  1. Capitol Theatre (Port Chester)
  2. The Capitol Theatre bills itself as “The Original Rock Palace,” and it’s not hard to understand why. Built in 1926 and designed by noted architect Thomas Lamb, the Capitol Theatre was originally used for movies and musical performances from its 10-piece orchestra. By the late 1960s, it was a music venue hosting acts like the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. It fell on hard times, but the Capitol Theatre came roaring back in 2012. It now hosts acts like Cheech and Chong, Sheryl Crow, Pearl Jam, and well, still Phil Lesh from the Grateful Dead.

  3. The Lyndhurst Mansion (Tarrytown)
  4. Built in 1838 and named after the linden trees found on the park-like estate, Lyndhurst in one of the oldest Gothic Revival mansions in the U.S. The estate was once the home of New York’s governor William Paulding. It’s now open for tours. Visit the Lyndhurst Museum on Thursdays through Sundays; it is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

  5. Philipsburg Manor (Sleepy Hollow)
  6. The Historic Hudson Valley society operates this manor house as a museum along with the nearby water mill and trading house. Built in 1693, the house belonged to one of the North Atlantic’s largest slave-trading families. It still contains many of the 17th and 18th-century furnishings, and historical re-enactors do the farm chores in the pre-American Revolution style that would have been seen at the manor in the 18th century.

  7. Playland Park (Rye)
  8. The amusement park has been serving the Westchester County area since 1928. Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987, it has a beach, water rides, and five roller coasters. Free concerts are offered each summer in July and August and fireworks shows on Friday nights.

  9. Rockefeller State Park Preserve (Sleepy Hollow)
  10. This nature preserve takes visitors through the foothills of the Hudson River. Fishing, birdwatching, and horseback riding are some of the favorite activities in this National Audubon Society Important Bird Area with more than 180 species of wild birds.

  11. Sleepy Hollow Cemetery
  12. Adjacent to the Old Dutch Burying Ground, this historic Westchester County cemetery is the final resting place of important New Yorkers including the writer Washington Irving. Formerly called Tarrytown Cemetery, the burial ground was changed to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in 1849 to posthumously honor the request of Irving.

  13. Untermyer Gardens (Yonkers)
  14. The Persian-style paradise garden incorporates a Greek amphitheater, statuary garden, water and rock features, and views of the Palisades and the Hudson River.

  15. Washington Irving's Sunnyside House (Irvington)
  16. The 10-acre estate was purchased by Irving in 1835. The Irving family lived in it until 1945, when it was purchased by the Rockefeller family for historical preservation. It’s been open to the public since 1947.

  17. Westchester Broadway Theatre (Elmsford)
  18. The dinner theatre offers a full season of musicals and plays as well as comedy shows and musical acts.
