Local Destinations Open Doors to Residents with Free/Discounted Entry and Special Activities
HARTFORD, Conn., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday, June 14, Connecticut's Office of Tourism invites residents to come out and explore the state's unique blend of destinations during the 10th annual Connecticut Open House Day. As part of the statewide event, more than 175 destinations are providing special offers for residents, from free state park admissions and boat cruises, to discounted spa services and more.
"We've found our residents don't always realize the diverse blend of experiences that Connecticut offers," said Randy Fiveash, director of the Connecticut Office of Tourism. "Open House provides a unique opportunity for people to enjoy the state's special mix of historic and the new, the relaxing and the active, the natural and the cultural – whether they visit someplace they've never been before or return to a treasured favorite."
Residents can visit destinations all across the state, including:
Open House Day continues to evolve year over year with 19 new participants including Delamar Greenwich Harbor, Soarin' Indoors and the Southington Drive-In and Avon Theaters, among others, while it continues to attract pioneering members of the Open House Day family, such as Goodspeed Opera House, Henry Whitfield State Museum, Nathan Hale Homestead, Prudence Crandall Museum and American Clock & Watch Museum and more.
