For a trip to Western Connecticut, you should definitely pack a pair of comfortable shoes and sturdy hiking boots, as you’ll want to take advantage of the numerous trails and other natural delights of the surrounding areas, including Lake Waramaug - where you can also go biking, so don’t forget to bring your trusty ten-speed and safety gear; you can also cycle to your heart’s content at White Memorial Conservation Center in Litchfield. Be sure to pack a jacket and other outerwear to protect you during inclement weather and for those cool New England nights - you don’t want to spend your vacation all soggy, or even worse, just plain freezing.
Since golf is a popular pastime in the area, we recommend bringing your clubs along for the ride, which you can use at public courses such as Stonybrook, a nine-hole course, and Candlewood Country Club, an eighteen-hole course in New Milford. We also recommend packing your digital camera - and some extra memory cards - to fully capture the beauty of this section area of New England. Those snapshots will make some mighty fine desktop backgrounds and facebook photo uploads - and will surely make all your friends envious.
