No one dresses up for the holiday season quite like Connecticut. To find a few of the towns that show particularly scenic levels of festive spirit, we consulted the photo book, A Connecticut Christmas by Caryn B. Davis. We’re sharing some of her photographs that we think perfectly capture the charm of Connecticut and the warmth of the holiday season!

One of Connecticut’s great autumn pleasures is cozying up to a fire while enjoying cocktails or a meal, or both. Luckily, there are dozens and dozens of fireside dining options in the state. Some of the hearths are located in country pubs, some in shoreline inns, and many can be found in fine-dining establishments – so make your choice and toast the cold days and nights from your comfortable perch.

Who doesn’t love a long weekend? It gives us an extra day to rest, play or get away – and in 2020, it seems we have Leap Day to thank for more time to celebrate. This extra day in the year has rearranged our calendar to create three more long weekends and puts holidays like Valentine’s Day and Halloween on Fridays or Saturdays. Cinco de Mayo even falls perfectly on a (taco) Tuesday! For maximum celebration, we’ve put together a list of exciting ways to enjoy your extra holiday weekends in 2020.
