Behold the beautiful month of June! The days are longer and warmer but not yet scorching, and nature is dressed in a bright shade of green. Opportunities to explore our state's great outdoors abound at Connecticut Trails Weekend, part of the National Trails Day celebration. So put on your hiking boots and make a day of it.
Literary-minded families can enjoy a book sale or all the adventures planned for Tom Sawyer Day at The Mark Twain House. In New London County, you can let loose at the four-day Cajun Zydeco Festival at Strawberry Park.
If you'd rather stay indoors, you can get crafty at Home Depot's Kids' Workshop. Or peruse our jam-packed Connecticut Summer Fun Guide and let your kids plan a few family outings.
Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have a wonderful weekend. Be sure to check out our Event Calendar for more kid-friendly activities throughout the state. And if you're still figuring out summer, see our list of camps that still have openings.
