All Aboard the Pumpkin Patch Express

These rattling, toot-tooting relics are truly treasures across New England landscapes. Each time those vintage diesel locomotives come to life, you can hear that pitter patter of those train-loving little souls of ours. Their dome-cars with padded seats offer the ultimate views for the leaf peeper in all of us and a stop at the pumpkin patch is sure to delight those littles in tow. Here is a roundup of historic Connecticut trains and trolleys to climb aboard this fall. And, for more autumn adventures, check out our CT Halloween Guide for Kids. 

Drama and Dance at These New Haven County Camps

Do your children opt to act or dance instead of play team sports? Participating in a play or a performance of some type is a great experience and teaches kids all about teamwork and reaching personal goals. If your son or daughter loves to be on-stage or in front of the camera tap-dancing their hearts out then New Haven has a camp for them! And of course, check out our entire  CT Summer Camp Guide and our Summer Camp Directory.
