Sunflower maze can be done in 20 minutes. $10 for adults and $5 for kids. A little overpriced, but fun. Take note that there a lot of bees on the flowers in the maze and you hear them buzzing around your head the whole time....More

Lyman's is a central Connecticut institution. The cider is classic and the cider doughnuts, well, are addictive. Anyone in the area should stop at the Apple Barrel or do some pick you own!
