Experience the Wonderful Outdoors with These Fantastic Activities

Enjoy the coastal charms of New England and tons of natural beauty in Connecticut all year round. There’s plenty to do here for anyone and everyone, and that ranges from adrenaline-pumping activities such as hiking, wakeboarding, and biking to tamer ones such as taking a stroll in the park, barbecuing and exploring outdoor markets. In fact, we’ll love for you to get out there and have the time of your life, so we’ve listed down our top favorite outdoor activities you should definitely take a look at:

Hiking at Mount Riga State Park

Home to Bear Mountain, the tallest mountain in Connecticut, you’ll get to enjoy a marvellous hike with a great view of New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. If you’re new to hiking, just take note that it’s much to do with endurance and knowing how to pace yourself. Overall though, if you start out early enough, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the entire journey up and down in a day.

It may be indoors, but you’ll get to enjoy produce that comes from the great outdoors, so that’s a pretty good prize. Here, you can find tons of imported food items as well as plenty of other fresh produce from the surrounding area, so come on over to explore many delicious and interesting finds.
