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!

The Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, CT is an annual event for me (Lora here). I totally love the one day you can bring a camera (no surprise there), which is the Celebrity Pro-Am (June 20th). There’s nothing like a sunny day, gorgeous grounds, getting lots of steps in, and watching the best golfers having fun with celebs. The interaction is great – the players are much more relaxed and stop to chat, take pics and sign autographs. So fun to see packs of little kids running around with their swag, trying to get all the players to sign!

Check out some of my shots from the day…
