Spring Break Treasures in CT - Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison

 We weren’t on break last week (usually we avoid taking time off during school vacation weeks), but took time out of our regular schedule to join friends on a road trip to Madison, CT. It’s been a really long winter and I texted my friend and told her to have her kids bring their scooters so that we can explore the trails in case it was too cold to even enjoy the beach. Hammonasset Beach State Park is one of our favorite Connecticut beaches and we prefer to visit in the off season when parking is free and the beach is not crowded. However, this beach and surrounding trails is a family destination during all four seasons.
