Monday is the first official day of summer, but why wait till next weekend when you can enjoy summer this weekend. Hit the beach or cool off in at a good movie in the theater (but pass on the candy and popcorn). Or consider the best of both worlds at Mansfield’s Drive-In theater.

Summer Getaway

Maybe take a leisurely raft ride down the Farmington River.

Hiking is always a favorite activity of mine. And Connecticut has lots of places to hike. I like Devil’s Hopyard and the Heublein Tower.

Have a picnic with friends or just you and your favorite book.
