Cairo, NY

Small town charm coupled with an active community make Cairo a perfect destination for all ages.

Cairo is the crossroads of the Catskills, connecting nearby Albany with many of the other small towns of Greene County. With stunning natural landscapes and a growing local economy, Cairo is a wonderful place to escape to for a weekend or explore for a day. If you’re looking for the antidote to busy city life, Cairo provides an excellent alternative.

A Town of Celebration

For a small town, the community of Cairo is very active. Town-wide events are a staple, and the local citizens rarely miss an opportunity to celebrate. Fourth of July in Cairo offers family-friendly festivities, craft booths, and local vendors. Or, explore Cairo’s rich architectural history on their Annual Tour of Homes, which has been held every year for over forty years!

Outdoor Recreation

In addition to being the crossroads of Catskill communities, Cairo is also the gateway to outdoor recreation in the Great Northern Catskills. Hiking trails are abundant in the nearby mountains, leading to scenic overlooks and stunning waterfalls. Mountain biking trails galore can be found in nearby Round Top along the Round Top Trail Network. The town is only minutes away from fantastic fishing opportunities along the Hudson River, and picturesque golf courses are just a short drive away.
