About your host

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.

What we’ll do

I can take a minimum of 2 and maximum of 6 people on a stroll from one end of Main Street and nearby streets to explore all things Willimantic. The Mill Museum, Garden on the Bridge, Garibaldi's Restaurant, murals depicting thread mill scenes from days gone by, remnants of these thread mills, art exhibits, foot bridges, and other restaurants! Think Jamaican Me Crazy, Not Only Juice, A Cupcake…

What else you should know

There are restrooms all along our route. There are some hills so be prepared for a little huffing and puffing. If you are interested in this area to live, I can connect you to what & who you need.

What I’ll provide

I'm a baker with a great reputation for making goodies of all kinds. You can pick your flavor and I'll deliver.

What to bring

comfortable shoes/boots depending on the weather
wear clothing in layers to be comfortable
umbrella if necessary (what's a little rain, anyway?)
camera/phone to take pics of all the cool stuff we'll see
spending money in case you want to shop (of course you do)
