Prestige Salon & Spa keeps statures in good standing with a toolbox of skin-nourishing and health-inducing services. Release skin that has long since stopped paying its union dues with a clarifying microdermabrasion treatment ($99), which removes dead skin cells to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation. For an hour of blissful kneading, choose a Swedish massage ($70) to increase circulation, or the aromatherapy version with scented essential oils ($75) to rejuvenate skin without restoring so much youth that you turn back into a baby. Deep-tissue massage ($75) descends into soft tissue and joints to liberate pain while increasing flexibility and range of motion. Prestige Salon & Spa's bright confines feature yellow walls and white trim for a cheery atmosphere to match the cheer-inducing services.
Each of the five participating Connecticut Landmarks offers a glimpse inside the domestic lifestyles of the state's early settlers, patriots, and prominent citizens.

Members also receive a free subscription to the Landmark News newsletter, invitations to special events, a 10% discount on all museum shops, and a discount subscription to Connecticut Explored, a magazine that chronicles Connecticut's history.
March Farms's hospitable agriculturists welcome families to a third-generation farm for autumnal activities as well as just-picked produce and fresh-baked treats. Admission grants visitors unlimited meandering through the sky-high stalks of a 5-acre corn maze. After picking a duo of gorgeous gourds, set up a picnic beside the hayloft playscape—a farm fantasy land complete with a miniature hayloft, schoolhouse, and playhouse, as well as a 450-foot tricycle track on which kids can pedal recklessly without worrying about state speed limits. Autumn adventurers can visit 11 a.m.–5 p.m. on weekends. Alternatively, treat noses to the aroma of the centrally located market and bakery, stocked with vegetables and fruits, such as a 4-quart basket of apples, fresh from Mother Earth's renewable cupboard. Baked treats are available daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with delicacies including a six-pack of cider donuts or a three-pack of large cookies.
