A small town surrounded by wide-open pastures and thickets of sprawling oak trees, this sleepy town is a relaxing reprieve from urban life. Browse the antiques at the Lots of Time Shop, or take a stroll through the serene grounds of the wide-open Rosemont Cemetery.

No matter how you decide to fill your time in this rural town, while you’re here, a must-visit spot is The Pass restaurant, a delightfully unexpected dining destination housed in an old general store. Enjoy the creations of chef Matthew Ridgway, who balances sophistication and simplicity in each of the French-inspired dishes on his prix fixe menu, which changes every two weeks. The lineup could include anything from Hudson Valley guinea hen pot eau feau to poached Nantucket Bay scallops, preceded by foie gras mousse or veal sweet breads. For the ultimate experience, opt for the chef’s choice six-course discovery menu.
