About Us

VISITvortex is your portal to the great people and places of the Hudson Valley and Catskills.

Our mission is to help stimulate the local economy by promoting and introducing the faces behind independently owned businesses and organizations. As a community, we support each other by shopping locally and by experiencing all that this area has to offer. VISITvortex is a celebration of each season and a visual display of the Catskills' and Hudson Valley’s treasures online, IN print, and through video.

Sharing the very best of local.
