Fairfield, CT —
Get Outside & Enjoy Fairfield

October 1st to March 31st, dogs and horses are allowed to roam free on Fairfield’s beaches, parks and hiking trails. Lake Mohegan is 170 acres of Fairfield-owned trails and lake access for hiking and swimming, during the summer months. I take my dog here in the fall and spring and do two quick laps around the lake to tire her out as a daily workout.

At the end of Harbor Road, a prestigious waterfront address in Southport, CT, sits the boat and kayak access for the Pequot Yacht Club. I usually park on the street and lead my dog past the club, down the street a bit, near two docks at the entrance from the Long Island Sound to Southport Harbor. There is a 10-foot beach, which is plenty big enough for her to run in and out of the water as I throw sticks. I’m always wary of passing boats though!

"For the pups who don’t have pools to leisurely cool off in during the summer, there is one secret place they can frolic in the water from April to September."

Southport Harbor is a great place to enjoy the sunset on one of those long docks or to rent a paddleboard or kayak from the Fairfield Kayak Company. (http://www.fairfieldkayakcompany.com/) You can take either through the tranquil waters of the harbor, or into slightly rougher waters of the Long Island Sound.

To further enjoy nature in breathtaking Fairfield, my husband and I stop at Fairfield Cheese Company on 2090 Post Road to stock up on nuts, crackers, fig jam and a few artisanal cheeses, before heading to Sasco Beach for a picnic. You’ll drive down about a half mile of the most stately mansions you’ve ever seen before hitting a quaint public beach.
