Sleepy Hollow, NY: 5 Towns with Spooky Names

Sleepy Hollow, NY: 5 Towns with Spooky Names

The setting of the famous Washington Irving short story, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," this village in southern New York embraces its literary legend. Take a lantern-lit walking tour (given April through November) through Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where Irving is laid to rest, or check out a famous spot from Dark Shadows: the vampire Barnabas Collins' crypt. Things really get creepy in October, though, when the Horseman's Hollow "haunted experience" transforms a local historic home (pictured) into a terrifying tour through the Headless Horseman's Sleepy Hollow. Horseman's Hollow is only for the most intrepid thrill-seekers, but events like the Sleepy Hollow Haunted Hayride are available for those looking for Halloween fun without heart-stopping terror -- though don't be surprised if this hayride has a Headless Horseman sighting!
