Daytrip to Sleepy Hollow

by Katie Skrzek

Nov 5, 2020

As a pre-Halloween excursion, my husband and I recently took a daytrip to visit Sleepy Hollow, New York. Located in the state’s Hudson Valley, the quaint town is known as the setting for Washington Irving’s short story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”

Sleepy Hollow is about a two-hour drive from our house, so it was the perfect destination for a fall daytrip. We drove up through New Jersey, enjoying the beautiful fall foliage along the way. Our first stop was Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. The 90-acre cemetery is open to visitors, with limited guided tours at reduced capacity due to COVID-19. We opted to wander on our own. There are many famous interments at the cemetery, including Elizabeth Arden, Alice Brady, Walter Chrysler, Leona Helmsley and William Rockefeller. A particular draw during the Halloween season, Washington Irving is buried here. After doing a loop of the cemetery, we concluded our visit with a stop at Irving’s grave, where a visitor left a small pumpkin, no doubt a nod to his short story.

We then made our way to the adjacent town of Tarrytown. We walked through the local farmers market, a craft fair and browsed some of the shops and boutiques. After our day of wandering, we grabbed lunch at The Tapp. The bar and restaurant offers pub grub and a selection of local beers. I had fish and chips with a local cider, and my husband had a burger and local beer. It was a delicious meal with great service.

On our way home, we turned on a podcast about “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” It was a perfect way to end our trip.
