On Wednesday, Channel 3 took a trip to a city that offers some of the best views in Connecticut.
20 Towns in Twenty Days put Meriden in the spotlight, and Channel 3’s Mark Zinni took a tour up to Castle Craig, which is 1,002 feet above sea level, offering a 360-degree view of Meriden.
Anyone can hike, or drive to the top, from May 1 through Oct. 31. At the top, you can easily spot New Haven, Long Island Sound, The Berkshires, and so much more.
Channel 3 made a $1,000 donation on Wednesday to the Meriden Humane Society, where they help hundreds of cats and dogs each year.
They society also received a $500 gift card from PC Richard and Son.
The volunteers at the no-kill shelter work hard all of the time to help as many animals as they can.
"We adopt over 1,000 cats a year and on average, over 300 dogs a year, so that's a lot. We're into it and we do it. It's 24/7,” said Marlena DiBianco, of the Meriden Humane Society.
The organization does not get any money from the city or state. To help make a donation, click here.
