This was a nice, clean state park. Unless you're into water sports there didn't seem to be much to do, but the scenery was nice.

Visited Quassy to ride Wooden Warrior many, many times. And we did. We rode in all the seats and had a great time. We also enjoyed many other rides in the park, including the free fall, paratrooper, bumper cars and more. This is a great...MoreThank you for the review and comments.

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.

Love the old barn and the artwork. Nice to have a little tour of them, sharing what each one is. The wine was enjoyable, one red and one white.

Promisek's Historic Garden

Reviewed By Nancy K - Southbury, Connecticut

A formal stonewalled garden designed by Beatrix Farrand in 1921, this garden was brought back to life in 1992. The stone walkways make browsing through the garden, a beautiful mixture of perennials and annuals, very easy. Be sure to go through the gate in the back to see the teardrop shaped pool, amphitheater, and pergola that were once used in the 1930s. Although officially only open on the last Sunday in June (CT Garden Day), this garden welcomes visitors who call ahead and make an appointment for a tour.

Off to our annual visit to Jones Farms to get our two Christmas tree. The season just opened and we were there early in the morning to get our trees. Best time to go to beat the post-Thanksgiving rush. The staff is always very helpful...MoreThanks for the summary Andres! It looks like you cover a lot of ground on your visit!

Shepaug Eagle Observation Area

Reviewed By nana1246 - Naugatuck, Connecticut

Went as part of a senior center outing. Plenty of parking , accomodations for wheelchairs if needed. Walk down a gravel slope , enter a shelter that comfortably fits 40 or 50. Stove going today. Eagles feed off the fish near the dam. (Nests in this area are rare). 2 "guides" giving out information and explanations of Eagle.s behavior. I would gladly go again...but dress for the weather.it can be nasty in February.

OEC Brewing

Reviewed By tigg189074 - Hartford, Connecticut

We've been to the brewery twice so far and each time the beers have been very good and definitely unusual. The place brews sour beers so as long as you enjoy sours and/or enjoy trying something different then this place is for you. The place is state of the art - one of the nicer breweries we've been to (definitely one of the nicest in CT). It didn't state on the website if you could bring your own food in, but while we were there people were eating so it looks like it's okay to do. The place is large with a bar seating area and a bunch of tables to sit at. The prices are higher than normal breweries, so just bare that in mind. We did a tasting of seven beers and it came to $17.50. They charge per tasting glass, so if one of the beers doesn't interest you - just skip it. The beers yesterday were all higher ABV so two people splitting one flight was more than enough.

Pretzels and chips were available for purchase as well as growler fills and guest bottles they have on hand.

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.
