Recreation

You’ll love the four seasons of action in Southern Connecticut. At the first sign of spring, shed the winter gear and celebrate nature’s reawakening with The Audubon Shop’s annual bird walks at Hammonasset Beach State Park, the stunning Japanese cherry blossoms along Wooster Street and the breathtaking Daffodil Festival (600,001 bulbs in all of their glory) at Hubbard Park. 

Blessed with 40 miles of prime shoreline real estate, sunbathing, swimming and cruising are cherished summer pursuits in Greater New Haven. 

With the refreshing fall air more fairs beckon.  The North Haven Fair is a timeless New England agricultural events with livestock, rides and customary carnival treats.  Head to the farms to pick-your-own apples and pumpkins or challenge your sense of direction in puzzling corn mazes.  If you want to marvel at dazzling fall foliage, try Rt. 63 through Woodbridge and Bethany.

If you are a hearty soul, brave the frosty weather to track eagles and seals on their annual pilgrimages.
