While a dip in one of our beautiful pools is always refreshing, sometimes a day at the beach is the perfect weekend outing. There is something very soothing about toes in the sand, sitting under an umbrella and enjoying the view of endless blue water. Connecticut is blessed with a beautiful shoreline and some incredible lakes for day or weekend trips. For information about Long Island Sound and Lake Beaches, visit this helpful Connecticut Visitor Website.

Plan ahead before the mercury climbs into the uncomfortable temperature zones this summer. The governor announced his “Passport to Parks” program to provide Connecticut residents greater access to state parks. If you have Connecticut state license plates, entrance to state parks will be free with the Passport to Parks, learn more here.

With your Passport to Parks secure, it is time to start planning some outings.
