Walking/Shopping tour of historic Tarrytown
We’ll view the magical holiday lighting on Tarrytown’s charming Main Street, the Main Street of your memories and dreams – and of the movies. You’ll probably feel right at home since many movies you’ve seen have been filmed on this historic street. You can do some old-fashioned Christmas shopping in its unique independent stores while taking in its beauty, including a Tiffany stained glass window and the historic Queen Anne-style Tarrytown Music Hall.
A Very Duchess Holiday Tour at Lyndhurst Mansion
Described as one of the “Ten Best Historic Holiday Tours” by USA Today, Lyndhurst goes all out during the holidays with “A Very Duchess Holiday.” Lyndhurst is elaborately adorned with an over-the-top display of holiday ornaments but we also pay homage to a real French duchess, Anna Gould, the Duchess of Talleyrand, the last owner of Lyndhurst. For the last month of the year, we bring out rarely seen children’s toys, holiday dishes, silver, jewels, and clothes that belonged to the Duchess to create vignettes of holiday presents and baubles. This is a once-a-year opportunity to see many of the Goulds’ glittering possessions that are usually tucked away.
Dinner at Tarry Tavern
Nestled in the center of Historic Tarrytown’s Main Street, Tarry Tavern is the renewal of the classic American tavern. Elegant English red oak paneling, warm and butter-colored walls, and a richly lacquered bar welcome guests. The well-displayed plenitude of copper pots, farm field paintings, fresh fruits, and seasonal flower arrangements give Tarry Tavern the feel of a country farmhouse, albeit one that is sparkling, bright, and cheery. The menu showcases the bounty of the Hudson Valley, largely inspired by the seasons and local produce. Their selection of 12 draft brews, mostly craft and predominantly American, as well as their thorough wine list will be able to please even the most discerning palate.
Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle: It’s Christmas at 221B Baker Street, and you’re following Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on a trip through Victorian London (played by the inimitable Lyndhurst Mansion), on the trail of a classic mystery. Together with the famous detectives, we’ll explore the mansion room-by-room as we’re drawn deeper into the secrets of the Blue Carbuncle.
