10 Places In Connecticut You Must See Before You Die
There are a lot of things I want to do before I die. Like adopt a polar bear. Or buy an island. But there are some general things you absolutely have to do if you’re in Connecticut before you die. Let’s see if you’ve visited all the places to see in Connecticut…
1. Every museum on The Art Trail.
Most of these museums fall in Fairfield county, but some are in Hartford, New Haven, and New London counties too. All you need is an art pass!
2. A beach along the Gold Coast.
I recommend Walnut Beach in Milford but you have a number of options. And definitely grab some seafood while you’re there.
3. Mark Twain's House
Take a day to be in the shoes of a classic author while enjoying Hartford. This is great for a lunch date.
4. The Quiet Corner
Book a bed and breakfast in Windham county during the spring or fall and be prepared for ultimate relaxation and long incredible walks.
5. The Thimble Islands
Take a ferry ride around these islands in Branford and enjoy a nice dinner on the water. You’ll feel like you’re in the tropics.
6. Northwest Park
Located in Windsor, this place is beautiful and the trails aren’t too difficult. The kids will love hiking, playing, and petting animals.
7. Plainville's Hot Air Balloon festival
Plan a picnic and spend the day watching balloons pass by. This rare sight is a whole lot of fun.
8. Route 169
Voted one of America’s most outstanding scenic byways, it’s one of those drives you just have to make. The 32 miles from Woodstock to Lisbon are just stunning!
9. Woodbury Antique Shows
Woodbury is known as the antiques capital of Connecticut. So if you love looking at old stuff (and who doesn’t?) you have to plan a visit.
10. The Durham Fair
This country fair has been running for almost 100 years now, and attracts more than 200,000 visitors every September with its good food and live music.
