September: Second Summer Last Updated: August 2023

As we all know, summer doesn’t officially end until September 23, which means there’s still time to do some of the things you never got around to before Labor Day. And what’s not to love about the September version of summer in Connecticut? The crowds are down, the weather and water are both still warm, prices are sometimes reduced . . . heck, it might be the nicest summer month of all.

Go Out for Ice Cream

Some of Connecticut’s best ice cream spots are seasonal, some stay open all year ‘round, but going out for this cold treat does seem like a summery thing to do. Do you like to be able to see the cows that provided the cream for what you’re enjoying? Find more ice cream here.
