Are you looking for some fun and interesting to do this Fall here in Connecticut. While we know that Fall is the time we pick apples, drink cider, and go on long, scenic drives through the state to watch the Fall Foliage change colors, did you know that there are so many other things to do too? I bet you didn’t know about the Dark Walk Haunted Camp Tour in Andover or the Mystic Pirate Invasion coming in October did you?
