  • Wanted to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks and decided to go to Connecticut's National Historic Site. Great tour and wonderful hiking. 
  • This park was a wonderful place to wander, relax and enjoy. I only wish I had more time so that I could have taken advantage of the water colors they offer on premises. A hope to get back there soon.
  • Nice historic site sitting in the middle of Wilton! Great history - take a docent tour with the well trained rangers!
  • Cute farm, with well maintained grounds and a short trail to the Weir pond. Good for a casual stroll.
  • Absolutely delightful guides
  • This is one of my favorite places to go and relax. If you like painting you can get free paints and access to drawing supplies. It really is a great experience for kids, especially the "scavenger hunt" and being able to use high quality paints and drawing supplies. Every time I have been there (3 times) the Park Rangers are super helpful and thoroughly knowledgeable. I have been to a few national parks, but this is one of my favorites. It's great all year, but I have been there twice in the fall and I think it's beautiful. If you like history, and know or want to learn about American impressionist painting, this is a great place. There are tours and workshops galore! That being said, this is also a great place to sit back relax and do nothing and just enjoy the land, the surroundings, and the experience.
