The Small Connecticut Town Of East Hampton That Transforms Into A Pumpkin Wonderland Each Year

Connecticut is full of haunted attractions designed to incite fright during the Halloween season. But for those who are younger and not ready for the monsters and mayhem or those adults who prefer the not-so-scary side of the holiday, you’ll want to find someplace a little tamer. Each year, the town of East Hampton turns into a pumpkin wonderland and it’s the perfect destination for a family outing. Pumpkinland U.S.A. is a non-scary village of pumpkinheads that comes to life for six weeks each fall and it is full of Halloween magic for even the youngest of visitors.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
