An Unexpected Yet Hauntingly Beautiful Visitor Has Arrived In Connecticut This Winter

Only every few years is Connecticut blessed with these visitors from the far North during the winter. The ghostly white snowy owls with their yellow eyes have been spotted in the air and on the ground in the Nutmeg State. Keep your eyes open, you never know where or when you might spot one of these hauntingly beautiful creatures.

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!
