I’ve been searching up a lot of lists lately that indicate different places around the world book lovers should visit. I noticed that many places or sites are located in my general area. In fact, one location, Sleepy Hollow from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving was not too far from me. So one morning I decided to give the town a visit.
Sleepy Hollow Cemetery The first place I got to see was the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery which is often visited by the spooky headless horseman. I managed to find Washington Irving’s grave, although it isn’t that hard to miss.
Kingsland Point County Park I initially wanted to visit either the Philipsburg Manor or Kykuit, but they were both closed on the particular day we went. Instead, we decide to take some down time and enjoy the warm weather at the park.
The Horseman To finish off the trip we grabbed some lunch at a local dinner that was very appropriately named.
Although I very much enjoyed my trip, I will like to come back to visit the two manors I didn’t get to see during this visit. I also think this would be one of the BEST places to visit during Halloween. Perhaps a future blog post?
