Kent CT

During our stay at the 200 year old Mill, we headed up to Kent CT.  We originally planned to go to Quassy Amusement Park because I assumed there would be a hike to see Kent Falls, and worried my 3 year old daughter would not been able to make it.  But after speaking to a local, who assured me that you can just walk right up to the fall and that the hike to the top was easy enough for even a 3 year old to do, we then changed our minds and decided on Kent CT.

We were too hungry to wait until Kent for Kingsley Tavern - which looked really good when we walked by later in the afternoon.  So we stopped by the Cookhouse (which we also believe was converted from a Mill) for some finger licking ribs!!!
Kent CT is a small town with its main street area consisting of just few blocks.  But those few blocks are filled with wonderful stores, art galleries, outdoor art displays, antiques, and good eats!!  We were so glad we decided on Kent Falls!
There was also a museum with old trains and antique machinery few blocks up on the way to Kent Falls, we drove in and took few pictures.
Kent Falls was exactly as described, you just walk right up to it after you park the car.  We hiked to the top, and found a spot at the stream where the kids played for about an hour pretending to fishing and throwing rocks.
We ended the night at a funky toy store and watched How to Train a Dragon 2 in New Milford, CT.

Here is another Kent CT day trip guide from Mommy Poppins.
