    Visit the Connecticut River Valley this fall and join the Essex Steam Train and Riverboat for a spectacular natural phenomenon on one of their riverboat’s specialty cruises. The Becky Thatcher will set sail for a special Tree and Barn Swallow cruise adventure on the night of September 22. At this event, you’ll get to see hundreds of birds converge on the lower Connecticut River, and watch as they swarm into a beautifully choreographed flock over Goose Island. This 2 1/2-hour cruise down the Connecticut River will also feature a complimentary hot cider or cider cocktail. Be sure to book your tickets now online!
