Looking for the best things to do in Connecticut this Memorial Day Weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your schedule.

Fairs, festivals, and parades - it must be Memorial Day Weekend! This weekend is filled with celebrations of all shapes and sizes. Head to Wethersfield to check out the annual Memorial Day Heritage Weekend, head off into the sunset with the Maritime Aquarium, or have some good old-fashioned fun at the Carnival at Danbury Fair Mall. For a laid-back outing, plan the perfect beach day at one of these Family Friendly Local Beaches

The long weekend is the perfect time to park the family at a Drive-In Movie Theater, go Eco-Exploring at Connecticut Beaches, or visit one of 8 Great Theme Parks in New England.
