Connecticut in the Winter

Conneticuitinthewinter

There’s no reason to stay cooped up in the house this Winter, when there’s tons of fantastic opportunities for fun in the State of Connecticut. Whether you enjoy indoors or outdoor fun, or if you’re looking for active play or delicious food, Connecticut has tons of fun possibilities available for you. Here are just a handful.

 

Snow and Shore

Even when it’s not swimming weather, the shore of Connecticut can be an amazing Winter escape. You have the beaches all to yourself for blissful walks at sunset, and amazing luxury resorts like Saybrook Point Inn are available at discounted rates where you can enjoy amazing spas, views, and food.

 

If skiing is more your cup of tea, we recommend visiting Mohawk Mountain, Mount Southington, Ski Sundown, Powder Ridge, or the Woodbury Ski Area for amazing slopes unrivaled on the East coast.

 

Air and Water

If you’re interested in aviation, visit the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks – which is one of the best aviation museums in the entire United States. Visit the museums three large hangars and inspect over 80 vintage airplanes, helicopters, amphibious vehicles, jets, or racing airplanes throughout history.

 

If you’re interested in the water, we recommend visiting the Maritime or Mystic Aquariums where you can see sharks, seals, otters, sea turtles, jellies, or penguins.

 

Hiking and Food

If you’re interested in a beautiful hike, Connecticut has tons of options even in Winter. If the weather serves, check out the over eight-hundred miles controlled by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association – with acres of beautiful pristine forests offering a natural escape.

If you want your trail to be more along the lines of fine dining than acorns and leaves, check out the Connecticut Wine, Beer, or Chocolate Trails – depending on your taste and hankerings.

 

Culture

We highly recommend seeing a concert at Norfolk or Infinity Hall which offer cozy, beautiful, and splendid music, food, and entertainment with a packed schedule full of amazing performers. For a historical treat, visit the 1874 Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, where the eponymous author lived for over 17 years, and where he wrote some of his most iconic novels including the Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

 

Art

We recommend visiting the brand new Yale University Art Gallery which offers paintings by esteemed artists such as Picasso, Monet, and van Gogh. The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art also has fantastic galleries – over thirty two in total! – and a particularly great Contemporary wing. If you have more Continental tastes, the New Britain Museum of American Art has paintings by all the famous American painters, from Wyeth to O’Keeffe.
