With historic buildings along tree-lined streets, gently rolling hills, and scenic views of Long Island Sound, Rye is perfect small-town New England––only a short drive from New York City.
Sit down with a book at the Rye Free Reading Room, or tour the Square House, where George Washington once stayed. You can visit the boyhood home of John Jay, New York State’s only founding father, and check out the local art scene at the Rye Arts Center––only a few minutes away from our hotel in Rye.
Wander Rye Nature Center’s 47 acres of wildlife preserve, and tee off near our Rye accomodations at the Will Ridge Golf Club. Soak up the sun on the beach at Rye Town Park; while you’re in the area, take in views of the Long Island Sound at Seaside Johnnie’s Restaurant. At Crawford Park, examine the flora in sunken, rose and wildflower gardens, and ride the historic Dragon Coaster at America’s only Art Deco amusement park, Playland.
Give in to your Manhattan cravings and take the brief commuter train ride to New York City, where you can spend the day seeing the sights or shopping in the Big Apple, before returning to your Rye hotel room for the night.
