The Escapes

Bristol, ME – Pemaquid Point

Maine has seven fingers across its MidCoast, each having characteristics that make them staples in the region for tourists and locals alike.

Niantic, CT —
A quiant seaside village of east lyme

Niantic, a quaint seaside village of East Lyme, has become a tourist destination in its own right, with Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound to the south, and the Niantic River to the east. Niantic is the only community on the Connecticut coast where the “Main Street” runs parallel to beautiful Long Island Sound. It’s the home of a mile-long waterfront boardwalk overlooking Long Island Sound offering inspiring views of Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound.

Eastham, MA —
Eastham is the Gateway to the Park

When is the last time you can remember laughing and being in a place that makes you feel like a kid again? Come to Eastham, a small town with less than 5,000 residents that stands out when it comes to beauty, friendliness and recreation. My family and I love living here and wake up each day to a list of places to explore and learn about.

The beaches are untouched, pristine and available to all, some of Eastham’s special places are:

Trumbull, CT —
Best of Trumbull

If you’re looking for a new home, look no further than the town of Trumbull, CT. There are so many outstanding things about my town, but here are just a few that make it one of Connecticut's best towns for families.

Hingham, MA —
The Festival of Americana

Hingham's 4th of July celebration is one of the town's most cherished traditions in this quintessential New England small town. It is a festival of Americana where friends and family gather to celebrate our country. It is also the patriotic introduction to the summer.

Glastonbury, CT —
The perfect blend of both historic beauty and modern convenience

Glastonbury, Connecticut is a town with the perfect blend of both historic beauty and modern convenience. We are fortunate to have The Historical Society of Glastonbury which informs residents and visitors alike about our rich history at the Museum on the Green, as well as through educational and promotional events such as the Bread and Beer Demonstration and the Walking Tours. Did you know Glastonbury is the Connecticut town with the largest inventory of Colonial homes? We also are proud to have the oldest continuous operating ferry in the country, dating back to 1655. The Ferry Landing is my favorite place to park the car, and take a walk past sunflowers, tobacco barns, and working farms.

Shelton, CT —
Country Living

When I first moved to Shelton in 1980 it was a totally different city than you will see today. To me, it was “country living.” There was farmland everywhere and just down the street from us was a milk machine. Yes, you stopped at the milk machine on Walnut Tree Hill Road, put your money in (cash) and when you were short on milk at 10:00 pm, you were always in luck. This was surely a primitive version of our now 24/7 convenience stores.

Kent, CT —
Welcome to Kent, CT, the home for everyone!

As a visitor to this quintessential New England town, you will be greeted by warm smiles and enlightening conversations with the locals. You can stay at the one of the six B and B’s and Inns where you will be spoiled by your innkeepers. Or, if you are smitten by Kent (and who isn’t), you can choose a tour of your future home with one of the real estate agents in town or nearby New Milford, CT.

Darien, CT —
A Perfect Summer or Early Fall Weekend in Darien

Get up early Saturday morning and take a walk through Woodland Park with it’s many trails. You will feel like you are miles away from civilization. Alternatively, try the loop around Long Neck Point with beautiful vistas of Darien Harbor and Long Island Sound. On a clear day, you will be able to see New York City. You will likely see many other people out on this route jogging, pushing strollers or walking dogs. Then go out for breakfast at one of the many local spots for the perfect bacon, egg and cheese or a fresh bagel. Some favorite spots are Jake’s Place, Uncle’s Deli or UCBC for great bagels.

New Fairfield, CT —
New York’s Best Kept Secret

New Fairfield, Connecticut is a fabulous suburban community located about one hour from Manhattan, just over the line from Brewster, New York. It’s a great location for commuting into Westchester County & NYC, as it is minutes from Metro North train line and holds itself as a true ‘vacation lifestyle’ town as one of five towns that surround beautiful Candlewood Lake.

Middlefield, CT —
“Fielders” Have More Fun

Growing up, my Dad used to tell me that Middlefield was once a part of the city of nearby Middletown but a tax difference between the urban “Towners” and the rural “Fielders” caused tensions and so, the towns split apart. Although I haven’t found anything to back up his claim, Middlefield remains a sacred place to me and now, to my own family.

Darien, CT —
Summer Nights in Darien

The Darien Nights Concert Series was launched by Darien residents David Genovese and Penny Glassmeyer, who head up Baywater Properties and Grove Street Plaza, respectively. During the Winter of 2008-2009, the two decided it was time to do something positive for residents who would be staying around town because of the unsettled economic climate and to encourage them to shop locally and support Darien’s merchants. The first series was such a great success this yearly tradition has continued ever since and every year attendance grows.
