Cruising Connecticut With a Picnic Basket


Cruising Connecticut gives a detailed description of forty-two diverse destinations with activities suitable to a variety of ages and interests. Readers will be introduced to new places as well as get updates on well-known tourist spots. The length of time an activity takes also varies, because sometimes our schedule allows us to indulge in an entire day of fun, while other times we just need a breather, a two-hour interlude away from the routine in order to get re-energized.

Let's Go Cruising

“From the moment I park the car and step outside, I know it is going to be a memorable day. The sun is shining and the resident mocking bird greets and serenades me all the way to the Carriage House. Inside, friendly staff members are welcoming, and the Bowen’s 'company drink', pink lemonade, has been prepared for thirsty visitors."

“Even during the short walk from the parking area to Heckscher Farm, we imagine we could be in Puddlyby-on-the-Marsh, the town where Doctor Dolittle’s practice became so successful after his parrot, Polynesia, taught him animal language. It is fascinating to watch the interaction between visitors and the animals and, yes, the animals do talk back.”

“One hour after game time—I finished my research almost one hour ago and want to go home. I am still looking for my car. That “Tips from Tailgaters” suggestion on Joe’s website, the one about tying a helium-filled balloon to the antenna—it’s a good one.”
