From local craft brewers to a stately home-turned-restaurant, groups visiting Westchester County have many culinary options to choose from.
“Westchester County provides a perfect setting for corporate team building,” says Natasha Caputo, director of Westchester County Tourism & Film. “Beautiful farmland, historic estates and miles of outdoor trails, as well as world-class dining and exhilarating entertainment make Westchester an ideal destination.”
