School’s out for summer and kids are loving life! Parents maybe not so much… But we are here to fix that! We know keeping kids busy and entertained all summer takes a lot of work, especially living in Connecticut, but we did our research and found a bunch of summer activities that both parents and kids will love!

Here’s our list of family fun-tivites!

  • Spend a day at Mystic Aquarium.

  • Explore New England’s woodland environment at Roaring Brook Nature Center.

  • Climb to the top of Castle Craig.
