The CT Wine Trail: Passport to the Litchfield Vineyards

One of the things I love about New England travel, from where I live, is that I can get anywhere around the six New England states with only a few hours of travel required.  It makes traveling a breeze!  My latest trip brought me and my mother and sister-in-law to Goshen, CT, which is located…

An Update from a New Englander

My journey with Enchanting New England all began on Instagram.  Being a photographer, I LOVE Instagram, and I wanted to remind you all to follow me there!  I might not have as much time as I’d like to update my blog, but I make sure to post a photo of my travels (almost) daily on…

Ben & Jerry’s Factory Tour | Waterbury, VT

It was a cold, dreary, snowy day in Waterbury, VT when my husband, our two friends, and I visited Ben & Jerry’s, but I was ready to visit the colorful factory and get my Ben & Jerry’s ice cream fix!     I have to say, the tour guide was great, very chipper, and really…

Chester, CT | Chester Bowles Highway Tour

Chester, CT is a unique, artsy part of Connecticut nestled off of Route 9. What makes it so unique? The architecture. I couldn’t tell if I was in a time warp, England, or the US!  I felt more like I was in England though from Annie Glover’s English Goods,  the Pattaconk 1850 Bar & Grille,…

Essex, CT | A New England Halloween Town

Growing up in Connecticut, I didn’t know about Route 9 until my late 20’s.  Crazy, right?  I passed by it all the time, but I never took the time to venture off of I-95 to go see where it went.  The Chester Bowles Highway is the section of Route 9 that stretches from Old Saybrook…

Alpacas & Llamas in New England
