Celebrate May Day At the Capital Campaign
Tolland is a lovely town in Tolland County, Connecticut. It is located about six miles north of New Haven, and about ten miles from Connecticut City. The population in 2010 was fifteen,052. That sounds like a pretty good number, but that doesn’t tell you much about the place.
This town is part of the historical district of Tolland. The history of Tolland includes much more than just a historical society. There are beautiful country homes to buy and rent, and plenty of places for vacationing. During the summer, the county courthouse is open to the public for free, as well as many community events. There are also state parks located here.
In terms of where to eat, the most popular restaurants in Tolland include the Willoughby diner, the Courthouse Bistro, the Trestle Inn, and the L’Orient. The restaurant that provides the best view of the historic district is the Courthouse Bistro. This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Some of the other usual dining areas are the L’Orient, the Trestle Inn, and the Willoughby Diner.
A few of the places that you might want to see while in Tolland are the Maine Avenue lighthouse and the Maine Avenue State House Museum. The Maine Avenue lighthouse has a train station that takes visitors back to the 1800s. In addition to the train station, the museum has a classroom where you can learn about the history of the American West. For some reason, people always seem to think that the connection between the two is that the train station happened on the same street as the court house museum.
Another reason that the connection isn’t so obvious is because that the train station is in New London, Connecticut while the museum is in Tolland. However, when you get closer to the actual location of the two, you find that they were actually built so close to one another that it would have been difficult for them to connect if it weren’t for the connection between the two. If you are interested in the connection, the two locations are actually very close. In fact, it is easy to reach the end of the tunnel by taking a train from NYC to Boston.
June is also known as the International Blueberry month. Because the state of Connecticut is home to some of the nation’s most outstanding blueberries, it is fitting that this month is named after the sweet, delicate berry. One of the highlights of the International Blueberry Month is the annual strawberry picking fair held during the end of June. At this fair, visitors can go to the juniper berry picking farm and purchase their own small, hand-picked berries. Some of the top picks are the sweetest, tartest tasting strawberries, known as cobbler strawberries.
Tolland also hosted its own version of the Taste of Tolland summer event. The “Tolland Summerfest” is celebrating its 20th anniversary of selling and displaying delicious fare from across the United States, as well as Canada, on a special day each year. On this day, visitors are invited to sample food from various regions of the country. For the last several years, the festival has featured the very popular homemade doughnut from the heart of Tolland, Vermont. This year, that same doughnut shop will be expanding to Kittery, Maine and it is offering a free secret recipe doughnut recipe cookbook with ordering.
