I wish I had a photo of how beautiful Kent is in the Fall, but unfortunately, it is on my other computer. Kent is a lovely small town in the Western part of Connecticut and is a great place for a weekend New England trip. I highly recommend visiting in the fall, as the foliage is amazing and Kent has been voted as one of the top 15 places to see fall foliage. For a sample day in Kent here’s what I would do:
- Have an early morning breakfast or lunch
(depending on your arrival time) at The Villager as their chocolate chip pancakes are delicious. For lunch, I recommend the quesadillas or the chicken caesar wrap. The milkshakes are very good as well.
- Walk around the town and visit the different stores. On the weekends, the town is bustling with out of town visitors. I would definitely visit the old bookstore which is tucked back among the other stores and is worth a look.
- Visit the Art Galleries.
- See Kent Falls which is a short drive away from the main town center.
- Have a meal at JP Gifford’s Marketplace or Gifford’s Restaurant. My personal recommendation would be to have the Pad Thai as it is my absolute favorite.
