If you want to experience all the very best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY then you’ll probably want to understand exactly how to get there first.

Well, the good news is that it’s pretty dang easy to get to Sleepy Hollow from NYC. Just head to Grand Central Terminal and catch a MetroNorth, Hudson Line train to Tarrytown station.

Yup, it really is that simple. Heck, there are even express trains that will get you to Tarrytown station in a mere 35-minutes (there are also lots of local trains that will probably take around an hour to get to Tarrytown from NYC).

And while you could probably walk/uber it to most of the best things to do in Tarrytown NY mentioned here, I would recommend renting a car since public transportation here sucks and having a car just makes getting around about 10,000 times easier.

Alternatively, you could always drive in since Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow are both accessible to much of the Northeastern United States from either I-87, I-287, or I-95 if you cross the Tappan Zee Bridge.

Best Things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY and Best Things to do in Tarrytown NY

1. Celebrate Halloween

Carved pumpkins lit up for the great Jack O'Lantern Blaze in Tarrytown. One of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY.

While this can’t be done year round, if you’re able to visit in October, joining in on the town’s Halloween festivities is definitely one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY.

Because the fun starts up in mid-to late September, and continues all the way through early November.

And OMG, do they go ALL OUT in Sleepy Hollow. Once you’ve celebrated Halloween here, you won’t want to celebrate it anywhere else.

So, start off with the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze. In fact, this is one of the largest Halloween events in the entire USA since over 7,000 hand-carved pumpkins are placed outside the Van Cortlandt Manor and lit up to make this beautiful 18th-century building look absolutely magical!

Think Halloween inspired treats of every variety, giant dinosaurs made out of hand-carved jack’o lanterns, and more! Yeah, I’ve been many times and it’s a great event that is also VERY popular. So, be sure to book your tickets well in advance.

That’s not all there is to do, either. Take a haunted hayride, go for a spooky ghost tour, or visit the Headless Horseman’s statue. They also have cemetery tours available for those who are REALLY brave.

The historic Tarrytown Music Hall also typically does a live showing of Rocky Horror Picture show that is A LOT of fun to attend. I went and had an AMAZING time.

Plus, each year this town holds an annual retelling of Irving’s classic tale. It’s delightful – but spooky – fun for the whole family. So, although you might think you know the legend, you can’t leave without hearing it live and in Sleepy Hollow!

Lastly, in neighboring Tarrytown, there’s an annual Halloween parade that runs all through the city and has some of the most spectacular and terrifying costumes on display. Luckily it’s during the daytime, so anyone can stop by and enjoy some fo the best things to do in Tarrytown NY.

2. Pay Your Respects at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery

Historic gravestones under a tree in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. One of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY.

If you need even more spooky fun in your life, pay a visit to the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. While it’s a popular spot to visit during Halloween, this is one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY at any time of the year.

Plus, it’s a great way to get a little Halloween spirit into your visit even if you can’t visit in October.

Unfortunately tours only run during the Halloween season, however, anyone can visit throughout the year on their own between 8:30 am to 4:30 pm daily. And the grounds are absolutely worth a wander.

FYI, many notable historical figures are also buried at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, though perhaps the most famous is Washington Irving himself, the author of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” – among others.

However, the story does not take place in this cemetery, but in a nearby one further down this list (the Old Dutch Reformed Church).

Not only is this Irving’s final resting place, but he’s kinda responsible for it existing in its current state. In fact, the cemetery was originally known as the Tarrytown Cemetery, but was renamed the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery by his request after he had died.

Pro Tip: If you can, DEFFO add a cemetery tour to your Sleepy Hollow itinerary. They are all about an hour long (or an hour and a half long) and tell the fascinating history of this impressive, 90-acre cemetery for around $30 per person.

There are also a ton of different tours to choose from, like (check the website for more info):

  • The Good The Bad and The Unusual   Saturday, September 25,  Friday, October 1, Saturday Oct. 2 Friday Oct. 8, Saturday, Oct. 9, and Friday, Oct. 15 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
  • Evening Lantern Tour – Friday and Saturday nights in September. Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in October and November at various times.

Hours: Open daily 8:00 am to 4:30 pm daily, expect on Saturdays and Sundays when they open at 8:30 am.

Price: Free!

3. Take a tour of Kykuit, the Rockefeller Mansion

Stunning exterior of the Kykuit Mansion which belonged to the Rockefeller. One of the best things to do in Tarrytown NY.

Since being built in 1913, Kykuit has been home to four generations of Rockefellers, starting with oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller for whom it was built.

But today Kykuit is listed as a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. And that means anyone can now visit/enjoy one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY.

Well, kind of. You have to visit via a guided tour. But honestly, I can’t imagine seeing it any other way.

For starters, you’d get lost immediately because this place is ridiculously huge. And if you don’t get lost in the house, you’d definitely get lost on the grounds.

So sign up for a tour and see how the 1% live for a day. Marvel at the outrageously large living room and the gorgeous gardens. There are also some great views over the Hudson from the estate.

While not technically located in Sleepy Hollow, the mansion is a mere 6 minute drive away. So, I think it’s still safe to say it’s one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow!

Address: 381 N Broadway, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591

Hours: Currently closed.

Price: Tickets are $28 for adults and $26 for children, students, and seniors.

4. See the picturesque Tarrytown Lighthouse (or Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse)

Tarrytown Lighthouse with the Tappan Zee Bridge in the background on the Hudson River

If you know me, you know I love lighthouses! I’ve written about them before, like when I gave my picks for the best lighthouses in Portland Maine!

So, if I’m out and about on the East Coast – experiencing all the best things to do in Tarrytown NY – you know your girl over here will be drawn to a lighthouse like a moth to a … well, a lighthouse!

And Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown was not left out when it came to building cute yet functional lighthouses! I mean, the one that sits on the Tappan Zee – the wide part of the Hudson River that flows by town – is officially called the Tarrytown Light, but it’s also known as Sleepy Hollow Light and Kingsland Point Light.

Built in the late 1800s and first formally lit in 1883, Sleepy Hollow’s new aquatic safety feature was special because it had a place for the lighthouse keeper and his family to actually live inside.

It was later decommissioned in 1961, and then added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. As well as the lighthouse itself, there’s a small museum attached for some extra learning material!

And if you’re traveling to the lighthouse by car, parking is available nearby at Kingsland Point County Park, though it is $10 per non-resident. Alternatively you can park at the Tarrytown Waterfront public parking area for free and take in all the sweeping, waterside views.

Pro Tip: Have lunch in the aptly named Bridge View Tavern and you can admire lighthouse views off in the distance.

Address: Tarrytown Light-Kingsland Point Path, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591

Hours: You walk through Kingsland Point Park to get here, which is open daily from 9:00 am to 7: 30 pm.

Price: Free (You can use the bridge to walk around the lighthouse and enjoy one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY).

5. Hike through the Rockefeller State Park Preserve

Vibrant fall foliage around a pond in Rockefeller State Park Preserve.

If you’re looking to stretch your legs and enjoy the amazing natural landscapes that surround Sleepy Hollow then head slightly to the east of the town and you’ll find yourself in Rockefeller State Park Preserve.

This 1,771 acre park was owned and then donated by the Rockefeller family to the state of New York so that it could be preserved for future generations.

That’s why, you too can now you enjoy over 55 miles of historic carriage roads, sprawling meadows, lush fields and woodland trails. So it’s time to get your hiking shoes on, y’all and take advantage of one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY.

There’s also lots of history mixed into this natural utopia since many of the trails in the park were planned and laid out by the Rockefeller family, including some crushed stone carriage roads put in place by John D. Rockefeller Sr. and Jr. in the early 1900s.

But the main thing on display at this State Park is pure, unadulterated, awe-inspiring nature.

So, stroll through beech, maple, poplar and oak tree lined pathways as you try to spot some of the more than 200 different species of birds have been recorded in the park.

And if you’re lucky enough to visit in the fall, you may even see beautiful Monarch butterflies as they migrate south for the winter!

Address: 125 Phelps Way, Pleasantville, NY 10570

Hours: Open daily from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.

Price: Vehicle day use fee of between $6 and $10.

6. Get your Insta fix at Philipsburg Manor

Ancient farm houses and walks ways on the water in Philipsburg Manor in New York.

You’ll feel like you’ve taken a time machine back to the 1700s as you walk along the bridge across Pocantico River towards Philipsburg Manor!

This former trading post – complete with its slow-turning water wheel – is 300 years old, and looks AMAZING at any time of day, but especially at sunset!

This cultural building serves as a living museum, so visitors can find the building filled to the brim with period pieces, furniture, and various historic reproductions.

Fully costumed staff members are also scattered throughout the place and can tell you all about the history of the area. Like, did you know that this manor is mentioned in Washington Irving’s Sleepy Hollow short story? Yup, crazy but 100% true.

FYI, Philipsburg Manor is also named after Frederick Philipse, a Dutch merchant who managed to get hold of 52,000 acres of land along the Hudson River.

Unfortunately, he also managed to achieve his wealth by being very active in the African slave trade. So, perhaps its poetic justice that his family sided with the British in the American Civil War and lost everything. Karma’s a bitch, I guess!

Anyway, the manor is now a part of the African American Heritage Trail of Westchester County and is easily one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY.

Address: 381 N Broadway, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591

Hours: Open Wednesday through Sunday from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm.

Price: Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students/seniors (65+), $6 for kids (3-17), and free for children under 3.

7. Visit the Old Dutch Reformed Church

Stone exterior of the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow NY.

One of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow is to make your way to the Old Dutch Reformed Church. This historic site is the actual inspiration for Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow tale.

Therefore, walking around it is kind of like being a part of literature!

Anyway, the Old Dutch Church was founded sometime around 1685. This makes it the oldest existing church in New York! And if you take a look through the graveyard, you may just spot some familiar names – many of which were used as inspiration for Washington Irving’s Uber-famous short story!

So, if you appreciate older buildings, and are a bit of an architecture snob then you will adore the craftsmanship of this church. From the Gothic archways to the octagonal wooden belfry, everything here has been preserved and restored, despite there being a fire in 1837!

And when you finally take a look at the main church itself, do remember that this is a fully functioning religious building, with a congregation who regularly pray and practice there. So, please be respectful!

Pro Tip; To take make the most of your visit and fully enjoy one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY, try doing a historical society led tour of the area. They start in September and run through November.

Address: 430 Broadway, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591

Hours: Grounds are open daily until 4:30 pm while the church is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

Price: Free

8. Ride up to the Headless Horseman Bridge

Okay, so technically speaking, this bridge doesn’t really exist anymore. At least, not the bridge of legend that the Headless Horsemen rode across on his horse.

Yeah, that bridge is, sadly, long gone. Apparently, the original wooden bridge survived until 1912, when it was unceremoniously replaced with a more modern one by William Rockefeller.

And since then it was again replaced a few more times. You know, just for good measure.

So, yeah, the bridge that stands there today is strong enough to carry motorized vehicles and does so regularly. Whichmakes sense since Broadway is a main road through Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown.

However, luckily for you there’s a sign marking the bridge so you’ll know for sure where it is once you get there.

Actually, come to think of it, there are a ton fo different bridges in Sleepy Hollow. Many of which are much older, so it’s easy to get confused and excited about the wrong one.

But never fear (or do, cause you’re in Sleepy Hollow!) because the official Headless Horsemen Bridge is located in between the Headless Horsemen statue and the Old Dutch Reformed Church.

But, it’s definitely worth it to wander around town and visit some of the other Sleepy Hollow bridges since they are much older and a lot less trafficked – so you’re infinitely more likely to feel transported back in time while walking across them.

9. Take a trip down to Tarrytown to see Washington Irving’s former estate, Sunnyside

Irving may have written about Sleepy Hollow, but he lived in Tarrytown! In fact, you can still visit his home, Sunnyside, today and see where the genius wrote some of his most famous stories as you enjoy one of the best things to do in Tarrytown NY.

Located on the Hudson River, this beautiful historic 19th century home is quiet and isolated. So stepping inside, it isn’t hard to imagine, for a moment, that you have traveled back in time.

Visitors are welcome to visit via tour, during which time they will not only see where and how Irving lived, but learn lots of fascinating facts about him.

So, if you’re a fellow history and/or literature nerd, or just love spooky things, a visit to the 10-acre, Sunnyside estate is easily one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow – no matter what time of year you visit!

While you’re here, you may as well wander around Tarrytown, which is itself a cool place, and one of my favorite small towns in New York.

Address: 3 W Sunnyside Ln, Irvington, NY 10533

Hours: Open Friday through Sunday with entry times at 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 2:00 pm throughout August and September.

10. Enjoy fall foliage in Patriot’s Park

Vibrant fall foliage amongst spooky trees in a park in Sleepy Hollow, NY.

I know this is not something that people can do all year round, but New York in the fall is something that everyone should experience, and it’s one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY as well. And Patriots Park is the place to do it, IMO!

Patriots Park sits in the southern part of Sleepy Hollow, and is the perfect 4 acres of parkland to take a time-out and relax while you’re visiting Sleepy Hollow.

As you walk among the trees with the small stream trickling under the quaint stone bridges, everything feels calm and serene.

There are also tons of events held here – like live musical performances and pop-up markets. So, once you’re done admiring the tall, leafy trees, just find a spot to sit down and enjoy your surroundings!

If you’re looking for other great places to see the leaves change, check out my list of the best places to see New York fall foliage!

Address: Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591

Hours: Open daily from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm.

11. Pick up some produce at the Farmer’s Market – The TaSH

Best things to do in Tarrytown NY

It wouldn’t be a New York small town without a farmers market. And y’all know I’m all about that fresh, fresh produce!

For Sleepy Hollow, that means the TaSH – the Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow Farmers Market! Every year, the market sets up in Patriots Park every Saturday from May through November.

On total, over 30 different vendors take part, each bringing their own homegrown and handmade products.

Along with fresh fruits and vegetables, shoppers can look forward to trying out everything from samosas, risotto balls and mushrooms to jars of honey, pickles and olives, artisanal bread, craft beers and freshly ground coffee.

Hours: Saturday from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.

Price: Free unless you buy something.

12. Stay at the Castle Hotel and Spa

When I think of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow Ny, one thing I would never have thought of as an option would be to visit a castle. Another thing I would not have thought of was to be able to stay in it either!

But that’s what this luxury hotel (and spa – don’t forget the spa, Kelly!) is all about. This historic structure was commissioned by a private owner at the beginning of the 20th century, and was modelled after the 19th century Norman style castles of Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Then in the mid-90s it was reworked into the hotel and spa that it is today.

So, if you want to make your visit to Sleepy Hollow extra special, guests at the Castle can enjoy marble bathrooms, four-poster beds, wood-burning fireplaces and even turret alcoves. And it should be mentioned that the views from this place are gorgeous!

There’s also a pool (of course), continental breakfasts in the Great Hall (with stunning wood-panelled ceiling) and flat screen TVs in every room. You’ll also be just 10 minutes drive from pretty much everything you might want to visit as you check out all of the best things to do in Tarrytown NY.

Address: 400 Benedict Ave, Tarrytown, NY 10591

Hours: Front desk is open 24-hours per day.

Price: A little over $300 per night.

13. Grab a Pumpkin Apple Spice Sangria at the Bridge View Tavern

Jameson Pulled Pork Sandwich from the Bridge View Tavern.
Image sourced from the Bridge View Tavern.

Ok, so this is another one that’s specific to visiting in the fall. But, the Bridge View Tavern has drinks that will blow your mind all year long.

But that pumpkin apple spice sangria, tho. I mean, if you distilled walking through forests with orange gold leaves on the trees, thick wool sweaters, and roasting smores by the campfire into a drink, it would taste like this does. No joke!

Don’t worry – if you’re after a quality beer, sangria is not all that’s available at this bar! Because the Bridge View Tavern has over 20 beers on tap for you to choose from, including witbier, IPA, brown ale, milk and imperial stouts, lager, shandy and pilsner.

Plus, more options are available by the can as well as some of the more familiar cocktails like Bloody Mary, Old Fashioned and a very refreshing Grapefruit Martini.

The food menu here is also something worth mentioning. Umm, fig and goat’s cheese flatbread anyone? How about some Belgian curry mussels? Perhaps a plate of panko chicken scampi? But hey, if those sound too unusual, you can always chow down a good old Philly pork sandwich, or build your own burger while enjoying one of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY.

Pro Tip: Another great place to have a drink in Tarrytown is Coffee Labs Roasters Inc.. They serve some of the best coffee I’ve every had in my life and the funky fresh, hipster decor makes you feel super welcome. The cute AF latte art (think cute puppies) always makes me smile every damn time.

Address: 226 Beekman Ave, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591

Hours: Open daily from 12:00 pm to 9:30 pm, except on Mondays when they’re closed.

Price: Entrees are $15 and up while sangria starts at $10 per glass.

14. Eat the Horseman Burger at J.P. Doyles Restaurant & Public House

A selection of four beers with small bowls of snacks on the side that all sit stop a wooden table.

A girl’s gotta eat sometime, amirite? I mean, after all that sightseeing and hiking, nothing feels better than sitting down to a delicious home cooked dinner, especially if the portions are on the generous side!

And if you like your food to be on theme with your visit, make sure you head down to J.P. Doyles Restaurant & Public House on Beekman Avenue, right in the middle of town.

This friendly local pub serves all kinds of filling dishes, including steak, chicken and ribs, mac ’n’ cheese, shrimp, salads, and sandwiches.

But for the most Sleepy Hollow of dishes, you need to order the Horseman Burger. Named after the ghoulish character from the Sleepy Hollow legend, the Headless Horseman is a 10 ounce delight that comes cooked to your liking with a whole host of extra fillings and shoestring fries on the side.

If you’re looking for something to fill you up before a hike, or you want to finish off the perfect sightseeing day with a treat, this is the meal for you. It’s just a shame the Headless Horseman won’t ever get to eat one, seeing as he doesn’t have a mouth!

Pro Tip: Grab a beer and relax in the beer garden here while you wait for your meal.

Address: 48 Beekman Ave, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591

Hours: Open daily from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm, except they don’t open until 5:00 pm on Mondays.

15. See Belly Dancing at Santorini Greek Restaurant

Table full of traditional Greek food.

I know what you’re thinking. When you picture Sleepy Hollow, you see everyone eating Greek food. No? Just me?

Well, maybe they should be, because the food cooked up by the Samaras family at their family-owned-and-operated restaurant will make you want to come back again and again and experience even more of the best things to do in Sleepy Hollow NY.

In fact, their Greek and Mediterranean dishes are so good that they’ve been reviewed by the New York Times!

Before you even take a bite though, some of these dishes will blow you away with how impressive they look, especially the seafood ones.

So, to be the envy of every table in the joint, try ordering the Kalamarakia Platter, or the Broiled Bronzini.

Then of course there’s the possibility of evening entertainment with your meal. So, if you happen to be dining here on a Saturday, there will be live music and belly dancing to accompany your Loukaniko, Moussaka, or Souvlaki – skewers of seasoned and grilled meat!

Dessert is no exception to deliciousness here. For a simple but tasty pleasure, try out some Greek yoghurt with walnuts, sour cherries and honey. However, if you’re going for a bit more extravagance, order the homemade Kataifi or Ghalaktopouriko.

But whatever you order, make sure you also get some sweet, sweet Baklava. Trust me on this. After all, eating sweet, sweet Baklava is always and forever one of the best things to do in Tarrytown NY.

Address: 175 Valley St, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591
