Take A Weekend To Wine, Dine, And Explore The Irish Alps Of New York
The Alps are in central Europe. The Irish live in Ireland. Everyone knows these things. Then what, you ask, are the Irish Alps?
That’s a great question. The Irish Alps are not in Europe; this region is in New York. The area including and around East Durham in the northern Catskills has been affectionately referred to as the Irish Alps for many years because it was once a popular vacation spot for Irish immigrants from New York City. Although today people of all nationalities and heritages vacation in this area, the name stuck. Today, you can celebrate Irish American heritage when you visit this beautiful, green and mountainous area. Read on to learn more.
East Durham is a great place to visit if you want to enjoy a bit of Irish flavor without leaving New York! The Irish Alps are a great place to get away from it all and to spend a nice weekend in the mountains. Plan your trip today!
