Things to Do in June Around Connecticut

I have family coming out to visit me in June.  They have been out here several times before so we always try to find something a little different to do each time.  I put together a  list of things we may do in the CT/RI area this June.  I'll be sure to report back after the visit.

Coventry, CT
They've been cited as New England’s BEST farmers’ market by YankeeMagazine AND selected as one of USA Today’s “Top 10 great places to shop at a farmers market!”

Niantic, CT
This store is actually a barn with meandering paths to themed sheds full of books.  I especially love all the friendly cats, goats and beautiful gardens you can sit in and read.  It's no ordinary book shop!

Stony Creek, CT
Take a narrated boat tour of all the rocky islands and their history in the Long Island Sound.

Westerly, RI (just over the CT border)
One of my favorite coastal towns with shops, restaurants and beaches.
I've posted some on my favorite beach here and here.

Point Judith, RI
A small cape with a working lighthouse, fisherman's beach and where you can buy lobsters right off the boats as they come in!

Mystic, CT
A museum including a 19th century village and many old ships in seaport you can explore.
Mystic, CT is also a must see town with some great restaurants!  This one is my favorite because it is
 allergy-free!

Pick-Your-Own Strawberries
Middlefield, CT
or
Old Lyme, CT
June is pick-your-own strawberries season!

I can't wait for summer!
