Blue Mountains

Blue Mountains

So named because of the azure haze that often settles above them, the Blue Mountains—which, in actuality, are not so much a series of peaks as they are a grouping of ridges, plateaus, and gorges—are a quick getaway from the city and a fantastic place to spend a weekend. You’ll want to take one of the countless walks in the area, and most definitely get a look at the Three Sisters, a trio of sandstone rocks made for picture-snapping.
