A Weekend with my Sister!

Hi there,

My sister and I will be heading up to CT this coming weekend for a Girls' Weekend of sorts (as part of attending a festival). The festival itself is in Washington Depot, but we are staying in Southbury. I'm wondering what towns we may hit driving from our hotel in Southbury to the festival in Washington Depot that might be worth stopping at - we're both fans of small town charm, little trinket shops, antiques, bookstores and eating...any recommendations of restaurants or places to check out would be most appreciated!

Thanks so much!

Woodbury, which is next to Southbury, has tons of antique shops. Also, check out Woodbury pewter for made in CT items, enjoy famous donuts at Dottie's diner or more upscale eating at Good News Cafe, which has been featured on the Today show. Stop at the Mayflower Grace in Washington for a drink at their very elegant and exclusive lounge. Nearby Bethlehem has a tiny, tiny winery that is open on rare occasions. In Southbury we like Julio's for pizza. Litchfield isn't too far away either.
