This morning a private minibus will pick us up at our hotel for a Hudson Valley Adventure. Our first stop is Tarrytown, otherwise known as the legendary Sleepy Hollow. Here, we will take a one-hour guided tour of the grand Lyndhurst Mansion with its sweeping location along the Hudson River. 

After the tour, we’ll visit downtown Tarrytown where you can browse through some quaint shops or have lunch on your own. 

Next, we drive further north along the river to visit a family-owned Alpaca farm where yarns are spun and wool items are created. We’ll even get to meet the alpacas and take photos! 

Our final stop of the day is Garnerville, previously known as Calicotown, home of a once-thriving textile mill that first produced calico prints and cloth to make Civil War and WW1 uniforms. Today, the former textile mill is a wonderful farm-to-table restaurant called Hudson’s Mill.
