacation stay can be as simple or as elite as a vacationer desires.

Many of the hotels and motels on the Outer Banks offer private pools to their guests, and / or direct beach access for a quick, refreshing dip in the ocean. Guests should note that with the exception of hotels that feature indoor pools, the majority of pools are only open from late spring until early or mid-fall, when the water temperatures are refreshing and not too chilly. Obviously, vending machines and snack bars are readily available, and the more elite or strategically located hotels and motels, (like in Hatteras Village or Ocracoke), offer on-site or neighboring restaurants as well, making an evening dinner out a breeze.

The majority of hotels and motels on the Outer Banks also offer kitchenettes, with mini-refrigerators and microwaves for quick, no-frills cooking, and some motels that are accustomed to weeklong vacationers may even feature suites with multiple bedrooms and full kitchens, allowing guests to enjoy relaxing and budget-friendly meals at home. These same establishments may feature community or in-room laundry facilities, community lounge areas, or even game rooms for a little fun out of the sun. Be sure and ask your local accommodations provider what amenities are included or available to ensure an easy, stress-free vacation.

Larger and more prestigious hotels may also offer on-site spas and salons, continental or deluxe breakfasts, or ballroom and meeting facilities for corporate events, weddings or receptions. In fact, for large wedding parties of guests or more, a couple's best bet is to look into accommodations and facilities available the local grand hotels. For special events, these locales usually present the largest spaces available for rent, complete with ample room and accommodations for extensive banquet or music set-up. (Not to mention, the majority of these larger hotels also offer easy proximity to the beach, providing a gorgeous oceanfront backdrop for the ceremony itself.)

If your vacationing party has something special in mind, whether it's access to beach toys and water sports gear, or an on-site oceanfront bar for after dinner drinks, the best way to find out if your preferred hotel or motel can cater your needs is to ask. After years of successfully providing fantastic beach vacations, many local hotels and motels are experienced in catering to vacationers, and providing them with exactly the amenities and services they need.

Any tips or tricks for staying at an Outer Banks hotel or motel?

  • For a completely stress-free vacation, visitors who are staying in a weekly vacation rental may want to consider enjoying a night before their check-in date, or after their check-out date, at a local Outer Banks hotel or motel. Check-in days for vacation rentals, which most always fall on a Saturday or Sunday, can be notoriously tricky drives in the prime summer weeks, with traffic jams a regular occurrence on both the main US Highway and NC Highway To avoid the gridlock and begin your vacation with a quiet evening on the beach, consider a stay at a local hotel or motel the night before your arrival. This way, it's easy to relax and get into vacation mode well before you check into your vacation home.
  • A number of hotels and motels offer special packages to lure their guests into enjoying an extended beach stay. These packages can include tickets to locally renowned events, like the annual Taste of the Beach in March or the Bluegrass Festival in October, discounts on spa services, or complimentary amenities such as free breakfasts, premier cable channels, or free Wi-Fi.

    Large parties, such as wedding parties, will find even deeper discounts with many hotels happily opening their doors to guests of an Outer Banks destination wedding. Be sure and ask in advance if your hotel or motel of choice has any special promotions or packages available, and don't forget that typical hotel discounts, such as AAA rates, can apply on the Outer Banks as well.

  • Need a quick getaway on a budget? Plan an off-season stay. Many hotels and motels may be booked during those sunny June, July and August months, but the Outer Banks' worst kept secret is the allure of the off-season, when traffic has slowed, the majority of local restaurants and shops are still open, (especially in the central Outer Banks towns of Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk), and the weather is still a breezy, sunny paradise.

Rates go down significantly in the off-season, and weekend vacationers will enjoy plenty of privacy and all the attractions the Outer Banks has to offer. Still need your summer fix? Then plan a stay mid-week vacation, from Monday - Thursday. A number of hotels and motels offer slightly lower rates for mid-week stays, even in the prime summer season.

For a quick overnight stay or a weeklong oceanfront retreat, the hotels and motels along the Outer Banks are ideal getaways. Providing exceptional beach access, convenient access to local shops and restaurants, and fantastic inclusive amenities, these establishments have been providing idyllic beach vacations to visiting families for years. Guests who want a friendly, well-loved little motel or an all-inclusive resort will find themselves well represented on the Outer Banks, and will be equally happy to discover that on the beach, friendly hospitality always comes free of charge.

The Catskill Mountains, also known as the Catskills, are a physiographic province of the larger Appalachian Mountains, located in southeastern New York. As a cultural and geographic region, the Catskills are generally defined as those areas close to or within the borders of the Catskill Park, a ,acre (2,&#;km2) forest preserve forever protected from many forms of development under New York state law.

Geologically, the Catskills are a mature dissected plateau, a flat region subsequently uplifted and eroded into sharp relief by watercourses. The Catskills form the northeastern end of the Allegheny Plateau (also known as the Appalachian Plateau).[1][2]

The Catskills were named by early Dutch settlers. They are well known in American society as the setting for films and works of art, including many 19th-century Hudson River School paintings, as well as for being a favored destination for vacationers from New York City in the midth century. The region's many large resorts gave countless young stand-up comedians an opportunity to hone their craft. Since the late 19th century, the Catskills have been a haven for artists, musicians and writers, especially in and around the towns of Woodstock and Phoenicia.

History[edit]

Main article: History of the Catskill Mountains

Etymology[edit]

Views of the Catskills from the Hudsonlike this led to the name "Blue Mountains" for a time.
A revision of a map of New Netherlandshowing the locations of the "Lands of the Kats Kills" and the "High Lands of the Esopus"

Nicolaes Visscher I's map of New Netherland located the Landt van Kats Kill at the mouth of Catskill Creek. The region to the south is identified as Hooge Landt van Esopus (High Lands of the Esopus), a reference to a local band of northern LenapeNative Americans who inhabited the banks of the Hudson and hunted in the highlands along the Esopus Creek.[3]

While the meaning of the name ("cat creek [kill]" in Dutch) and the namer (early Dutch explorers) are settled matters, how and why the area is named "Catskills" is a mystery. Mountain lions (catamounts) were known to have been in the area when the Dutch arrived in the 17th century and may have been a reason for the name.[4]

The confusion over the origins of the name led over the years to variant spellings such as Kaatskill and Kaaterskill, both of which are also still used: the former in the regional magazine Kaatskill Life, the latter as the name of a mountain peak and a waterfall. The supposed Native American name for the range, Onteora ("land in the sky"), was actually created by a white man in the midth century to drum up business for a resort.[citation needed] It, too, persists today as the name of a school district and as the name of a Boy Scout summer kill devil hills hotels (Onteora Scout Reservation).

Geography[edit]

The Catskill Mountains are approximately miles (&#;km) north-northwest of New York City and 40 miles (64&#;km) southwest of Albany, starting west of the Hudson River. The Catskills occupy much of two counties (Greene and Ulster), and extend slightly into Delaware, Sullivan, and southwestern Schoharie counties.

At the range's eastern end, the mountains begin dramatically with the Catskill Escarpment rising up suddenly from the Hudson Valley. The western boundary is far less certain, as the mountains gradually decline in height and grade into the rest of the Allegheny Plateau, but maps from the 18th and 19th centuries consistently mark the border of the Catskill Mountains as the East Branch of the Delaware River, which is consistent with the actual topographic relief.[5] The Pocono Mountains, to the immediate southwest in Pennsylvania, are also a part of the Allegheny Plateau.

The Catskills contain more than 30 peaks above 3, feet (1,&#;m) and parts of six important rivers. The Catskill Mountain Club is an organization whose members have climbed all the peaks in the Catskills over 3, feet (1,&#;m). The highest mountain, Slide Mountain in Ulster County, has an elevation of 4, feet (1,&#;m).

Climatically, the Catskills lie within the Allegheny Highlands forestsecoregion.

Climate[edit]

According to the Köppen climate classification system, the Catskill Mountains have two climate zones. The vast majority of the Catskills have a warm summer humid continental climate (Dfb) with some isolated locations in valleys with hot summer humid continental climate (Dfa). The plant hardiness zone on Slide Mountain at 4, feet (1,&#;m) is 5a with an average annual extreme minimum temperature of −&#;°F (−&#;°C). The plant hardiness zone in Margaretville at 1, feet (&#;m) is 5b with an average annual extreme minimum temperature of −&#;°F (−&#;°C).[6]

Geology[edit]

Kaaterskill Fallson Spruce Creek near Palenville, New York. One of the higher falls in New York. Two separate falls total &#;ft (79&#;m).

Although the Catskills are sometimes compared with the Adirondack Mountains farther north, the two mountain ranges are not geologically related, as the Adirondacks are a continuation of the Canadian Shield. Similarly, the Shawangunk Ridge, which forms the southeastern edge of the Catskills, is part of the geologically distinct Ridge-and-Valley province and is a continuation of the same ridge known as Kittatinny Mountain in New Jersey and Blue Mountain in Pennsylvania.

The Catskill Mountains are more of a dissected plateau[8] than a series of mountain ranges. The sediments that make up the rocks in the Catskills were deposited when the ancient Acadian Mountains in the east were rising and subsequently eroding. The sediments traveled westward and formed a great delta into the sea that was in the area at that time. The escarpment of the Catskill Mountains is near the former (landward) edge of this delta, as the sediments deposited in the northeastern areas along the escarpment were deposited above sea level by moving rivers, and the Acadian Mountains were located roughly where the Chase atm customer service phone number Mountains are located today (though significantly larger). Finer sediment was deposited further westward, and thus the rocks change from gravel conglomerates to sandstone and shale. Further west, these fresh water deposits intermingle with shallow marine sandstone and shale until the end, in deeper water limestone.

The uplift and erosion of the Acadian Mountains was occurring during the Devonian[9] and early Mississippian period ( to &#;million years ago). Over that time, thousands of feet of these sediments built up, slowly moving the Devonian seashore further west. A meteor impact occurred in the shallow sea approximately mya, creating a 10&#;km (6&#;mi) diameter crater. This crater eventually filled with sediments and became Panther Mountain through the process of uplift and erosion. By the middle of the Mississippian period, the uplift stopped, and the Acadian Mountains had been eroded so much that sediments no longer flowed across the Catskill Delta.

Over time, the sediments were buried by more sediments from other areas, until the original Devonian and Mississippian sediments were deeply buried and slowly became solid rock. Then the entire area experienced uplift, which caused the sedimentary rocks to begin to erode. Today, those upper sedimentary rocks have been completely removed, exposing the Devonian and Mississippian rocks. Today's Catskills are a result of the continued erosion of these rocks, both by streams and, in the recent past, by glaciers.

In successive ice ages, both valley and continental glaciers have widened the valleys and the notches of the Catskills and rounded the mountains. Grooves and scratches in exposed bedrock provide evidence of the great sheets of ice that once traversed the region. Even today the erosion of the mountains continues, with the region's rivers and streams deepening and widening the mountains' valleys and cloves.

Recreation[edit]

Aquatic sports and recreation[edit]

Esopus Creek is a mile (&#;km) tributary of the Hudson River, starting at Winnisook Lake on Slide Mountain. It flows across Ulster County to the Hudson River at Saugerties. The Esopus is noted for making an almost degree turn around Panther Mountain, following a buried 6-mile (10&#;km) impact crater rim. It is famous for tubing, a sport of rafting down a river in an inner tube. Many tubers begin their trip at Phoenicia, New York, and head down the creek towards the Ashokan Reservoir at Olive, New York.

The Ashokan Reservoir is part of the New York City water supply system, with fishing allowed under permit, but swimming and most other recreational uses are forbidden.

River canoeing and kayaking are popular. There are 42 rapids ranging from class I to V+.[10]

The Esopus Creek is famous for its fly fishing, although kill devil hills hotels recent years[when?] it has been plagued by invasive plants.[11]

Cycling[edit]

Road and mountain bicycling are fairly popular in the range. Bicycle racing includes the Tour of the Catskills, a three-day road stage race held in Green and Ulster counties each summer,[12] and the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in Windham.[13] Other cycling resources include the Catskill Scenic Trail, the Headwaters Trails in Stamford and the Roundtopia trail network (mapped by the Round Top Mountain Bike Association).[14] Several ski centers provide downhill mountain bicycling in the warmer months.

Hiking and camping[edit]

Within the range is the Catskill Park, comprising overacres (,&#;ha). Catskill Park is part of New York's Forest Preserve. Not all the land is publicly owned; about 60% remains in private hands, but new sections are added frequently. Most of the park and the preserve are within Ulster County, with a significant portion in Greene County, and parts in Sullivan and Delaware counties as well. Many of the trails in public areas are maintained and updated by the New York–New Jersey Trail Conference and the Catskill Mountain Club.

Devil's Path is one of the many trails open for hikers. Spots to camp in the Catskills include Bear Spring Mountain, Little Pond, Mongaup Pond, and North-South Lake.[15]

Skiing[edit]

There are five main downhill ski and snowboard areas in the Catskills: Belleayre Mountain (run by the Olympic Regional Development Authority); Hunter Mountain (the first ski area to install snowmaking machines in New York); Windham Mountain; Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun in Monticello; and Plattekill Mountain in Roxbury.

Joppenbergh Mountain, in Rosendale Village hosted its first ski jumping competition in Ski jumping was continued on the mountain until February 7,when the last competition was held.

The Mountain Trails Cross Country Ski Center in Tannersville has 22 miles (35&#;km) of trails.

Structures[edit]

Fire towers[edit]

The Catskill Mountains fire towers were constructed to facilitate forest fire prevention and control. Twenty-three fire towers were built in the Catskill Mountains between and The fire towers fell out of use by the s as fire spotting from airplanes had become more effective and efficient, so the fire towers were decommissioned; the Hunter Mountain Fire Tower was the last to be taken out of service in All but six of the towers were dismantled. The five remaining towers have been renovated and opened to the public as observation posts with panoramic views. The remaining towers are:

  • Balsam Lake Mountain Fire Observation Station near Hardenburgh, elevation 3,&#;ft (1,&#;m)
  • Hunter Mountain Fire Tower near Hunter, elevation 4,&#;ft (1,&#;m)
  • Mt. Utsayantha Fire Tower Stamford, New York, elevation 3,&#;ft (&#;m)
  • Overlook Mountain Tower near Woodstock, elevation 3,&#;ft (&#;m)
  • Red Hill Fire Tower near Denning, elevation 2,&#;ft (&#;m)
  • Tremper Mountain Fire Tower near Shandaken, elevation 2,&#;ft (&#;m)

Notable landmarks[edit]

The Catskill Mountain House, built inwas a hotel near Palenville, New York, in the Catskill Mountains overlooking the Hudson River Valley. In its prime at the turn of the century, visitors included United States PresidentsUlysses S. Grant, Chester A. Arthur and Theodore Roosevelt.

Transportation[edit]

Fromthe northern part of the Catskills were served by the Catskill Mountain Branch of the Ulster and Delaware Railroad which was absorbed into the New York Central railroad in Oneonta to Kingston passenger rail service continued until Part of the line still exists but now serves only freight.

The southern part of the Catskills was served by the New York, Ontario and Western Railway. Over the course ofservice on the NYO&W downscaled to summer only. In its last years it ran trains from Roscoe to Weehawken, New Jersey, via Liberty. It connected with the New York Central's West Shore Railroad at Cornwall.[16][17] This service lasted until September 10, [18]

The Delaware and Ulster Kill devil hills hotels is a heritage railroad, based in Arkville, New York, that still runs a scenic part of the track from Highmount to Hubbell Corners, New York, for tourist use. The Catskill Mountain Railroad is also a heritage railroad in the Catskills, operating from Kingston up to Highmount.

The Catskills are accessible by automobile from the east along Interstate 87/New York State Thruway, which runs north–south through the Hudson Valley. To the south and southwest, the Catskills are accessible by a variety of highways, including New York State Route 55, U.S. Route 44, U.S. Routeand New York State Route Access to the western Catskills is provided by New York State Route 30; and the vaguely defined far-western edge of the region is variously considered to be New York State Route 10 or Interstate 88, though this boundary remains a matter of local preference. New York State Routes 28 and 23A cut east–west through the heart of the Catskills, serving many of the most popular outdoor tourist destinations. New York State Route 23 runs east–west across the Catskills' northern section.

The closest major airports to the Catskill region are Albany International Airport to the north and Stewart International Airport in Newburgh to the south. Smaller airports in the region include:

In popular culture[edit]

The Hudson Valley Film Commission maintains a list of films set in the Hudson Valley / Catskills Region.[19] Of them, more than three dozen films are set in the Catskills. Author/illustrator Snb motors Schork, born and raised in Olivebridge in the southern Catskills, acknowledges the area as the inspiration for two of his children's books: 's The Love of Simon Fox, and 's More Tales from the Enchanted Wood (the latter the recipient of several prizes for children's literature).[20] The town of Bethel, New York, located in the Catskills, was home to the famous Woodstock music festival that took place August 15–18, The event, wherein 32 music acts performed in front of overconcert-goers, was captured in the documentary movie Woodstock (). The site is now home to the world-renowned Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.

The many hotels and vacation resorts located in the Catskills are notable in American cultural history for their role in the development of modern stand-up comedy. Comedians such as Rodney Dangerfield, Jackie Mason, Alan King, and Don Rickles all got their start performing in Catskill hotel venues colloquially referred to as the Borscht Belt.[21]

Kill Devil Hills Hotels - Guide

More Information on Outer Banks Hotels

For postcard-perfect long weekends, or full week stays that have exceptional access to indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants, and amenities, there's nothing quite like the convenience of a stay at a local Outer Banks hotel or motel. A number of hotels on the Outer Banks have been welcoming guests for decades, and as a result, vacationers have come back year after year for the fantastic service and the mile-high oceanfront or soundfront views.

In recent years, a number of established chain hotels had made a claim on the Outer Banks, attracting guests with their national prestige and host of on-site amenities and concierge services. Still more have become the temporary home for a number of regional and even international conferences, including Outer Banks-wide celebrations like the Taste of the Beach Event or the annual Wedding Expo.

But vacationers who don't need all the fuss and just want a quiet room to retreat to after a full day in the sun will find plenty of options available as well, with small mom and pop establishments that offer incredible beach access, on-site amenities such as community pools, hot tubs, or even mini golf courses, and an accommodating staff that is ingrained with Southern Hospitality.

Intrigued? Review the following Frequently Asked Questions regarding a stay at a local Outer Banks hotel or motel to learn more, or simply call up your favorite local lodgings for more information. For a classic beach vacation that is simply (or exquisitely) Outer Banks, a leisurely stay at a local hotel or motel might be just the ticket.

How do you book an Outer Banks hotel or motel?

With the exception of a few small and well-loved hold outs, the majority of hotels and motels on the Outer Banks have detailed websites with online booking services available for guests' convenience. With just a few clicks, guests can effectively view room photos and locations, area maps, featured amenities, and availability. National chains may not have area-specific websites, but by entering your preferred locale, (namely Outer Banks), and conducting a quick search, internet browsers can easily find beachside accommodations.

Several small inns and motels may not have full-service websites available, but they do have friendly staff on hand virtually all day and evening to answer questions and accept reservations over the phone.

Be prepared to have a credit card handy to secure the reservation, and pay careful attention to the hotel or motel's cancellation policies. While most regions of the country generally accept cancellations up to the day of arrival, many Outer Banks lodgings, due to their coastal locale, may require at least 24 hours advance notice in the event of a cancellation.

Several hotels and motels may also require that summer weekend guests stay for two nights, with a Friday check-in and a Sunday morning departure. However, most Outer Banks vacationers do not find this to be an issue, as a long weekend on the OBX can be a complete breath of fresh air.

When should you book an Outer Banks hotel or motel?

Unlike vacation rentals, campgrounds, and even Bed and Breakfasts, a hotel stay can often be booked just a few weeks from your expected vacation. That said, a number of the premier rooms, (i.e., rooms with the best oceanfront views, or with special amenities such as handicapped friendly facilities), may fill up quickly, so potential guests who are looking for a particular location or feature should call as far in advance as possible. Generally rate changes can potentially occur with the start of the year, but are usually advertised well in advance for the convenience of guests.

In addition, guests that are planning to vacation on popular long weekends, (like Memorial Day, Labor Day, or 4th of July Weekends), or who intend to stay for a full-week, should also consider booking well in advance, to ensure their Outer Banks accommodations.

Winter and shoulder season months, (typically recognized from late September until early May), and mid-week stays do not fill up as fast, and patrons will find plenty of accommodations available in all areas of the Outer Banks within these parameters, regardless of when they book.

Day trippers who spontaneously decide to spend a night should take a drive down the Beach Road, the original road that ran through the three coastal towns, and currently runs parallel to the US Bypass along the oceanfront. Here, they'll spot a dozen motels and hotels, with available vacancies listed on their roadside marquis.

Manteo, located just off the beach, has a hotel culture all its own. Vacationers may not find any national chains in these parts, however, they will find a variety of motels and hotels that have been serving up fantastic vacations for generations Located both along the main route through Manteo, on US 64, or tucked beside the waterfront near the historic downtown, the Manteo accommodations are renowned for their friendly service, fantastic amenities, and proximity to some of the Outer Banks' most loved attractions, including the Elizabethan Gardens, the North Carolina Aquarium, and the Lost Colony outdoor drama.

Hatteras Island is another Outer Banks locale without any national hotel chains or multi-story structures, and seasoned vacationers couldn't be happier about it. On Hatteras Island, vacationers will find small, established motels and hotels that offer exceptional beach access, stunning waterfront views, and friendly staff that have most likely been manning the front desk for decades.

Buxton Village has the largest concentration of hotels and motels, with many offering direct beach access, ocean views, and lots of local hospitality. Water lovers will also adore the village of Hatteras, at the southern end of the island, as the majority of motels and hotels here feature fantastic harbor front or soundfront views. Several small hotels lie adjacent to the marinas that line up against the Pamlico Sound-bordering harbor, so visiting mariners can pull up their boat, drop anchor, and enjoy a restful night's stay in a comfy, soundfront room.

From small, budget friendly motels that have been in business since the s to gorgeous harbor front accommodations with private balconies and hammocks included with every room, the selection on Ocracoke Island is surprisingly wide and varied.
