In 2012, the Bluefish became the first team in Atlantic League history to reach 1,000 victories. It was a huge milestone for a franchise that today, stands as one of only two remaining charter teams throughout the entire league. The 'Fish initially brought baseball back to Park City in 1998, and advanced to the league championship series in a losing effort. A year later, though, they returned with their first league title after defeating the Somerset Patriots.

The team's early success established a winning tradition–in fact, the Bluefish didn't suffer their first losing season until their eighth year of existence. Winning hasn't been the only tradition in Bridgeport, however. The Bluefish battle the Long Island Ducks every season for the Ferry Cup, trying to establish regional supremacy on the baseball diamond instead of by firing a barrage of used baseballs across the Long Island Sound.

The interactive exhibits at Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre chronicle the impact of Alberta’s oil boom from the first drilling in 1947 to discoveries in the present day. Traipse back in time through the Centre’s collection of historical artifacts, letting eyes feast on a banquet of oil-patch memorabilia, rig equipment, and models. Or, ensconced in a theatre designed to look like a giant drill bit, visitors can embark on a virtual journey 1,700 meters below the earth's surface. A cadre of expert guides circulates throughout the exhibits, stopping to answer visitors’ questions such as, "How did oil transform Alberta’s formerly agrarian economy?" and "Does oil really hate water that much?" Guests may also meander through the Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame, which pays homage to the enormous contributions of 124 petroleum-steeped pioneers and heroes through a series of photos and personal stories. Members of the Leduc #1 drilling crew and Hall of Famers have also been known to put in appearances at the Centre, regaling lucky day-trippers with tales of bygone years and reenactments of their favourite moments in oil’s 374-million-year history.

As the top affiliate of the New York Islanders, the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers continue their tear through the 2010-2011 season and their quest for the Atlantic Division crown with a pair of upcoming home game. With the first game, ice enthusiasts can cool their heels with kith and kin and watch team points leader Rhett Rakhshani go toe-to-toe with Springfield’s top-scoring Matt Calvert in the battle for center ice. In the second game, catch goalie Kevin Poulin and his ability to send pucks into the 8th dimension as he tries to stop sneaky Portland winger Mark Mancari. Aside from the hard-hitting ice action, Sound Tiger fanatic families can catch the zany antics of Storm, Bridgeport Sound’s lovable blue tiger mascot.

The only zoo in the state and a participant in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Program, Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo has charmed visitors for more than 80 years with more than 300 cared-for critters and a mission that minds the tenets of ecological education, conservation, and recreation. Patrons brandishing a Director's Circle membership can visit the zoo an unlimited number of times for one year, plenty of time to navigate the sundry indoor and outdoor exhibits on the back of a Roomba. Guests can espy such endangered species as the siberian tiger, red wolf, and golden lion tamarin, as well as the zoo's most recent denizens on display: two canada lynx and a pair of common rhea. In spring, patrons can go snout-to-snout with a rare chacoan peccary piglet, whose birth made the zoo the first in the Northeast to host an infant of her species and prompted a feature in the Monroe Courier. Birds ride unsuspecting propeller beanies in the South American rainforest exhibit's free-flight aviary, and children play interspecies games of Heads Up, Seven Up in the prairie-dog exhibit's pop-up viewing capsules. After chowing down at the Peacock Café, groups can befriend more statuesque creatures on a vibrantly painted carousel.
