Central Connecticut’s late summer and autumn months are prime times to enjoy its picturesque beauty and numerous outdoor events. A new brochure from the Central Regional Tourism District (CenterofCT.com) features many of the area’s popular public gardens and local farmers’ markets. The free “pocket-guide” is available in print and on line at www.CenterofCT.com and is a handy resource for visiting tourists and local residents alike.
“Our region offers many ways to get back to nature, but none are as colorful as our gardens that also bloom with history, entertainment, and activities,” explains Anne Lee, executive director of the Central Regional Tourism District.
Lee’s office covers 65 Connecticut towns and cities including the Greater Hartford, Greater New Haven, and Connecticut River Valley regions.
“In addition, our new guide lists the locations and schedules of many farmers' markets that feature locally grown and produced fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, cheeses and more," she said.
The Central Regional Tourism District (CenterofCT.com) covers 65 towns, including Cheshire, and cities located along the Connecticut River, which winds its way from Greater New Haven and the Long Island Sound over hills and rolling valleys, through the capital city of Hartford, and up to the Massachusetts border.
