Bishop's Orchards is tough to describe. There is a small supermarket with an incredible variety of fresh produce (besides apples), baked good, wines, meats, frozen items as well as meals ready to heat and sandwiches. Outside they have a seasonal floral market, animals, and pick your own produce that changes with the season.
Easy on and off Exit 57 of I-95 in CT. Just follow the Wine Tour signs.

Earlier this summer we watched the sunset at the point and saw they did Thimble Islands tours, so when we did a stay vacation, we went and was not disappointed. It was a beautiful day and got to see the homes that are on the Islands with the history of the Islands. Highly recommend.

Luckily I spend time in Madison several times a year and RJ Julia's is always a highlight. The selection beats all for fiction, the staff recommendations are spot on and I always find titles I've not come across in my book adventures. I have to limit my visits or my annual book budget will be blown. I read e books but nothing compares to a wonderful paper book from RJ Julia

we liked this place a lot last year but found the porta potties to be gross. I guess going on a weekday was why one was clean this trip. That aside, the apple picking is lovely with the farm animals, pumpkins, little store with great pies and ice cream stand. Our grandson loved it. It is smaller and quieter than Bishops which is just 2 exits further.

My wife and I, who are both 69, recently enjoyed an amazing experience with Shoreline Segway. Our instructor/guide, Devlin, made the experience all that it could have been. He spent as much time as we needed in the parking lot to be sure that we were completely comfortable before heading out. Since this was our first Segway ride we were both a little apprehensive but Devlin alleviated our unspoken concerns with his patience and positive attitude. After about 15 minutes we were all comfortable and ventured out through beautiful, historic Guilford al the way to the ocean. There were a few areas where we rode in the bike lane or on a sidewalk but we also had lots of open spaces with a carefree ride. About half way through we got off our Segways to stretch a bit and wander around an historic area. Guilford is beautiful in and of itself but Devlin enhanced the experience for us. Shoreline Segway is a "don"t miss" in Guliford.

We had a nice morning, cruising through the Thimble Islands. We were on the middle sized boat as the big boat was not cruising that day. The wait can be long and hot but the cruise is very entertaining and informative, Fun Day!

Sandy beach ideal for walking.
Fun, interactive nature center. There is a large Osprey nesting station outside the nature center. Wide, clean, well maintained beach. Beautiful sunset. The beach was uncrowded and there were several bicyclists riding in the park. Clean restrooms.

The Henry Whitfield State Museum is the site of Connecticut's oldest house -- the Whitfield House was built in 1639 for the Reverend Henry Whitfield, one of the founders of Guilford. Now a museum for over 100 years, self-guided tours include three floors of antique furnishings and local artifacts, an introductory exhibit "The Old Stone House," as well as changing exhibits in the Visitor Center and displays in the Education Building. No admission is required for visiting the gift shop or using the research library. The museum hosts special events throughout the year, culminating in the annual Firelight Festival the second Friday after Thanksgiving.
Although the house has been changed over the years by "restorers" and others, it is a wonderful way to learn the story of life in the early European colonies. Well-furnished with antique artifacts, one can get a real sense of early life here. There are...MoreThank you for taking the time to review our museum! We really appreciate the feedback and have discussed it with our docents to prevent errors like this one from happening again.

One of my favorite places to hang out with friends any day of the week! On a nice summer day it's great to be outside by the river. I have also been there in the winter, and it's just as fun inside, cozy by the fire. Although it's not my favorite beer, they always have a good variety, with something for everyone. Cheers!

Meigs Point Nature Center is an exciting and vital environmental learning center open to all ages at Hammonasset Beach State Park. The Nature Center is host to a variety of native animals, including: turtles, snakes, amphibians, crabs and fish. Most of the animals at the Nature Center cannot be released because of previous previous injuries or for other reasons, but are well cared for.
My kids love learning about nature not only from exhibits but from knowledgeable volunteers that know the questions and make facts interesting for the kids. We go in every time it's open but go to the website the Nature Center has different hours for the Fall and Winter seasons.
