A Trip to Tarrytown

Besides being in bed with a good book, what could be better than a trip to upstate New York on a rainy fall day? Just 45 minutes north of Harlem Tarrytown is a couple stops off the Metro-North Railroad. It is a charming little town that is very reminiscent of Stillwater MN. After a quick walk up to Main Street, you find yourself surrounded by darling storefronts drawn right from a storybook. It has just about everything you'd want in a small town; multiple coffeeshops, a vintage consignment store, ice cream shop, a post office, library and even a yarn store. What a perfect getaway to see some changing leaves and be inspired by the peace and quiet.
