As the historic location of Washington Irving’s spooky classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the village of Tarrytown, New York, is famous beyond its small size. Don’t expect the locals to lose their heads over this literary notoriety, though. It’s still known for low-key vibes and quiet hideaways. Today, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow are separate villages, but let’s be real—Ichabod Crane fell for Katrina Van Tassel right in the centre of you-know-where.
Ready for a hauntingly beautiful holiday in Tarrytown? Pack your walking shoes and smudging herbs and start the hunt for Tarrytown hotels along the coast or near scenic Taxter Ridge. If ghosts and ghouls aren’t your thing, you can always stay further down the Hudson in New York City accommodation instead.
Scary stories aside, Tarrytown is home to a beautiful waterfront. Pack a picnic for a few hours at Pierson Park, located conveniently close to the rail station, and snap some photos at the Tarrytown Lighthouse, visible from further north in Sleepy Hollow. While you’re in that neck of the woods, stop for a tour of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where the Headless Horseman practised his dressage moves—just kidding. Back in Tarrytown proper, be sure to visit Lyndhurst, a restored Gothic Revival mansion, which rumours suggest is…you guessed it, haunted. If you’re in the mood for more lively activities, head to Tarrytown Music Hall for an indie film screening, concert or comedy show. Later, relax in a luxurious Tarrytown hotel. We’ve heard that ghosts don’t like modern amenities or bubble baths.
Touch down at New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA) in Queens. From there, catch the train at Grand Central in Manhattan or grab one of Wotif’s car hire deals for the scenic 43 km drive to Tarrytown.
