Tarrytown Things to Do

  • LYNDHURST

    Trish at the last minute decided to bring me and Patrick on a day trip to Tarrytown. What a wonderful surprise this was especially since she brought me to see Lyndhurst, the mansion where Dark Shadows had been filmed way back when. I really enjoyed the tour, which lasted about 45 minutes. I wish I had been able to take pictures of the inside, but...

  • LYNDHURST

    Visiting Lyndhurst was a last minute decision for me and Richie and Patrick. This was a real treat for us all, not just because the mansion was the back drop for one of my and Richie's favorite childhood shows, but also because the mansion itself has a very long and interesting history. The mansion itself went through various stages of...

  • Manhattan

    As Tarrytown is a small town, there isn't a great deal to do in the immediate vicinity. Our main past time was training it into Manhattan daily and spending our time there. The trains run about every 20 minutes from Tarrytown station straight to Grand Central, they start at about 6am and run till about 11pm. I think the frequency decreases the...

  • Best Breakfast Sandwich Ever!

    On the weekends, it's tight quarters cramming inside this establishment while you wait for the next available seat. The servers pay close attention to who is next and make sure that you don't miss your turn. They are especially kind to their regulars including a blind man who comes in with his service dog.The breakfast sandwiches are so good, I...

  • Nice but Overpriced

    I chose this restaurant because of their pizza menu. My husband and I both ordered an individual pizza and an order of mixed (sweet potato and regular) fries. The pizzas were very good, but the sweet potato fries were shriveled and overcooked, so only the regular ones were edible. We shared a dessert and each had coffee. The above items plus three...

  • Arrogant

    The food is ok, but if you are looking for nice service, cross the road. They are very arrogant over there. Like in cheap restaurant, they just want to get ride of you so the next client can come in and expend money.

    The many historical attractions found in Tarrytown are definitely not right next to each other, so one must have a car in order to visit them all. The other thing about driving in the area is that you must be an offensive driver. Driving in these parts in not for the week of heart and the skiddish. In some places it is nearly impossible to make a left turn even if its an area where you can make a next turn. Be sure you know where you are going because there are some places along route 9 where you can't make a left turn making it nearly impossible to make a u-turn.

Tarrytown Warnings and Dangers

    Normally I really don't care about deer droppings being about, but in this case I think it is relevant. Before you let your little ones run about on the grounds of either Lyndhurst or Sunnyside, check about for deer poop. When we visited Lyndhurst this past Saturday, there were piles of deer poop all over the grounds. The problem with deep poop isn't just in the fact that it's poop. Deer poop means deer, which also means deer ticks.

    Favorite thing: If you are going to visit Lyndhurst on a weekend, you should go pretty early. There are 3 parking lots. Lot 1 is handicapped parking only. Lot 2 is withing walking distance of the mansion and lot 3 is out there, way out there. There aren't many spaces in lot 2 and it isn't paved. When we visited in March it wasn't too muddy, but I can only imagine how muddy it can be on a rainy spring day.
