    I’m from the Litchfield Hills area of CT, so if you make that your destination I have some recommendations! Kent, CT along the way on Route 7 is a fantastic small town and home to Kent Falls, a very pretty spot for hiking. It also has some great little shops and boutiques.
    Further south on Rte 7 is New Milford, whose Main Street area know as The Green is one of the inspirations for Stars Hollow of Gilmore Girls fame, thanks to the Gazebo. There’s some nice shops and eateries around there and it’s worth a pit stop to walk around this quaint New England town center. If you’re look for some really good pizza, the Brickhouse on Rte. 7 acrossish from the Starbucks is really good and my fave place for Sicilian pizza in the area.

    You can also cut through the green to get onto Route 202, which is where you can take it north to Washington Depot, another Gilmore Girls inspired stop and it’s a pretty drive.
    And if you want an iconic grocery store experience, check out Stew Leonards that’s further south of New Milford on Rte 7 in Danbury. It’s an experience, though right now not sure how it’s been with COVID.

      Hi Lauren! Thank you so much for sharing – this all sounds incredible. I look forward to exploring that area in the future. 🙂

    Gorgeous photos! I miss travel so much. Hopefully, by next fall, we’ll be back to normal.
