Take A Guided Night Tour On Halloween
Most American’s have heard the story of Sleepy Hollow and Ichabod Crane! But not many know that the town of Sleepy Hollow actually exists and is right by Tarrytown! In fact, Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown have joined ranks to create the Halloween capital of New York.
During the Halloween season, visitors can take a guided night tour of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetary, can purchase tickets to the Horseman’s Hollow Trail, or check out the Blaze at the Van Cortlandt Manor which showcases thousands of lit jack-o-lanterns! The best part is the Halloween parade that is always held on the Sunday before Halloween day!
Visit The Tarrytown Music Hall
The Tarrytown Music Hall is the oldest theater in Westchester County! Visitors can enjoy comedy shows and musicians playing Jazz, R & B, Rock, Country, and just about any other type of music! Keep in mind that the bar at the Tarrytown Music Hall is cash only, but you’ll love the drinks that are poured as you take in the latest show.
Go See The Tarrytown Lighthouse
Sitting on the eastern side of the Hudson River, the Tarrytown Lighthouse is a historical cast-iron structure that has helped guide boats on the river.
Visit The Tappen Zee Bridge
The Tappen Zee Bridge is just plain neat (for those of us who don’t speak in architectural terms)! The bridge offers amazing views of the Hudson River. At sunset, the bridge offers a beautiful picture for those who are interested in photography.
Downtown Tarrytown has an amazing Main Street where dozens of small shops make their homes. Visitors can grab a sweet treat, grab a coffee, look for paintings and sculptures, shop for antiques of all varieties, visit several toy stores, or pick out a new outfit. Main Street is a fabulous place to find the perfect gift for a loved one. You never know what type of treasure you’ll find!
