While I had originally thought Clinton Beach or another shoreline area would be a good venue, the extended weather forecast made me reconsider as the temps are going to be in the 50's with windy conditions on Thursday. Best to be inland and away from the water.
Parmelee Farm in Killingworth is a lovely historic farm and park. Here's the link to the website with lots of photos.
Hope we miss the rain forecast for this week.
Directions to Parmelee Farm, 465 Connecticut 81, Killingworth, CT.
From points west, the easiest direction is to take I-95 east to exit 63, take a left off the exit and then another immediate left onto route 81 north. Continue on Route 81 to the traffic circle 5.3 miles and take the 2nd exit of the circle to continue north on route 81. Destination will be on the right in 2.1 miles.
From points east along the shoreline, take I-95 to exit 63 and take a left off the exit also to head north on route 81. Continue on Route 81 to the traffic circle 5.2 miles and take the 2nd exit of the circle to continue north on route 81. Destination will be on the right in 2.1 miles.
There are shorter routes, depending on exactly where you live. For example if you live across the CT River, you would take route 9 north to exit 6 for Chester, take a left off the exit and continue on 148 till you come to route 81. Take a left onto route 81, heading south. Parmelee Farm will be a short ways on your left.
Please park in the front large parking lot as no visitor's vehicles are allowed onto the farm property.
