This place is awesome! This is my second time back and I'll keep returning! The thought and effort put into these rooms is incredible. I Have now done , "gold digger" and "Lenny hawkins sold his soul to play the blues." Two completely different rooms both very challenging and so much fun. It gets you thinking and laughing. Great activity for school, work, date nights!

The wine servers inside were friendly and informative, they even told us about a distillery down the road. We enjoyed the wines quite a bit and...MoreThank you so very much Denise for taking time to review Sunset Meadow Vineyards and give us 5 stars.

White Memorial Conservation Center

Reviewed By Nancy S - South Berwick, Maine

The boardwalk after walking a little trail to get to it off the road is well worth the hike. White Memorial is such a beautiful, peaceful, soulful visit as you walk around the waters edge, taking in spectacular views from every vantage point. Photographers come in and set up their tripods and click away. People either walk the entire boardwalk by themselves, reflecting the beginning or the end of the day, solitude or with a friend. Some bring their dogs on a leash and enjoy the brisk walk, either way, whatever your preference is, it is well worth the visit of this little jewel in Litchfield.

Topsmead State Forest

Reviewed By samuel33 - connecticut

I have lived locally for all my life and never knew this place existed. We went for an approximate two mile walk round trip. There is much more area to explore on the next trip to this beautiful place. It seems to be relatively easy walking. I really liked it. The only thing I didn't like was the horse manure we had to step to avoid. There was so much on the road that my companion asked if horses did anything other than poop. Luckily there were plenty of other areas where the horses hadn't been. They appeared to have only been where there were signs posted "no horses".

Burr Pond State Park

Reviewed By College Bowl - Wilmington, North Carolina

Quietly beautiful, this hidden gem would have pleased Thoreau immensely as one can appreciate nature's transcendental solitude. A hike around the lake (3.5 mile circumference) could convert a non-believer to pantheism. A small beach, boat launch and day camping facilities fill the bill for the whole family.

Great location for anyone looking for a spiritual escape. Authentic grotto sculpture in addition to religious statuary & the stations of the cross. Plenty of parking & places to sit & rest. Free admission. A gift shop with an extensive collection of faith-inspired merchandise. Unique place to do some soul-searching or silent prayer. There are also services & seasonal presentations. Unique treasure in the heart of the Litchfield Hills.
