As if a charming Main Street, a view of the Hudson River, and plenty of options for brunch (Sweet Grass Grill!) were not reason enough to visit Tarrytown, N.Y., a music hall and craft beer provide two more motives to linger. At one time, for some of us, Tarrytown just tended to be an add-on to a visit to nearby Sleepy Hollow (once known as North Tarrytown before that whole Washington Irving legend thing caught on), a place to stop for coffee or dinner after a visit to the Old Dutch Church or Philipsburg Manor.

But any place that has a music hall—indeed, one that was built in 1885 and still exists—is worth a little extra attention. In addition to providing a venue for musicians, Tarrytown Music Hall also provides an opportunity for movie buffs to see oldies on a big screen. I’ve managed to catch The Godfather—with audience members dressed as mobsters and molls—and the original House of Dark Shadows film with a houseful of vampire-wannabees. Dressing up for the theater is fun! So is stopping by the Oath for craft beer and a bite—either before or after the show.

Tarrytown (Exit 9) is the last exit on I-287 West before the Tappan Zee Bridge.
