April in New England

Saturday April 5, 2014
It sleeted and snowed here in Connecticut on March 31, and then, the next day, it was sunny and in the high 50s, and I went for a walk without a jacket on! It was almost as if Mother Nature finally remembered to flick the spring switch.

After a relentless winter, I know I'm not the only one eager to embrace April. I hope my guide to April's top events and best places to visit will inspire you to plan an April getaway. Don't worry about the weather. Mud washes off!
