A popular Hudson River town steeped in history

Washington Irving described it, the Underground Railroad ran through it, and John D. Rockefeller built a home there that stands to this day. Tarrytown is so rich in history, it's pretty amazing that the place has so much more to offer: awe-inspiring views of the Hudson River, boutique shopping, and a nature preserve. It's a destination for couples, families, and weekenders fleeing the city for a much needed break. You'll be delighted to know that your Tarrytown vacation rental is only 40 minutes from New York City, because you'll feel like you're in another world.

Don't tarry. There's too much to do in Tarrytown

The bustling main street is the center of life in Tarrytown. Head there to window-shop, relax at an outdoor caf_, or see a concert at the Tarrytown Music Hall. If you're looking for less commerce and more scenery, Tarrytown has you covered. Kayaking is a popular pastime for residents and visitors alike. Launch your kayak from Horan's Landing in adjacent Sleepy Hollow, NY, and paddle the Hudson. For families with kids, October is a particularly fun time to be in the area. Irving's legend has inspired haunted houses and hayrides galore.

Estates that will leave you in a state of wonder

If you've chosen a Tarrytown vacation rental, you're in good company. Take in the historic homes of the great Americans who also had the right idea. Kykuit might be the town's most famous landmark, a hilltop estate home to four generations of Rockefellers. A guided tour will take you to the main rooms and through the terraced gardens. Then, enjoy the more fanciful charm of Washington Irving's Dutch Plantation-style home, Sunnyside. It's filled with eclectic furnishings, and special events for the whole family include 19th century-style picnics and art shows.

In Tarrytown, autumn leaves are nature's fireworks display

Tarrytown has a humid, continental climate, which means warm summers and chilly winters. Activities on the Hudson are best enjoyed in summer, when the sun is bright and the temperatures hit the 80s around midday. Be prepared for summer storms and winter snow, but really, these temp extremes are nothing compared to the breathtaking beauty of the town in spring and fall. Halloween attractions may tempt the kids, but fall foliage attracts visitors of all ages. If you're booking a Tarrytown vacation rental in fall, book early and often.

Luscious flora by the lakeside in Tarrytown

Whether you like to fish, spot forest flowers, or observe what's flying overhead, Tarrytown Lakes Park has what you need. It's a 72-acre preserve with two lakes, two bike paths, and extensive walking trails bordered by woods and wildflowers, plus opportunities for kayaking and cross-country skiing in winter. The lakes are home to largemouth bass, perch, sunfish, and carp. Birdwatchers can spot warblers, green herons, and ovenbirds. You might not see a northern saw-whet owl, but if you're lucky, you'll hear them hooting overhead.
