Squantz Pond State Park: Squantz Pond is a smaller pond attached to the giant ecosystem, Candlewood Lake. There are many hiking trails, swimming areas, beaches, and room for sports. 



'''Do'''

New Fairfield is a small town in SouthWestern, Connecticut, and tends to get the most attraction during the Summer or Fall, due to the amount of outdoor activities for people to visit. This town is not often visited by tourists and is primarily occupied of commuters that drive to New York City for their employment.


'''Eat'''

Brunos Pizzeria: A small, unorthodox, family owned, pizzeria located in the center of the town. This pizzeria is known for its specialty pizzas, rather than plain slices. When ordering you will go up to the counter and choose what you want, pay, then sit down at a table of your choosing and the wait staff will bring you your order. When there you can buy by the slice or by the pie. This pizzeria is popular within the younger community of New Fairfield.

New Fairfield Food Center: A small grocery store with an attached Italian deli, this location has gained popularity for its sandwiches. Small amount of seating outside for patrons who want to sit down and eat. Most patrons will order a sandwich and will look through the grocery store in order to find something to eat/drink on the side, this convenience is possible because the patron is able to pay for everything they want to purchase at the same time.

Main Moon Chinese Kitchen: A small Chinese takeout store located in the center of town next to Brunos Pizzeria. The menu has a wide variety of Chinese style foods. The interior is very small, with only two small tables to sit from. One reason people enjoy this restaurant can see into the back and watch as your food is cooked, assuring the patron the food is fresh.

The Goodie Shop: Located next to New Fairfield Food Center, is a small, family owned bakery. The shop is known for their baked goods, but also sells ice cream, coffee, gelato, and more. It has enough room to seat 20 people, so no matter what time of the day a customer wants to go, there will be ample seating.


'''Sleep:'''

New Fairfield Motel: A small motel located close to Candlewood Lake, with recent renovations, has rooms to fit 1-5 people. Each room is different within style and the rooms are set up less like an average hotel and more like a bedroom in someones home.
