Timed admission - varies.
Van Cortlandt Manor
$16; $12 children ages 3-17 (Saturdays: $20; $16); free children age 2 and younger
The tri-state area's biggest Halloween event returns for 22 nights. Meander through an 18th-Century riverside landscape and discover a breathtaking display - more than 5,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated Jack O' Lanterns! Tens of thousands of visitors saw last year's sold out Blaze. The elaborate walk-through event features original, atmospheric music, sound effects, and synchronized lighting. Stroll through the Tunnel O' Pumpkin Love, and emerge to the incredible sight of a gourd-filled Jack-in-the-Box springing up and bouncing around. Flying pumpkin ghosts soar above the lantern-lit path. All admissions are by timed ticket only, which must be purchased in advance at hudsonvalley.org or by calling 914-366-6900 (phone prices include $2/ticket surcharge).
Address: 525 S. Riverside Ave. Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520
At Van Cortlandt Manor, explore the stone manor house and brick ferry house, wander through the heritage gardens, and stroll down a quiet country road along the Croton River.
There, you'll experience the domestic life of a patriot family living in the years just after the American Revolution - the New Nation period.
