When you come to Connecticut in wintertime, there’s nothing like a nice, hot bowl of chowder to warm you up. Whether you’ve been hiking through the snowy woods or skiing down a powdery slope, strolling along the shore or shopping up a storm, the chowder will quickly remind you that it’s one of the great comfort foods – savory, substantial, steamy and altogether delicious.

One of the things we love most about summertime in Connecticut is that long, purple, very pleasant period at the end of the day. The busy affairs of the daytime have come to an end, the midday heat is easing at last and it’s time for refreshment, maybe even a picnic, and a relaxing couple of hours as night so very gradually descends. Here are some good ways to spend your summer evening hours in Connecticut.
