White Memorial Foundation – White Memorial is a non profit which owns 4000 acres of land surrounding the lake with hiking trails, museums, campgrounds and many events. Nice place to spend a couple hours hiking and checking things out.
R & B Sports World – Located in Winsted (about 20 min away) offering go carts, bumper cars & mini golf. Nice spot to bring the kids!
Action Wildlife – All types of animals including zebra, water buffalo, bison, elk, emu and more. I believe they have a petting zoo as well. Set up outside on a large piece of property to walk around.
Sportsmens – Paddle board or kayak up the Bantam River and see the Beavers and other wildlife (we can point out the river if your on the boat with us). Sportsmens offers kayak, canoe, paddleboard & snowshoe rentals as well for the winter months.
Mohawk Mountain Ski Area – Located in Cornwall (about 20 min from Litchfield), Mohawk is a great family Mountain that offers day and nighttime skiing and snowboarding. For beginners they offer private lessons and rentals which can be extremely helpful and make your experience that much better. I have also heard great things about their youth ski racing programs from many of our kids camp families although I believe it is quite competitive and I do not have first hand experience with the program.
Wood Acres Farm – Wood Acres Farm in Terryville offers horse drawn sleigh & carriage rides both with and without snow. This seems like a fun idea for couples or families looking to try something different this winter in a small group setting! These are private tours by reservation only.
