Headless Horseman Hayride Ulster, N.Y. Just a short car ride from Sleepy Hollow -- the inspiration for Washington Irving's famous story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" -- this small town in New York puts a terrifying twist on the traditional hayride. The one-mile journey winds through acres of gloomy woods, full of sinister scenes and creepy characters lurking behind the bushes. The hair-raising ride culminates with an appearance from the Headless Horseman himself.
Sleepy Hollow, NY. There's just something about this unique place that I love, make it's all the black trees, the cemeteries, or it's the Headless Horseman that you can hear throughout the night running the streets..
