We are always looking for fun things to do as day trips in Connecticut. This past weekend we visited The Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk in South Windsor for a day of shopping and food. We were invited on a media tour to check out some of the shops and also NIXS Restaurant & Bar.
The Promenade Shops are located at 501 Evergreen Way, South Windsor, Connecticut. Shops are open from 10 am to 9 pm Monday – Friday and also on Saturday. They are open from 11 am to 6 pm on Sundays.
During our time at The Promenade Shops we visited Stonewall Kitchen, Sephora, Francesca’s, J. Crew, Taste by Spellbound and then circled back to Soft Surroundings, Clarks Shoes, and EverEve. Check out the full store directory to see what shops are open now.
Even on the cloudiest of days, a day trip to The Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk is a treat. The Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk is also a dog-friendly Shopping Center. The Center features unique amenities such as a cascading fountain and fire pit with seating in a park-like setting near L.L.Bean as well as a common gathering place in the Village Green with a fire pit and plenty of seating to relax in while enjoying the experience.
NIXS Restaurant and Bar has a new Sunday “Acoustic” Brunch. We had the chance to taste test some of the menu offerings. Our favorite was the Chicken and Waffles that had a hint of spiciness. They also offer Eggs Benedict with Spinach and bacon, Huevos Rancheros Stuffed Corn Tortillas, Nutella French Toast, Candied Bacon, Naked Spicy Tuna, Roasted Potatoes and $6 Mimosas and Sangria.
The visit to Stonewall Kitchen was great. We sampled their Spicy Corn Relish. There are always so many things to see and foods items to sample at Stonewall Kitchen. Check out the calendar for upcoming food demos and cooking classes.
If you are interested in shopping for some new clothes or shoes, check out some of our favorite stores. We hit up Francesca’s which offers modern fashion and jewelry as super affordable prices. If you are into the classic look, try J. Crew. For unique boutique-style fashion, EverEve is the store to visit. For the sophisticated woman, Soft Surroundings has amazing fashion that will make you look beautiful. They also carry furniture and home decor. There are always the staple stores such as L.L. Bean at one end and Old Navy at the other end too.
At the end of your shopping “day trip” make sure to stop by Taste of Spellbound for something sweet to eat and a cup of iced coffee. This is their second location. They are also located in Avon, Connecticut. Taste of Spellbound sells Truffles, Cookies, cupcakes, cakes, caramel and peanut butter bars and so much more.
