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!
To please our eyes and fill our soul, we recently visited Kent Barns’ art district. We perused 6 uniquely diverse art galleries covering everything from the avant-garde to classic and showing artists who are household names to the up-and-coming. All of it can be found within one beautiful block. Forget Chelsea, a world of friendly fine art is right here at Kent Barns!
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!
Day tripping fans, we have another marvelous itinerary for you! Grab your friends, download our Gmap, and go spend a delightful day in and around Stonington, Connecticut. With its coastal charm and rich history, it’s a gem!
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!

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.

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!
