If you love reading and classic tales, these are 7 must-have stops on your literary tour. I tend to spend a substantial amount of time with my nose in a book, and it is delightful for me to travel to the home towns of my literary heroes. Everyone knows there are phenomenal places to visit in Europe, but there is a plethora of towns in the US where great authors have lived that you can explore and gain a better grasp on the locations that inspired the stories you love! Make sure to check out these stops on your literary tour.
1. Sleepy Hollow, NY
One of the most amazing stops on your literary tour should be Sleepy Hollow, NY. Everyone knows the story of the Headless Horseman and Ichabod Crane. Sleepy Hollow NY is best visited around Halloween when the town is bustling with activity, including the annual haunted houses that will scare you like nothing else! If you can’t visit during the fall though, you can always visit the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery where you can wander about on your own, or take a guided tour to see the burial sites of Washington Irving, William Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie. You can also visit Sunnyside, Irving’s estate which is still filled with his possessions.
