  • This is a great place to take kids. They have several aquariums and a touch tank for kids of all ages and a gentle, caring staff. They also have a multi-purpose learning center. Go see it and take you...  more »
  • A free nature center that has a lot of interesting exhibits that focus on local wilderness. Explore Indoors and out in this fun and interesting area. It's the prefect way to break up the beach for 30-60 minutes as you and your family learn more about the world around you.
  • This is a gem in the sand.. Russ gave me an extensive presentation.. I had no idea this facility had so much to offer.. This is a must see and it is free. I was totally impressed.. So kick the rugrat off the couch and experience the real Connecticut.. This is a must see. I'm sure they except donations.. Sooo If you have a few extra bucks to chip in...... EnjoyπŸ”€πŸ˜€πŸŸπŸ‘
