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.

Many people are turning to the great outdoors for fresh air, exercise and the renewing power of nature during the COVID-19 pandemic. Connecticut’s parks, forests and trails are a great resource. Below is a list of a few you might consider. But please check for temporary closures before you venture out and follow the guidelines provided by state and local officials.
They include avoiding popular or crowded parks; observing the CDC's minimum recommended social distancing of six feet from other people; and, avoiding surfaces that are touched often, like playscapes, park benches and even other people's pets.
