I rented the mansion for my wife's Roaring 20's birthday party, and it could not have been a more perfect setting for the party. You don't even need to decorate the place, it has so much character. Like something out of a movie. It's no wonder so many people get their pictures taken here.

A nice countryside farm and gift store. Lots of different treats for sale, and it's a fine place to spend some time on an afternoon.

This park is for everyone! Families, couples, solo hikers, byciclers, dogs ponds and strollers! There are many different entrances and thus trails but they all can eventually lead towards water where you can fish or canoe or kayak. Great place to spend time :)

Top notch 4-screen movie theater playing new releases. Within walking distance of many good restaurants. Best part is their mission to provide meaningful employment to adults with special needs.

Edmond Town Hall Theater

Reviewed By Jeffrey T - connecticut

Great place to see a movie for a few dollars--free on the third Saturday night of the month (thanks Ingersol Motors!). Concessions are inexpensive and while you are there get lost in the building whether it be looking at the amazing paintings on the walls of the stairways or looking at the old gym filled with memories, or just poking around. Great building and the center of Newtown. When you go outside, look at the benches and what's written as well as checking out the plaque by the mailboxes.

Bridgewater Chocolate Factory and Factory Store

Reviewed By saltcreekct - Danbury, Connecticut

Always nice to have a local chocolate maker. They offer pre-made boxes or you can select and customize. Variety is good and quality is good too, though not as artisan as other places we have visited. Still, friendly help and a solid -- if pricey -- chocolate shop.

Putnam Memorial State Park

Reviewed By b w - Carver, Massachusetts

Peaceful with much flora and fauna and old trees. Sites are well marked and significance of revolutionary battles can be envisioned. Birds are numerous if you dabble in ornithologist skills. Bring binoculars. Dirt road. Free. About an hour to take time or longer

DiGrazia Winery

Reviewed By Neg156 - Litchfield, Connecticut

Visited this winery on Mother's Day. Winery is at the residence of the owners Dr. DiGrazia and his wife. Sat outside under the pergola next to the babbling fountain nearby, but there were other tables outside on the lawn too. Dr. DiGrazia poured our tasting. He was a wealth of information about the wine process, his life and the people he has met. I could have spent the whole day talking to him. Loved All of wines we tasted but my favorites were Anastasia's blush and Sweet Magnolia. I highly recommend this winery.

Friday 1/19/18 (Charles Esten) was my sixth visit to Ridgefield Playhouse. Each time, the entertainment has been exceptional. Most shows have been sold out. The audience (s) always get into the show, singing along, dancing in the aisles and generally having a great time. Bravo!
