White Plains vacation rentals

Visit White Plains for a different taste of NYC

A kaleidoscope of sprawling country mansions, timber-clad cottages, and luxurious, real-stone estate houses with pools in their gardens is what you can expect from White Plains vacation rentals, which should show how this affluent little corner of New York State offers a quieter, calmer taste of The Big Apple. You'll get to wander leafy streets and drink coffees in local diners. You'll rub shoulders with residents and workaday folk with perennial smiles. And you'll be able to seek out fascinating Revolutionary War battlefields and relics between the charming suburbs.

Revolution and roaring bars in White Plains

Just when you thought New York City was all about soaring skyscrapers and tooting yellow cabs, White Plains reveals its wealth of Revolutionary War sites and National Register of Historic Places. Check off all those before you taste the more local vibes, hopping between the beer halls, al fresco artisan coffee shops, and American saloons that imbue the modern middle of town. And let's not forget the nearby river walks, the golf courses, and the town’s performing arts center.

Tread where George Washington walked in White Plains

The main magnet for history buffs in White Plains has to be the duo of the Jacob Purdy House and the Battle of White Plains Park. These offer an insight to the pivotal conflicts of 1776 during the American Revolutionary War, and also the chance to stand precisely where George Washington stood on the eve of battle. After that, you can sample local life and delve into the medley of Irish bars, microbreweries, and sports pubs in the downtown area – search for White Plains vacation rentals on Main Street or Mamaroneck Avenue if that sounds more like your kind of thing.

White Plains enjoys an Indian Summer

You won’t have to plan your vacation in White Plains for the high summer if you're after dry days and steady temperatures. Although the months between June and August are warm and pleasant, it's actually October that has the most sunshine hours overall, making the fall the perfect time to hop between the outdoor battlefields and Revolutionary War sites here. That said, wintertime usually sees the town doused in snow from December to February, adding a charming wonderland character to the place.

White Plains sits on the very edge of the Big Apple

It's just a short, 25-mile hop from the bustling strips of Midtown Manhattan to the characterful suburban neighborhoods of Westchester. That's why White Plains vacation rentals are such a hit with visitors who want to taste a quieter, more local side of the Big Apple. And while urban sprawl encompasses the town, it’s still not far to go for the winding woodland parks along the Hudson River, the wild greenery and forests of the Rockefeller State Park Preserve, or the trout fishing hotspots around the Kensico Reservoir.
