Looking for something to do with your mom this season? I highly recommend a taking her to on a day trip to Bethlehem, CT to stamp your Christmas letters.

The post office provides a wide array of specialty stamps for your cards and packages (see below) giving them a special personal touch, and the town of Bethlehem, CT itself provides a quaint backdrop and plenty of places to go for ladies who like to lunch.

My mom and I visited the town, post office, and The Painted Pony restaurant on a sunny Friday and had a wonderful time navigating the beautiful landscapes in and around this Litchfield County town. See the itinerary for our recommendations on where to go, what to do, and notable neighbors to drop in on while you’re in the area.
