You can take in great art, fantastic music, the deep, rich history of the area in New London.  You can find yourself exploring anywhere from the waterfront restaurants to Connecticut College’s arboretum all the way to Ocean Beach Park there is something to do for everyone in New London.

For Kids and Families this weekend Saturday at NOON at the Hempsted House 11 Hempsted St New London there will be a hands on free workshop to celebrate the renovation of the Amos Bull house (in Hartford- a sister property).  This Saturday’s event will include learning to do things in 1700’s fashion: from writing with a quill pen to trying your hand at arts and crafts and exploring the garden.  Learning & Fun- what could be better!!!

And if history is your thing there is more- on Sunday June 8 from 1p-3p you can stop into the Old Town Mill, located at 8 Mill st in New London, for a chance to see the water wheel turn, check out a video on the history of the site and see what the restoration over the last few years has brought out in this local treasure.

For a different type of experience there is also the FREE Recital, for cello & piano, taking place on Saturday June 7 at All Souls UU Congregation located at 19 Jay St New London.  This is a performance by students from the MetzMusic LLC in Waterford.  These talented young people have already won prestigious awards and recognition and would love to showcase their talents for you this weekend- Come on out and see the amazing things our young people are doing in this city!

After a day of fun and family relaxing why not check out any of the waterfront or downtown restaurants that surround the city- you are sure to find something that will please everyone!
