Westchester County, New York: Scenic Countryside, Beautiful Homes, and Shopping
Though it’s just minutes from the northern tip of Manhattan, Westchester County provides a breath of fresh air for anybody seeking a break from the big city. Acres of unspoiled countryside surround gigantic estates, gardens, and quaint B&Bs. The regal Lyndhurst home in Tarrytown was named one of America’s Most Beautiful Mansions by Forbes. You’ll find another superlative in nearby Croton-on-Hudson, home of what was once the “tallest dam in the world.” If you happen to get bitten by the shopping bug while you’re in the area, make a beeline for Woodbury Common Premium Outlets.
