Alfresco Thursdays in Essex (July & August) are just the thing to take a break from it all! Getaway for a magical evening of strolling, shopping, dining, toe-tapping, and having a Covidly responsible good time!
Quarantine took its toll on our skin, that’s for sure. So you can understand why we were knocking on the doors of Revitalize MedSpa the moment they were open and back to business! Lauren Cardone, APRN, give us a full COVID-over, please!
Saybrook Home is a little less country these days (formerly known as Saybrook Country Barn) and a little more…OMG, every home décor-Pinterest-dream-come-true! Almost every furnishing taste and style can be satisfied here, and at 42,000 square feet of retail shopping, this isn’t just a shopping destination, it’s a shopping day trip. Prepare to be inspired to decorate!
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!
