Moving with Children Part 2

Moving with Children Part 2things to do in CT

One of the best things to do when moving to a new location is find exciting places for the kids to go to when they get there.   When we moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, my wife purchased annual passes to the Indianapolis Zoo and the Indianapolis Children’s Museum.  My wife and kids practically lived there, and the kids learned so much!

Here in Cheshire, we have a fantastic toy museum, Barker Character, Comic and Cartoon Museum (associated with the Barker Animation Art Gallery on Route 10).  This is a great spot for youngsters, teens, parents, and grandparents to share as they have toys things to do in CTand memorabilia that all will remember and get excited about.  We also have nearby amusement parks, really cool places for the dinosaur lovers (Peabody Museum and the Rocky Hill Dinosaur Park), and Art and History Museums. 

So find out what your new area has to offer, and make a point of checking some out during a house hunting trip if that is at all possible.  Here are more Connecticut Attractions ideas.
