Seymour, Connecticut - My Town
Seymour has a small downtown area, with a variety of antique shops, post office, liqueur store, and my favorite, a cute gifty store called Tickled Pink! What I love is the shops all work together on different occasions to host times for special deals or fun.
Seymour has a theater called The Strand Theater, which dates back to World War 1 era. Where it hosted live performances, to movies and etc. Soupy Sales was known to perform here too. Such history.
There are many pizza places and Italian restaurants in Seymour. We have found a few we like, including a great little bakery that makes amazing grinder rolls.
Beyond downtown, my other favorite parts of Seymour are all around water. We have a great middle of town waterfall, by the new Memorial Park that is being redone by the city of Seymour as a Veterans Memorial Park.
There is something so pretty about a waterfall!!!
My other favorite scene in town is looking across the Housatonic River. It is so beautiful on the water banks. And to see the ice that has formed on the river this winter is fun too!
Along with beautiful river scenes, there are many neat old barns. It makes me always want to stop on the side of the road to photograph. This is one of my favorites near my house.
As I drive around town, there are always neat views. Enjoy a few of these....
Of course as you can see it is currently winter....but I believe there is a true beauty even in the winter look!
This is our middle school where my son goes to school. And yes that is snow!!!
Well last but not least, here is a picture of my house in Seymour!
We are looking forward to a little Blizzard fun this weekend. Should be some more neat pictures to post for you next week. I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our little small town!
