Fall Foliage Staycation Ideas
As a Brand Ambassador for the CT Chevy Girl on the Go program, for the past month I’ve criss-crossed the State of Connecticut for Girlfriend Getaways and have driven almost 1000 miles in a new 2011 Chevy Malibu.
As a life-long resident of Connecticut, even though it’s a small state (but larger than Rhode Island) there are many burgs, boroughs, villages and towns I haven’t been to in my lifetime.
A brand spanking new car, fully equipped with OnStar navigation so I wouldn’t have to rely on the Hubster for directions; Bluetooth hands-free calling; heated seats (hey, it gets nippy here in the a.m. come fall); sunroof for when it warms up in the afternoon and; gas in the tank on somebody else’s dime – gave me reason to get out and dine where the locals dine, and re-visit towns I hadn’t been to in oh, let’s just say a very-long-time.
Scenic Connecticut Photography
As a photojournalist, I enjoy taking scenic photography.
A favorite book that I like to keep in the car is from the Off the Beaten Path series, Off the Beaten Path Connecticut – it has some fantastic suggestions for Connecticut Getaways.
Have you visited Connecticut on a Daycation Getaway to see any of our hidden treasures? Many of the spots I’ve chosen would make excellent field trips if you home-school!
