Don't go expecting major sites to see, just go to take a winding river cruise, bring your own picnic lunch and enjoy the sites from the river.

We always enjoy trips on this intimate boat travelling the Connecticut River. The owners of the boat are warm, knowledgeable about the River and very helpful. Make at least a once a year trip to see different aspects of the River.

I went in Fall and did not have any young kids along, however, I think young kids would enjoy it! I would definately bring fun snacks for all.
