In case that snow we saw on the news the other day wasn’t enough of a reminder, the holidays are fast approaching. If you like to give a bottle of something special as a gift, look no further than right here in Connecticut. Our state has a large and growing list of brewers, cideries, distillers and wineries making some really great, really interesting beverages. I want to tell you about two of them that we’ve heard about recently!!


Sunday is National Take-a-Hike Day, a great opportunity to get outside before the snow and cold really set in. There are hundreds of miles of scenic hiking trails throughout Connecticut, including fifty-one miles of the Appalachian Trail.

Here are just a few noteworthy towns and trails to consider for great hiking in Connecticut!
