Create a hands-on history lesson with a visit to Putnam Memorial State Park, site of the Continental Army's 1779 winter encampment in Bethel, Connecticut.

Easy walk with 9yr old daughter. Paved loop path. Plenty of shade.

I stayed to the east of Putnam Park Pond, which offered gorgeous views of the water and a paved trail (former road) for a stroll. This side has multiple picnic areas and swing sets for the kids.

Decent easy loop with the dog. Lots of foot (and paw) traffic. Little historical spots along the way keep it amusing.

Great place to take my young kids for a walk. The lessons they learned about the parks history as a late 1700's military encampment along the way made it perfect for some fresh air, exercise and education.

One of my first ventures into the outdoors, history, and hiking. There is a Youth Group camping area.
There are reenactments throughout the year. There is a museum with great info. There is a picnic area on a lake across the street from the historic area.
