I hate to be the one to break it to ya, but it's almost the end of August. And in a few short weeks summer will be over. I know, I know, it's awful. (Please don't shoot the messenger.) Chances are you only got to a handful of the fun New England summer activities that you wanted, so I'm here to remind you that although fall is looming- there is still time! Here are fifteen things to do before the end of summer: 

 1. Sit on a stump and eat wood-fired lobster and clams at The Place.

2. Rent a kayak and paddle the Thimble Islands.

3. Pack a picnic and enjoy it in the Elizabeth Park Rose Garden with friends.

4. Go to a drive-in movie theater.

6. Root for the home team at a Hartford Yard Goats Game.

7. Take a free outdoor yoga class.

8. Attend a Greenwich or Farmington Polo match.
