Spring is just around the corner and there are plenty of exciting events happening in the Woodstock area. Finally the color green is popping up all over, the birds are chirping, and the sun is shining. It is a great feeling to come up to the Mountains, enjoy the outdoors, attend some great events, and visit some exciting places. All of which are walking distance or a very short drive from The White Dove Rockotel. Saturday April 4th is the opening day of the Catskill Animal Sanctuary named the number one coolest out of town spot by Time Out New York. You can become best friends with the animals at the sanctuary by getting up close and personal. The sanctuary is also a great way to get exposed to a vegan lifestyle.
If discovering the outdoors is more your speed to enjoying Spring, the Catskills has the best hiking around. Just a ten minute drive from The White Dove Rockotel is Overlook Mountain. This epic trail has an abandoned hotel, a 300 feet high fire tower to climb, and the best views of the Hudson Valley. It is not a very strenuous hike and can be done in a couple of hours leaving plenty of time to come back into town, freshen up in your Suite, and hit the town.
Of course there is always some great music in Woodstock and the Radio Woodstock spring concert series gets going with a stellar lineup at the Bearsville Theater. Starting on March 22nd David Bromberg brings his guitar virtuoso music and a history of playing with some of the greatest rock and roll musicians of the modern age. Friday April 3rd Joan Osborne comes to Woodstock with her bag of hits going back to the early 90's. On April 4th the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band hits the stage playing classic New Orleans Jazz. On April 10th Gene Ween plays Billy Joel only one of two performances of this show and it will be a great time to rock out. Then wrapping up the month of April on the 18th Suzanne Vega come to the Bearsville Theater playing her classic hits and new music.
All these exciting things to do just minutes away from your amazing, cozy, and perfect suite at The White Dove Rockotel. So how many weekends are you going to book this Spring? One just may not be enough.
