I’ve been exploring and writing about Connecticut since 2006. After a decade, I began compiling CTMQ guides for each town in the state. I plan on “completing” Plainville CTMQ-style… as well as the other 168 towns, cities, and boroughs in Connecticut. That is the ultimate goal of CTMQ.
If I’ve missed anything in town or if anything has closed or changed, please let me know.

I “completed” Plainville in August 2018 but new and/or previously unknown-to-me CTMQ-worthy places and things open from time to time, so a town may never really be “complete.” I will, of course, continue to seek out and write about these new places and things as best I can.
