For a state as small as Connecticut, it’s amazing how many lovely spots we have to get out and enjoy nature! We are blessed with 139 state parks within our borders, plus two national parks. One park not only boasts the typical trails and beauty you’d expect from a state park in Connecticut, but it’s also got a fascinating history as well. Gay City State Park near Hebron and Bolton covers more than 1,500 acres. It’s home to unique ruins from when the area was a 19th-century mill town.

 Have you visited Gay City State Park? It’s a really neat ghost town in Connecticut with some great recreational opportunities.

Check out the Connecticut state website for more information about the park.
