Kent CT wins Yankee Magazine Best Place for Leaf Peeping! Kent beat out Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts for the best place for leaf peeping in New England. No surprise to me or to many who live in the area. Lower Litchfield County is full of eye candy, and the small town of Kent, CT is no exception!
According to Yankee Magazine, it is not just about the trees, it is an overall viewpoint. I already knew there was much to see and do in Kent, the center of Kent is full of wonderful little stores, antique shops, great restaurants. The Appalachian Trail runs through Kent, making it a great place to hike. The Housatonic River cuts through Kent, CT, perfect for fishing, kayaking, canoeing. Route 7 wanders through Kent, CT providing some of the best eye candy going.
