Your Beyond-Perfect Day in Tarrytown:

Start with breakfast: Fuel up at Coffee Labs, grab breakfast and provisions at Mint gourmet shop and restaurant, or enjoy brunch on the sidewalk patio at Horsefeathers.

Stop by the farmers market: Located in historic Patriots Park, the award-winning TaSH Farmers Market straddles the villages of Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow and is open every Saturday morning through November.

Stretch your legs: Walk or bike the Bridge Path at the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, or download the Travel Stories app for a virtual walking tour of Tarrytown. Pierson Park at RiverWalk is a hit with young children, thanks to its splash pad and playground.

Take a lunch break: Tarrytown abounds in great lunch spots to please all palates. Try Grass Roots Kitchen for healthy, farm-fresh fare, Main Street Pizza for Italian favorites, Bibillé for Korean fusion, Little B’s for burgers or My Tokyo for sushi.

Shop downtown: Check out Bellas Boutique Store—an “enchanted attic” of eclectic items, Belkind Bigi antiques, Shaylula Jewelry & Gifts, Pretty Funny Vintage—collection of old and new and local souvenirs and The Swan's House—eclectic vintage furniture.

Step back in time: Take a mansion or backstairs tour at Lyndhurst, Tarrytown’s spectacular Gothic-revival estate, or get a grounds pass and spend the afternoon exploring the expansive grounds overlooking the Hudson.

Have dinner: A few of the many great downtown dinner options include Sweetgrass Grill, showcasing the best of local farms, the country farmhouse-style Tarry Tavern and The Cube Inn for “killer” Cuban cuisine.

Soak up the night scene: Catch an evening show at Jazz Forum Arts or Tarrytown Music Hall, watch the sunset from the Washington Irving Boat Club patio bar, or stroll RiverWalk to see the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge lit up at night.

Stay longer: Extend your getaway with a hotel stay.
