Tarrytown is a beautiful little river town up the Hudson. It offers a lot for families to do on the weekends, there are endless events to go to. The schools are great, and people are very friendly. Tons of restaurants to explore and a short ride to Midtown. Also located near trails for walking and hiking on the weekends. Would recommend to a family looking for a good work/life balance

This town is peaceful and quite. Neighbors are nice, the community that Tarrytown has is welcoming and warm. Another excellent part is that the background of sleeping beauty was from Tarrytown.
Love growing up here and going to school here, great for families with kids. So many things to do and places to visit. Great food scene on Main Street with many events happening throughout the year here like a craft fair, food fair and so many others.
