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.

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.

March Farms

Reviewed By Cameron06820 - Darien, Connecticut

We've been coming to March Farms for over a decade for blueberry picking and have never been disappointed

Now they've added a corn maze and kiddie animal petting. Great to see them thriving now into their second century!

The store sells local produce and baked goods with a great selection and decent prices.

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.

Mine Hill Preserve

Reviewed By lovetotravelCt - ct

The hiking trails are relatively easy other than tree roots in many places. The information about the mines and mining activities were fascinating. The smelters that remain are in good condition and were interesting to see. Worth going to if you are in the area.

Hawk Ridge Winery

Reviewed By Ntngale59 - Watertown, Connecticut

First time here and have fallen for the beauty. People sitting outside brought their children and leashed dogs. They brought tables and chairs and picnic wares! Cannot say enough great things about this gem. We will visit again with a picnic basket, and some chairs. The music was wonderful and scenery spectacular. Oh, and the wine.....just delicious!

Flanders Nature Center

Reviewed By CaptainMorgan1663 - Danbury, Connecticut

My family and I enjoy hiking the trails at the nature preserve. There are some nice hikes through the woods and good look-outs over ponds. The maple sugar shack is fantastic, with tours during the season (check the website, but usually Feb-Mar). They collect their own sap on-site and have a still. The syrup is delicious!

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.

The Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden

Reviewed By Rosslyn H - New York

Carolyn Woolsey Ferriday, the protagonist of the recent book, "The Lilac Girls" donated the house and grounds to Connecticut Landmarks for use as a museum.
There is a small dedicated staff that is helpful. Guided tours are available. Our guide, Nikki, was thorough and cheerful for about an hour. Inside the house (many of the furnishings are of the period but not original to the owners), the tour includes the library, reception room, hall upstairs hall and Ms. Ferriday's bedroom. Photography is allowed without a flash. There are photos of Ms. Ferriday and one can see her memorabilia (her wooden shoes, notebooks and French honors) . The home, built in the late 1700's is in woeful need of repairs in and out - water damage to wallpaper, etc. I planned my trip to see the lilacs in bloom and was disappointed that there were not that many lilacs. There are several varieties and they were in bloom in May. There are special activities planned with the author of "The Lilac Girls." Check the events section of their website. Overflow parking is on the grass - so if you go after a heavy rain, plan accordingly.
