  • I rode up to Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow for a day trip from NYC and the most beautiful part of my trip was the long and leisurely stroll through the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. The day I went was warmer than...  more »
  • This was the best part of our trip by far. Glad our tour at midnight was cancelled b/c we enjoyed exploring the cemetery on our own. The cemetery is larger than I anticipated. Over 85 acres and a very...  more »
  • I have been in many cemeteries of the world and of Sleepy Hollow has seemed one of the most beautiful I've seen. It is enormous, enormous really. The cemetery is high and you can download and get to the River, this area is beautiful. The tombs are scattered throughout the cemetery, even in areas of descent. In the river there is a bridge and recommend lowering up to low to be able to see the beauty of that area. In the cemetery you can visit the grave of Washington Irving, the writer of the short story the legend of Sleepy Hollow. This buried him and his family. If you go through the area, I recommend that you go to take a walk through the cemetery. It's wonderful

  • What a treasure trove of American history . We missed the guided tour, but were able to use a map of the grounds and Google to piece together a sense of the depth of the cemetery’s place in the lexicon of American history. The names of those interned here are a veritable who’s who of people you know you’ve read about in history books. I would highly recommend a tour; I’ve heard they are fantastic.
  • An American treasure to say the least! This entire area (Nyack, Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow) just oozes the magic of antiquated Americana. Viewing these grave sites puts such a perspective on historical context that one is compelled to stroll through this old hollowed ground, especially during Halloween!
  • Gorgeous place for a nice quiet walk in nature and to see vivid faliage in late October/early November.
  • Great place to go to during the month of October. The headless horseman makes it all worth the drive.
  • The lantern tour was amazing !!! The 7pm tour was just awesome. The tour guide Melissa was really fantastic !!!
