Litchfield Hills Connecticut Art Trail Getaway:

Just a one and one-half hour drive from New York City, Litchfield Hills beckons with village greens, country inns, white-steepled churches and winding back roads. But it is more than countryside, the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield are two cultural treasures. Start your getaway by checking in to the Courtyard by Marriot, not to far away from the Mattatuck Museum. Walk to the Mattatuck Museum to view collections that focus on the region’s heritage and America’s master artists. Then take a five minute drive to the Timexpo Museum to learn the story of Timex since it began in the 1850s. End the day with award-winning steak or lobster at Carmen Anthony’s Steakhouse.

On the second day after enjoying breakfast at the inn, drive 15 miles to Woodbury for some of the best antiquing and dining in New England. Woodbury is known as the Antiques Capitol of Connecticut, with more than 45 antiques and arts dealers. Lunch at the award-winning Good News Cafe in Woodbury, named one of the nation’s best restaurants by Zagat’s in 2007. On the way back to the inn, stop at Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust for a nature walk. That evening, enjoy a pre-theater dinner at San Marino Ristorante, before a live performance at the Palace Theater or the Seven Angels Theatre. On day three, head back to New York with a stoop a the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield. If time permits, spend the night at the historic Stonehenge Inn & Restaurant and dine at their AAA Four-Diamond restaurant.
