Apple Picking in Connecticut Guide
The only consolation for summer ending (in my book) is that we are about to enter glorious Autumn here in Connecticut. Taking the kids to one of CT's beautiful orchards to pick their own apples right off the trees is a right of passage in this part of New England. Many orchards also host cool kids' attractions, like hay rides, corn mazes, petting zoos, bouncy houses, and home-baked treats such as cider-doughnuts, homemade pies and fresh-pressed cider. You'll find orchards in each region of the state here in our apple picking guide. Might be a good time to make some apple sauce with the kids?
