Why Summer Is The Best Time To Visit Guilford Green Restaurants

Summer is here! The downpour of rain is at its lowest for the year, and we’re still a month or two away from seeing the sweltering heat. Now is the time to take advantage of Guilford Green restaurants and attractions!

You always hear about New England’s fall colors and how breathtaking and majestic they are. Of course, this is true! Unfortunately, what they don’t tell you is the frequent rain is often the ruin of many fall outings. Midsummer in Guilford Green is the best time to tour and enjoy our little piece of heaven.

Guilford Green Is At Its Finest In The Midsummer Season

Guilford Green is 47 square miles of history, charm, and beautiful ocean shoreline. Established in 1639, it is home to several enchanting historical homes, top-quality Guilford Green restaurants, and family-friendly attractions.

From local boutique shops, art galleries, one of the oldest farmer’s markets, and fairs and festivals, summer life on the city green is an experience you won’t want to miss.

Stroll along with one of the many shoreline hikes and historical landmarks or sail the open sea from the marina. If walking isn’t your style, don’t worry! Shoreline Segways has easy and exciting transportation options ready to go.

Things To Do In Guilford Green

Anyone visiting the area must stop off at the oldest stone house in New England at Henry Whitfield State Museum, also known as The Whitfield House. The town green is an ancient and integral part of Guilford culture and hosts many town events, including the Guilford Agricultural Fair (the 2nd oldest in Connecticut!), the Craft Expo, and Concerts On The Green events all summer long.

Take a drive along the coast and see the small but breathtaking Jacobs Beach with a view of Falkner Island Lighthouse, which you can also visit via boat taxi. Stop by the Guilford Green Marina and catch a glimpse of the famous and historical Grass Island Shack.

Pick your own apples at Bishop’s Orchard and stock up on local fresh produce at The Dudley Farm and Farmer’s Market. Visit the delicious Guilford Green restaurant circuit or tee off at Guilford Lakes Golf Club, one of the highest-rated executive par three courses in New England.

If you’re interested in a bit of the spooky side of life, take a tour of the Alder Brook Cemetery, or for the history buffs, spend the afternoon exploring the Medad Stone Tavern Museum or the Hyland House Museum.

Still to come in July are exciting events on the Green, including Community Picnic and Fireworks on the 9th, Guilford Art Center Craft Expo July 15-17, and the 2nd Annual New England Taco Fest at Guilford Fairgrounds on the 30th to the 31st.

However you decide to fill your time, you’ll find ample entertainment and historical charm in the early summer weeks at Guilford Green.
