Though I've tried to compile a large variety of fun activities and events, I know there are many more out there. In addition, I've focused on free events, while I know there are many activities available that have nominal or higher costs involved. With these things in mind, here are a few places to look if you'd like something different.
- Connecticut Parent magazine Paper copies of this free publication can be found in libraries, pediatricians' offices, town buildings, and more. Or you can visit them online at ctparent.com.
- CT Kids and Family Paper copies of this free publication can also be found in libraries, pediatricians' offices, town buildings, and elsewhere. You can also visit them online at ctkidsandfamily.com.
- Visit Connecticut Website This site provides information on everything from where to stay to where to eat to what to do. It's searchable by region and type of event (there's an event category for kids and family). You can find it at ctvisit.com.
- HulaFrog This site lets you search for activities and other information for different areas in Connecticut. Get linked to your region, and you're good to go. Find it at hulafrog.com.
- Out and About Mom Similar to Hula Frog, but not as region-specific. Activities and information for excursions around Connecticut. Find it at outandaboutmom.com.
A Quick Tip
Museums, organizations, and towns all have their own websites, complete with event information. No one site will list everything, so check out as many as your time permits!
If money is really tight, and you worry about your kids not getting enough to eat when school is out, check out Free Summer Meals by End Hunger CT. No child should go hungry.
