Current Issue


Welcome to winter in northeastern Connecticut!

Although it seems like a good time of year to hibernate, taking in your favorite books and movies, is it also a good time to venture out and try something new. This is a great time of year to search for treasures and update your home. Antique shops, boutiques, and small pop-up shops are fun to explore with unique items that can’t be found anywhere else.

Consider volunteering, this is a great way to spend time and give back to your community.

The Quiet Corner offers several fun ways to gather your friends and family, while taking art, cooking or floral arrangement classes.

Get reaquainted with your faith by attending services offered throughout the region. And of course we havea variety of dining to satisfy any taste. Please enjoy this issue of the Putnam Traveler!
