Here’s Unlocking The Shoreline, a mashup of some of our favorites spots.

Our “Day Tripping” posts happen to be one of our most popular features. Making itineraries for a perfect day out with your besties is definitely our thing! There’s always eating and some kind of cocktail involved…a bit of culture, a spot of shopping, new experiences, and most of all a ton of fun!

Heya, day trippers! Today we’re in Mansfield, the “Quiet Corner” of CT. We don’t get up there much which is a shame because it’s beautiful! Mansfield is home to UCONN (Storrs is a village in Mansfield – we never knew!), great ice cream, beautiful pastoral scenery, and all you could need for a well-rounded day trip (or longer!). A cultural and recreational destination!

As you may have gathered, regular readers, our Day Tripping posts are quickly becoming our favorite thing to do! We’re now getting requests to visit towns and we’re loving it! How better to discover and “unlock” everything CT has to offer (beyond our own backyards)? To spend a day exploring, eating, shopping, and planning a day trip to share with you is our buzz!

Save this post, pick a date, and go do some day tripping in coastal Madison!

You’ve been requesting more Day Tripping posts and we’re more than happy to oblige! We love randomly picking a town in CT we want to discover, research, and plan a fun itinerary for the day. It almost always involves baked goods and coffee, some culture, some shopping, scenery, and of course lunch and a cocktail. Essex is our pick today, and what a picturesque town it is located in the Connecticut River Valley. Here are 5 stops you should make when you’re next Day Tripping in Essex!
