And just like that, the last weekend of summer vacation has arrived. With only a couple of days left before the onset of early bedtimes and hectic morning routines, it's important to make the most of the last days of August. Maybe you're heading to the beach one more time, or looking to explore an outdoor museum. If you're seeking a sweet experience, consider touring Fascia's Chocolates or scouring the menu at an old-fashioned ice cream parlor.
If you only have a few hours to spare, get lost in the Lyman Orchards Sunflower Maze, unwind at Gillette Castle, or check out Farmers Markets brimming with fresh produce around the state. The weekend features exciting events, including the Plainville Hot Air Balloon Festival and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation's annual Schemitzun Powwow.
