There's a lot more to Roxbury than our restaurant, and this is truly a four-seasons area.  Read on for some of the many reasons to visit. . .
 
                                             Local Attractions

Roxbury has it's own website, which is a source of lots of good info about the area: http://www.roxburyny.com
 
But there are some attractions we'll tell you more about right here.  
 
The Roxbury Arts Group would be a credit to any town but is an astounding organization for a town this size.  It has frequent programs, especially during the summer, devoted to theater, music and film as well as art exhibitions.  Here's a link: http://www.roxburyartsgroup.org
 
Roxbury is also home base for the Roxbury Nine, a vintage baseball team that plays games according to the rules as they were when baseball was still young in the 19th century, and they dress accordingly.  On summer weekends they have  frequent games in Kirkside Park, within home run distance of our restaurant, so you can stop by before or after the game.   It's a delightful way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

If you're into mountain biking, you should pay a visit to Plattekill--a fabulous but under publicized ski area in the winter and one of the northeast's premier mountain biking center in the summer.   It hosts frequent competitions and also rents out bikes for more casual enthusiasts on non competition weekends: http://www.plattekill.com.
 
Then there is Woodchuck Lodge and  Burroughs Memorial Field, dedicated to the memory and legacy of famed 19th century naturalist John Burroughs, a Roxbury native who was inspired in his life and writings by growing up amid the natural beauty that is so central to this area.  The link: http://www.roxburyny.com/main/hist/woodchuck.html.
 
Additionally, just behind our restaurant, and accessible by a bridge in the school parking just North of the restaurant, as well as elsewhere further north, is Kirkside Park, a lovely open space with trails leading up the mountain, playing fields, tennis courts, and beautiful Adirondack style bentwood bridges over the East branch of the Delaware River.
