Escape to Tarrytown

Posted on: August 9th, 2013 by Erin Weir No Comments

Tarrytown is just a short distance outside New York city making it a great place for a day trip or a weekend getaway.

It’s full of historic landmarks or fun and interesting things to do.  Visiting Kykuit or Lyndhurst will take you back to the early 19th century.  Fans of Washington Irving can visit his home at Sunnyside or visit some of his local haunts.  For the Ichabod Crane experience stop by Horseman’s Hallow or visit the Headless Horseman’s Bridge.

Many of Tarrytown’s sprawling Victorian and post Victorian estates have been converted into charming and romantic hotels and b&bs which are fabulous places to stay.  Some have even been fully restored so that it feels like you’re taking a trip back in time.

And of course you’ll never run out of great places to eat in Tarrytown! From the Zagat rated Equus, which holds Five Stars from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, to the more casual Green Grass Grill, there is something to satisfy every palate.

A day in Tarrytown is the perfect way to experience the country and escape the city.
