Kent, Connecticut, living and playing in beautiful Kent, CT.
I love to go to Kent, CT. Take a drive up Route 7 North from New Milford, it will take you right into the heart of Kent, CT. Nestled in the scenic foothills of the Berkshires, Kent, CT is a place you shouldn't miss! But first, don't forget to stop and check out the covered bridge over the Housatonic River at Bulls Bridge. Stop and take a bit of a stroll through the paths above the Housatonic River or just sit and enjoy the view! And if you are hungry, try one of my favorite restaurants in the area, Bulls Bridge Inn. (My favorite meal is to ask for their crab cake appetizers as an entree, and hit their salad bar, the best I have ever had!)
Downtown Kent, CT is wonderful. Filled with boutique shops, you will find that special one-of-a-kind gift, or something special for yourself to remember your trip by.

There are many more shops in Kent, this is just my favorite. If you go there, I am sure you will have a hard time choosing your favorite place!
