For dads who like sports, the outdoors, animals and history, Connecticut offers a lot of choices to make Father’s Day a day to remember.
A day out with the kids need not cost much – or anything for that matter. There are a lot of places to go in Connecticut that are free or require a small or comparatively small admission fee.
Here are just five places kids can go to have fun on this Valentine’s Day in Connecticut.
Beardsley Zoo says it’s receiving a $78,000 grant to help it train youths in wildlife conservation.
Pack a lunch and enjoy a day at the Zoo. Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is Connecticut’s only zoo. The zoo has new animals and a new play ground this year. Check out the museum pass from your local library to enjoy free zoo admission for up to two adults and four children.
The zoo is the perfect size to enjoy on a nice day. The exhibits concentrate on animals in both North and South America. The free-roaming peacocks and guinea hens may lead to an animal encounter anywhere on the zoo grounds. Animal tracks painted on the zoo paths help little ones find the next display.
Whether it’s sports, museums, zoos or just a day on the farm, there’s something for your family to do and enjoy.
