Sometimes you can't always make it away for a vacation in the summer time. The great thing about living in Bridgeport Connecticut is the abundance of events and attractions all around the area. Who needs to leave town when you can take a "stay-cation" getaway?
One of the best weekend trips you can make in Bridgeport is to the Connecticut Beardsely Zoo. Serving Connecticut for over 80 years, it is dedicated to the preservation of endangered animals through education, conservation, research and recreation.
It is a great getaway for kids, young and old. More than 300 animals call this place home, including some endangered species. The Zoo also boasts a South American rainforest, a prairie dog exhibit, a New England Farmyard and a hoofstock trail.
On top of all the ongoing fun, there are also always special events peppered throughout the year. Here are a few upcoming ones to watch out for…
July 16 - July 30
8 p.m. - 10 p.m.
Come watch this free performance of Shakespeare's famous "Twelfth Night" at the Peacock Pavilion. The zoo welcomes picnics so you could easily make a day of it - start the day off exploring the zoo, pack a picnic basket for dinner and end the night with Shakespearean play. A true trip away from home!
Evening Lecture Series: Reforestation
7 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Here is your chance to learn from a respected educator on the subject of reforestation. Dr. Herster Barres of Reforest the Tropics discusses research and plans for a CO2 off-set program. Once again, this is Free to the public and a great learning opportunity available right in your Bridgeport backyard.
If Bridgeport sounds like the kind of place that you would like to call home, give me a call. I would love to show you some wonderful Bridgeport Real Estate in the Brooklawn area. If you want the luxury of living in a gated community away from the city life, yet convenient to all major highways, public transportation, and tons of "stay-cation" opportunities, then Riverwalk Condominiums may be just what you are looking for.
