There are hotels within the area, but self catering accommodation in Phoenicia seems to be becoming more and more popular. If you are looking into booking a property in this region, rest assured that you will be able to enjoy full kitchen facilities, TVs and comfortable sleeping and general living areas.

Things to Do on Holiday in Phoenicia, USA

For example, as you are within the Catskill Mountains, if you hit the area during the main winter months, you will be able to take advantage of a good number of highly-reputed skiing resorts. The summer sees other pastimes becoming popular, and these include the likes of rock-climbing, spelunking, abseiling, nature walking and hiking.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Phoenicia, USA

For most people, holidays in Phoenicia are all about being in a great position to make the most of some of the more remote parts of the US. With this in mind, you will discover that there are many national parks located within a very short driving distance of Phoenicia. These include Phoenicia Wild Forest, Catskill Park and Balsam Lake Mountain Wild Forest. For when you feel you have exhausted all of the natural beauty of the region, it will be time to start exploring local towns and villages, therefore, some suggestions for you include Shandaken, Woodstock, Kingston and Rhinebeck. For a much larger town, Albany is also a very short drive away and offers numerous tourist attractions and the opportunity to indulge in a little retail therapy.

Weather in Phoenicia, USA

During your holidays in Phoenicia, you will notice how the mountainous terrain in this part of New York State has a bearing on the type of weather you can expect. The summer should not prove to be too much of a problem, however, and it can still be pleasantly warm here, with plenty of sunshine: average temperatures should hit the low- to mid-twenties degrees Celsius. The winter is a different kettle of fish and heavy and prolonged snowfalls can be expected with temperatures always struggling to get much above freezing during daylight hours.

You will need to book your flights from London Heathrow (LHR) for travel to the self catering accommodation in Phoenicia. The flight will be to New York (JFK) Airport and can be reserved through airlines such as Delta Airlines, United Airlines, American Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and British Airways. The collection of a hired car is strongly recommended from the airport.
