Worth the Drive

These delicious destinations are the 6 best road trips to take this fall

Located a mere two-hour drive from New York City and less than a half a day from other East Coast cities, the Catskills has long been a magnet for urbanites who crave the slower pace—and idyllic scenery—of riverside towns, mountain villages and rural hamlets. The region offers fly fishing, great hiking, an abundance of local farm stands, and, come fall, stunning foliage that’s ablaze in color.


Get the best view of the North East in the BMW 7 Series. Your road trip is beautifully illuminated with the Panoramic Sky Lounge LED roof, so you can snag front row seats to summer destinations that are worth the drive. See all vehicle features.

“Marla and I use to take weekend trips with friends up to the Woodstock area when we were still living in the city—places like Bearsville, Woodstock, Saugerties, Phoencia. It was always so great to get away from the city and still not have to drive too far!”


Catskill Mountain Foundation Farm Market

Shop for local and organic produce year-round at this market in Hunter. Its selection of prepared foods, artisanal cheeses and smokehouse products is particularly impressive—snag some provisions and get ready for an epic picnic.


Kaaterskill Falls

Watching the cascading two-tiered waterfall, you'll understand why this site was popular with Hudson River School painters like Thomas Cole. The one-mile hike takes you past two waterfalls: Bastion Falls and Kaaterskill.


Go Fish

The Catskills are the birthplace of American dry-fly fishing. Try your luck on the Beaverkill, Upper Delaware, Neversink and Willowemac rivers, where pristine waters and bug life have made the region a draw for fly fishermen.

Drive in Style

With more innovation and athleticism than any other car in its class, the BMW 7 Series sets the standard for the future of luxury travel. Enjoy the ride with a WiFi hotspot that lets you stream your device to the back seat entertainment screens. See all vehicle features.
