We had so much fun visiting Kent, Connecticut, for the first time. Everyone in town was so friendly and eager to speak with us. The food was great, our lodgings were exquisitely comfortable, and I would’ve traveled much farther to see the area’s natural beauty. I’ve not seen much written about Kent. Still, it was a wonderful weekend getaway, and I think it would be the perfect destination for bachelor or bachelorette parties, family vacations, romantic getaways, and everything in between. Though it’s a small town, it’s packed with many great things to eat, see, and do, and I hope this Kent, Connecticut, Luxury Travel Guide inspires you to visit!
While in Kent, CT, we explored the charming town and were repeatedly encouraged to try Kinglsey Tavern. I’m so glad we did! Everything was tasty and fresh, and the service was excellent. We dined outside, and though it was humid, it gave us a lovely view of the sunset. This restaurant was like the rest of Kent, such a pleasant surprise. It’s not often we find such spectacular food in small towns, but this restaurant wouldn’t be out of place in and any sprawling metropolis was a perfect way to end our first night in beautiful Kent.
During our time in beautiful Kent, Connecticut, we visited nearby Kent Falls State Park to hike, see the waterfalls engorged by recent heavy rains, and enjoy the cooler weather. The hike was simple and only took about 40 minutes round trip, which may have been elongated since I stopped to take photos. Overall, this was my favorite state park we’ve visited in Connecticut, and I think you’ll agree that it’s truly splendid!
The Victorian, part of The Kent Collection, a set of five distinct rental properties in Kent, CT, was our home away from home for a weekend, and we had a lovely stay in their Wedding Suite.
