Summer is a good time to visit Connecticut because the weather is warm and there are lots of fun festivals to go to. Here are some of my favorite things to do during the summer in Connecticut:
Fruit-Picking: You can go and pick peaches and strawberries and raspberries and blueberries in almost any part of Connecticut. There are plethora of farms; I like Bishop’s Orchards in Guilford, CT for its vicinity to New Haven and the added bonus of apple cider donuts at the farm market.
Buttonwood Farm in Griswold, CT: They grow a giant sunflower field for charity, which blooms at the end of July. I get really happy just walking through the farm being surrounded by sunflowers. They also make sunflower ice cream, which is pretty delicious.
