The Katonah Museum of Art has just three galleries, but it hosts six major exhibitions a year. From March 29 through June 28, view 65 works on paper by Roy Lichtenstein. The interactive Learning Center offers kids a studio of their own and a daily roster of arts and crafts.

Tour the John Jay Homestead, where the first chief justice of the Supreme Court lived his last 28 years. Restored to 1820s grandeur and largely furnished with original pieces, the estate also includes a gallery with rotating exhibits and 62 acres of woodland, meadows, and gardens on which to wander and picnic.

Explore 4,315 acres at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, Westchester County’s largest park. Take a brisk walk or a 5.6 mile hike; camping, fly fishing, and picnic areas are also available.
