Things to do in Connecticut
Connecticut is packed with great things and adventures for families, kids or just adults. Taking hikes, visiting museums, a drive to the beach, or museums are just a few ideas to get your trip planning started. Here is my top list (not in consecutive order) of things to do in Connecticut to unwind and become grounded yet again.
1. Head to a spa and get pampered. Sitting by the pool or jacuzzi with a drink in hand (drink of preference of course) is a great way to decompress. Being able to do so outdoors with a great view is an added plus.
a. Water’s Edge Resort & Spa – Westbrook CT
b. Egia Day Spa – Centrally located in the heart of New Canaan, CT, this spa is privileged to offer clients an exceptional, totally-organic spa experience. Tucked away in a lovely Victorian home, tastefully restored to provide a soothing backdrop for there exclusive treatments/services.
2. Pick your own crops. This is a great way to get the kids in nature and valuing fruits and vegetables.
a. Silverman's Farm - Easton CT. Pick your own fruits, farm animals and country market will fill your day at Silvermans Farm.
b. Blue Jay Orchards -
3. Walking through the sand is a favorite activity for most. The warm sand beneath our toes is a natural homeopathic remedy for great calming.
a. Silver Sands - Milford CT. Silver Sands State Park is a public recreation area located on Long Island Sound in the city of Milford, Connecticut. The state park consists of 297 acres of beach, dunes, restored salt marsh, open areas and woods as well as the 14-acre bird sanctuary of Charles Island.

b. Sherwood Island State Park – Westport CT. Sherwood Island State Park is a public recreation area on the shore of Long Island Sound in the Greens Farms section of Westport, Connecticut. The state park offers swimming, fishing, and other activities on 238 acres of beach, wetlands, and woodlands.
4. Museums are a great way to connect with art and open up a new path for learning.
a. Aldrich – Ridgefield CT. Founded on Ridgefield's historic Main Street in 1964, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is one of the few non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States, and plays an important role in the exhibition of cutting-edge art. -
