Beyond November

Billions in debt, a high unemployment rate, businesses threatening to leave the state, gridlock on the highways—Connecticut will present its next governor with a most unappetizing buffet come next January. In anticipation of that day, we’ve asked a quartet of astute political observers to offer their advice on who to vote for (if they wished to suggest a specific candidate) and in what direction the winner ought to head once he’s in office. You can read their thoughts here and then, if you like what you see, visit their blogs and websites for more.

Fall Getaways

Fall Getaways

October is one of our favorite months here in Connecticut, and it’s not hard to figure out why. The hills and valleys—and even the town greens and front yards—come alive with color. The air is crisp and sometimes frosty in the morning yet often pleasantly mild at midday—and fragrant with the aroma of fallen leaves. There is a renewed energy in fall after the languors of summer, and a desire to get out and explore. And guess what? On the pages that follow, we’ve got some great places in Connecticut for you to go spend a happy day and night or two.

My, how things have changed.
