Twitter has teamed up with the state of Connecticut to help travelers.
July 3, 2012– For those traveling in and around Connecticut this summer especially to one of the states many state parks, state forests or swimming areas, having Twitter on a mobile device is recommended. The state of Connecticut has teamed up with Twitter to inform travelers when the state parks, swimming areas or car lots are full.
State officials are expecting a large turnout of visitors to its parks and suggest an alternative location in case the first location is full. With July 4 falling in midweek and with the excessively hot temperatures the state expects its parks to be much more busier than normal.
State parks in Connecticut that often times close due to parking capacity on long summer weekends include Rocky Neck, Squantz Pond, Pattaconk, Wadsworht, Sleeping Giant, Millers Pond and Kent Falls.
There are a number of twitter accounts you can follow to get information about the different parks in Connecticut. Officials warned that unseasonably hot temperatures would remain on the east coast of the U.S. through July 4 and possibly into the weekend. They suggest drinking lots of water, wearing and reapplying sun block regularly and making sure older people are not outside too long.
