GLENBROOKE'S NEW SUMMER OFFERINGS...PLUS, PLAN YOUR BEST VACATION YET WITH THE PAMPERED TOURIST

HERE’S THE SCOOP…


YOUR SUMMER JUST GOT BETTER WITH GLENBROOKE


We have been spreading the news about one of our favorite summer spots for a couple of years now, but things just keep getting better and more popular with kids and parents at Glenbrooke Outdoor Sports Center on the Glastonbury/East Hartford line. They are now offering payment plans for the always affordable deluxe 8-week Drop Off Day Camp Program. It's 35 hours per week of fun ALL. DAY. LONG. for kids and it's only $299 per week. Or, if you are new to Glenbrooke and just want a spot to cool off and swim with the fam, their new $500 Introductory Family Fun Pass (new families only) is a summer steal (they are also offering a weekend-only option for $350). Looking to teach the super littles to swim? They have red-cross certified evening swim lessons for $225 for ALL 6 WEEKS (jaw drop). In addition, they have pickleball, jump rope, basketball, soccer, arts & crafts, games, and more. Check out the pictures to see the grounds and all the good times families have been having without you (wink)! OR...click the links below learn more about it all.






TRULY EXTRAORDINARY TRAVEL EXPERIENCES WITH THE PAMPERED TOURIST


Juggling all the things and planning a trip can be overwhelming, but not if you have Karen Gillis of The Pampered Tourist doing it for you! Karen is so well traveled and experienced in the world of travel planning that she creates the most remarkable, memory-making experiences for both individuals, small groups, and families. This is Karen's 2nd act. It was meant to be really...after more than two decades in biotech executive roles that took her around the globe, the transition to luxury travel concierge was a natural evolution. As a foodie, avid golfer, and tennis player herself, Karen understands the importance of finding the perfect balance between relaxation and adventure. Where do you want to go? Asia...Europe...Mexico? KAREN. IS. YOUR. GIRL...she'll curate a trip that includes: hidden culinary gems, exclusive sporting event experiences, local immersive excursions, or bespoke cocktail bars (Can we get a YES PLEASE?!). She has access to exclusive amenities, upgrades, and experiences that will next level your trip. All you have to do is show up and make memories! She will cover the details. Are you in yet? Well...if you are still pondering where you'd like to go, check out her Facebook Group: The Golden Key Travel Club or follow her on social FB: The Pampered Tourist INSTA: @pamperedtourist. OR, if you're ready NOW...schedule a FREE consult: https://calendly.com/thepamperedtourist/free-consultation-thepamperedtourist


And, oh, did we mention she lives right here in Glastonbury...so winner, winner.




PORTLAND QUARRY SITE TO BECOME NORDIC SPA


We know it's not Glastonbury, but it's close enough and certainly interesting enough to mention...there is a Nordic Spa coming to a quarry site just over the line at 311 Brownstone Avenue in Portland. The property was owned by a couple who restored the land to its natural beauty (BIG love to them) and are in the process of selling it to a company out of Canada. Pomeroy Lodging is a family-owned company which plans to transform the site into a Nordic spa and wellness center that will operate year-round. According to The Middletown Press, the spa will include a two-story bathhouse, bistro, outdoor patio, heated pedestrian walkways, steam rooms, salt hydrotherapy, a pool, fire pits, barrel saunas and more. We think there is no place like this in the state so BRING. IT. ON! Check out the renderings and photos of the site below. STUNNING.






 
 
 
 

ODDS & ENDS...




*The town approved a proposal from the historical society for events at The Welles-Shipman House in South Glastonbury. What a GORG spot for intimate weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and more!


*We reported on this a long time ago, but people keep asking on Facebook about the lot next to Bruegger's since it's under construction. It's going to be a PeoplesBank. Now you know.
