Bio: I started the Connecticut Weekender in 2008 as a way to spotlight all of the great things that Connecticut has to offer, and to inspire people to go out and explore.  We’re so used to seeing the dreary sights of the daily commute like I-95 or Metro North, that we forget Connecticut can be quite scenic, rural, and interesting once you step off the beaten path.  By sharing my experiences I hope you’ll feel inspired to go check them out for yourself, or find new things on your own.
