September: Second Summer Last Updated: July 2021
As we all know, summer doesn’t officially end until September 22, 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.
Splash in Salt Water
The sand is still sandy and the water’s still warm all along Connecticut’s shoreline. Some town beaches open up to the public at large after Labor Day and, of course, the big state beaches at ready for you.
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?
Lobster Roll With a View
The hot lobster roll is a Connecticut invention, so you should make sure to have at least one every summer. Haven’t had yours yet? Head for the water and order one before it’s too late!
