You’d be hard pressed to find a fairy tale that didn’t feature gorgeous architecture and large, seemingly endless gardens. Harkness Memorial State Park fits the bill. With its expansive grounds, large estate and sculpted gardens, we couldn’t think of a place more likely to include a princess. It already has the birds and rabbits too, so if you know how to sing-talk to animals this is the spot. Check it out:

Harkness Memorial State Park is located at 275 Great Neck Rdoad (Rte. 213), Waterford, CT 06385.
