February long vacation weekend fun in Fairfield, Hartford, New Haven, CT

February weather can make any outing seem like a horrible idea, but there's too much family fun happening across Nutmeg State to hang around the house this weekend. In fact, there's so much to do, we're thankful for the extra day to pack it all in!

This Presidents Day weekend has a little bit of everything. In Mystic, you can warm up at the Tropical Sensation or cool of at the first-ever Ice Festival. New Haven celebrates the Year of the Pig at Lunarfest, while it's all about chocolate and Valentines in Fairfield County. On Monday, you can learn about and honor our great presidents in Bridgeport and Bristol.
