My Weekend in the Catskills

Camping is one of my favorite summertime activities. This year, however, summer seemed to slip away all too quickly and I didn't have the opportunity to spend any nights outside. When my friends David and Rebecca of TerraVelo Tours mentioned he had a tent available at the end of the season (before they packed everything up to head to Napa for their new tours), I knew I had to jump on the opportunity.

I've been camping with beds inside of a tent, but I've never been glamping before. The whole experience is elevated to a level of luxury once you feel how cozy a memory foam mattress and down duvet makes you feel. I can't think of a better way to end a long day of adventuring and exploring.

I love to try new mobile apps (especially when it comes to visual storytelling), so I decided to share my Catskills experience on Steller. Click through the books below to discover some how to plan the perfect weekend getaway in Upstate New York.
