Channel 3 goes to Glastonbury

Posted: Updated:

20 Towns in Twenty Days featured the town of Glastonbury on Monday.

Channel 3’s Mark Zinni took a ride on the Rocky Hill to Glastonbury Ferry on Monday to take in a breathtaking ride across the Connecticut River.

According to the Department of Transportation, the ferry is the nation’s oldest continuously operating ferry service.

It dates back to 1655, when a raft and long poles got people across. Now there is a three-car barge that gets pulled across by a tugboat.

The ferry operates April through November, and costs $5 for one ride.

Channel 3 stopped at Ken's Corner Breakfast and Lunch, which has been serving up food for 28 years.

The Hebron Avenue restaurant has been voted one of the top 20 places to eat in Connecticut, and on any day of the week you will find Ken, his wife and their children in the kitchen, whipping up anything you want.

Ken D'Attilio said he credits much of his success to the special people who live in town.

"Glastonbury town has been fantastic, it's been supportive, the people are just wonderful here - we've been here for 28-years, it's amazing, it's gone like that," he said.

The restaurant is open seven days per week starting at 7 a.m. For more info, click here.

On Monday, Channel 3 donated $1,000 to the Cherish the Children Foundation, which also received a $500 gift card from PC Richard and Son. For more information on the organization, click here.
