Ruth

I've taken hundreds of people on tours of my area, highlighting the places little known, secret scenery, dining of various cultures, advised on housing, shopping and all things Connecticut. I've lead tours with the Last Green Valley, planned and chaired the local chocolate festival for over a decade, organized ethnic cooking classes, and write restaurant reviews for the local newspaper. I know most business owners who would welcome you! I especially enjoy helping my international friends find what they need. And to brag about where I live. I am a proud resident of Romantic Willimantic

Where you'll be

We have many murals and gardens in town that people don't know how to locate, quirky things to see like frogs galore with a history behind them. We also have a lot of history with the thread mills being here. We have a railroad museum that's seasonal and we have trails that give you walking, biking and skiing opportunities. Because I have personal relationships with most of the business owners on Main, I can tailor a tour with guests in mind.
