Great litte drive with an easy walk to the castle. Young and old can visit this central Connecticut landmark. Pick a clear day in the fall and enjoy the colors.

You can hike up to it if you want, or drive up and park if that's more your speed - there is a parking lot. There's rocks to sit on around the castle, and a wall (don't try and climb it, it has stones in...More
