Family Adventure Trips

The great outdoors beckons. And with school out, you’re ready to reintroduce yourself to your family. But over the years, you’ve already done the usual rites of the balmy season: historical and cultural attractions, even tracking down the best ice cream. You’re ready for a new, bold agenda.

Promoting that daring spirit, we’re giving you 75 editor-tested adventures that don’t require plane tickets, luggage or even a full tank of gas. All you need is a little fitness — for climbing, hiking, biking, paddling, sailing — and, in some cases, more than a little nerve. Connecticut and its immediate environs offer numerous activities, diverse enough to appeal to everybody. Coastline to the woodlands, our state looks every inch a playground.

Adventures are also a sure way to connect with your children, encouraging their confidence as they try new things or simply sharing a laugh over what will become treasured stories to cherish over the years. It’s time to get moving and reconnected.
