Lisa loves animals and has dogs, rats, cats, guinea pigs, and snakes. She is passionate about animal rescue and live music - traveling across the country to see a favorite band is a pretty regular occurrence! Being out hiking in the woods enjoying the scenery with her beloved dogs is another favorite hobby, and also checking out the Pokemon Go scene in whatever city she happens to be in at any given time (coffee and dog leash in hand).

Here at Only In Your State, we absolutely love trails in Connecticut. We regularly feature wooded hikes through the Nutmeg State’s forests, and paved trails through our wonderful parks. But if you’re looking for the ultimate warm weather adventure, does it get any better than following a water trail? If you think about it, that’s basically what a river is… and when it comes to rivers in Connecticut, the mighty Connecticut River is king. This 406-mile body of water that shares our state’s name is the longest river in New England. While you may not be quite up for paddling the entirety of the river, picking a small portion and doing a loop in a kayak or canoe is an absolute blast and a great way to enjoy the scenery and get some exercise at the same time.
