Most people know Caramoor for its spectacular theaters but not many people take some time before the concert to explore the landscape that surrounds them. We get it, sometimes it can seem overwhelming with the amount of acreage that Caramoor sits on. So to help you out, we have asked the Caramoor staff a simple question: “Where is your favorite Caramoor spot?” For a lot of us, when we need to take a break from the computer or if we feel that we need to take a breath of air after a long meeting, we tend to go to a favorite spot for a bit of quiet and serenity.
Take a peek at this list for some ideas the next time you visit Caramoor!

Since the founding two decades ago of a summer program dedicated to early 19th century Italian opera, the beautiful Caramoor estate has become a sort of Bel Canto Bayreuth. Many local opera fans have made an annual summer pilgrimage to hear rising stars and established artists perform repertory staples and rarities by Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, and Verdi.
