We ❤ New Milford!
The start of a new week means a lot of different things for most of us, but here at the Wolf it means one thing!! It means we get to celebrate another Wolf "hometown of the week" and after a big spin of the "wheel O' towns" we are celebrating New Milford, Connecticut.
Being that both Jess and I are new to country music fans in Connecticut, we need your help in getting to know New Milford, CT a bit better. We do know that the Housatonic river runs threw it, but that's about it! Is there one thing you can tell us about New Milford that makes New Milford unique? If we ever find ourselves in New Milford, is there one thing we need to do or try? We asked and you guys helped us out bigtime with 4 things we had no clue about.
