  • The Long Ridge Tavern
    While most restaurants have one dining room, the Zagat-rated Long Ridge Tavern has four distinct dining rooms, each with their own ambiance. The main 80-seat dining room referred to as The Tavern, features a grand fieldstone fireplace and a 50-foot antique bar where patrons can order drinks to complement their steaks, seafood, or gourmet sandwiches. The 75-seat Palmer room—named after restaurant’s original owner, Charles Palmer—showcases the building’s original post-and-beam construction and large fieldstone walls. In lieu of large seating capacities, the Hunt and Nutmeg rooms offer patrons intimate dining experiences and views of Long Ridge Tavern’s garden. Additionally, on Friday and Saturday evenings from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., these historic dining rooms come to life as musicians fill their air with tunes.

  • Stamford Museum and Nature Center
    Stamford Museum & Nature Center has come a long way since its founding in 1936. Over the decades, its sprawling grounds have grown to include areas focused on nature, agriculture, astronomy, art, and history. On a hill lies the Henri Bendel Mansion. This once-private residence echoes classic British manor houses with its lead-framed glass windows, half-timbered walls, and stone gargoyles that speak in cockney accents. Visitors can view the ground's sculptures before going inside to gaze at the museum galleries and rotating exhibitions, which explore topics in art and pop culture. Back outside, more than 80 acres of nature trails wind through the trees. One such trail leads to Nature's Playground, where kids soar down slides and play in a treehouse. Elsewhere, the accessible Wheels in the Woods trail lets people of all abilities explore the forest. Crossing over Bendel's Pond brings visitors to Heckscher Farm, where kids can learn about basic animal care. The New England?style farm, which stands next to an otter pond, home to otters Bert and Edie, encompasses structures such as the Cheshire Barn, which was built in 1750 and houses heritage-breed animals, including chickens, pigs, goats, sheep, cows, and llamas. The Stamford Observatory sits west of the farm and offers visitors an opportunity to peer into a 22-inch research telescope (on Friday evenings, weather permitting), to view the night sky. Also explore a new addition to Heckscher Farm, Heckscher WILD!, a space featuring live animals and plants from around the world that provides visitors with the chance to interact through feedings, demonstrations, and special events. The Stamford Museum & Nature Center offers programs and events for adults as well, including Farm to Table Suppers and the Annual Food and Wine Celebration.
