Two Roads Brewing Company

Reviewed By hunter112 - Pawleys Island, South Carolina

I have never, ever in my life been welcomed more quickly or thoroughly by a brewery as I was here. Ryan told us the magnificent history of the building (it used to be a machine shop) and how the owners of the brewery put it all together just five years ago, it's a captivating tale.

The brews were marvelous, but I knew they were good from having tried them at Ambulance Brew House in Nanuet, NY, but they were so very, very fresh right at the brewery. It was stunning to look at, too, the artwork on the fermenters, the bar counter being made of recovered materials from the machine shop, and a beautiful sunset in the background. It was like "Beer in the Museum"!

We've already plotted our return on the way back.

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! We are happy to help you start celebrating the traditions of the Christmas season!

Silverman's Farm

Reviewed By ParkerSturbridge

If you want glitz, animals, hayrides and all the trappings that come with this 'farm' experience, then come here. But be prepared and forewarned, especially in the Fall season. This place is a zoo.....and not just because there are some animals there. They have high quality produce, baked goods, preserves, etc., but way overpriced. Do yourself a favor....check it out with the kids....then go either up or down the road a bit to one of the other farm venues and buy your things there. Lets glitz, more authentic and you don't have to pay to see the animals.

Silver Sands State Park

Reviewed By ItIsSunny

Parking is free and, after leaving the parking lot, the paved & wooden walkways are well-kept. The walkways do drop abruptly into the sand, causing an unexpected drop & twisted ankle if you're not watching. The only toilet was a portable type in the parking lot. There were a few benches from which one could sit and watch the beautiful shoreline. Nice place to walk. Beaches were well-maintained.

Veracious Brewing Company

Tess and Mark have written two books on brewing beer and have operated Maltose Express for 27 years. They brew many styles of beer and now have 19 beers on tap in their tap room. Please stop in and try world-class beers in a local setting.

Reviewed By LandBPres16 - Cheshire, Connecticut

We recently visited Veracious Brewing Company on a Saturday afternoon. We were drawn by the fact that this particular brewery has been noted as one of the best in the state. Along with a family member we shared two flights allowing us to sample eight different brews. Each was unique and enjoyable. At the time we visited the place wasn't crowded, but they have seating for many. We opted to go to a local restaurant for lunch but Veracious encourages you to bring your own food or to arrange for delivery from one of the menus they have on hand from local restaurants. Veracious sells growlers which can be refilled on site for those who live locally, but we were disappointed that it wasn't possible to purchase bottled beer. While it is a bit of a trek from our home, we hope to return soon with friends for an evening out.

Beardsley Zoo

Reviewed By JuniorKP - New Castle, Indiana

Stopped here for a quick break. I ended up staying a couple hours. It's not a big zoo but it is a fun one. Many exhibits had glass observation points and many places to escape the rain (it was raining). This would be good for small children as a learning experience and just have fun.

ROCKIN' JUMP is a very popular and unique venue for birthday parties and family gatherings.

Reviewed By Gunksman - Stratford, Connecticut

This is a fun place to take the kids-- especially great for a kid's party. It's a series of areas that have "trampoline floors" for jumping, playing basketball and for little kids to bounce around. They have a concession for food you'd expect in a cheap concession. The kids have a great time as do parents watching the antics. It's done by the hour or a little longer for parties. I think they have parties where you can supply the food, but not sure of that.

It's worth while.

Westfield Trumbull Mall

Reviewed By Anthony G - Trumbull, Connecticut

The past couple of years have seen the Trumbull Mall complete a nice transformation. There was certainly a stretch for 5+ years that the mall became a hangout for people who definitely weren't there to shop. Safety was becoming a concern for some, and the mall was becoming less and less desirable. As mentioned, though, things have changed for the better and the mall is back to being a place that you can go for several hours to shop. As well, the selection of stores has vastly improved.

Bridgeport Bluefish Baseball Club

Reviewed By KRUIZ8204 - Bridgeport, Connecticut

I've watched a few Bluefish games. It's a nice place to spend an evening -- kids and adults alike seem to like it there. There's a few vendors from ice cream to craft beers and food. The prices are reasonable for a ballpark. It's so nice to see the trains go back in the background and watch the sun set.
