Today is the kind of day to stay inside, turn on the A/C and stay cool, but some people are bound to head to a local beach and all of the state swimming areas are open, except for Pachaug State Forest, at Voluntown.
Green Falls Pond, at the park in Voluntown, was closed as of June 13 for dam work. The swimming area will reopen when water levels rise back to normal levels, according to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
It’s also a great day to grab an ice cream and there are many places in the state to enjoy a cone or a bowl.
