Warm days and cool nights start the sweet maple syrup season. Right about now, sugar houses across the Nutmeg State are busy collecting and evaporating clear sap into tasty, golden syrup. The traditional maple sugaring season extends from late February until late March. Here, we share the latest information on maple sugaring in Connecticut with activities and tours that families will love.
