Here is an awesome Castle just down the road from us. Built by William Gillette in 1914 (famous actor who played Sherlock Holmes) There are 184 Acres of land to explore. The castle has 14,000 square feet, 24 rooms and 47 very uniquely carved wooden doors and locks. Tickets are just $6 You can easily "see" this place in an hour. Figure and extra half hour if you bring a picnic lunch for the Tables on the grounds.

Devil's Hopyard is a very nice state park. There is no charge. The Chapmin falls are lovely and there are 860 acres of land with literally miles of trails to explore. You can pick a short trail for a half hour walk or spend up to as much as a few hours on some longer trails. The water and picnic areas are great for swimming and relaxing.

Delightful town. Voted as the number one small town in all of America. You'll love this town. Plan to spend a few hours if you can. There is a beautiful park, a Main street that can be walked up and down in a half hour or so. Many shops and restaurants (Our favorites are the Black Seal and The Griswold Inn). There is a beautiful Dock at the Harbor, lots of Ducks and one angry aggressive swan (don't mess with him he bites. haha) Views are outstanding. There is the Ct River Museum which is very nice to go into, a Fine coffee shop and an Ice creme parlor in town that's worth the price.

An awesome trip with several choices. You can chose the 2.5H trip from Essex to Chester, Or the Lunch or dinner train (amazing) and one choice is also to connect with the Riverboat tour. This lasts an additional hour + Very picturesque journey/experience.
