On the way back from Essex, Connecticut, we decided to stop by Weir Farm - part of our thinking, "Oh, they have a stamp, let's see what they're all about." Even if you have little interest in art, and can't tell an impressionist from Dali,...More

A relaxing place to walk around, better than the gym! Ample land and parking. This is the only national park in Connecticut.

The Weir Farm National Historic Site is a great place to take one's family. Not only would people learn about a great artist, but there is an opportunity to hike and enjoy the environment.

I don't know that this site is particularly enchanting. It is located out in the country. The workshop building is next to the woods. The garden is okay. The outside of the house is photogenic. The colors of the leaves are not particularly happening.

Watch short movie at visitor center before going on free tour of house. Nice little trails. Wonderful landscapes.

Beautiful vistas in the fall and lots of choices for walking paths. Nice because dogs are allowed on leash.

Tucked out of the way, this place is a little treasure. For anyone with artistic interests and seeking creative inspiration it's worth a visit. We called in the Visitor Centre and wandered in the gardens on a hot morning - which was very peaceful.

Our grandchildren loved working on their Jr. Ranger books here. They had to search for small boxes containing clues to find their next "letter" box. They also liked searching for the painted bison statues which blended in with their surroundings. The adults liked the beautiful...More

Most of the trails are very easy walking, though not paved. Mostly level and there are several walking "hikes" from which to choose.
