CT Bucket List: Local TikTok star showcases fun spots in Connecticut

FOX61's Keith McGilvery and Margaux Farrell headed for the wilderness without heading outside, and this time they brought a local TikTok star along for the fun.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — If you’re craving warmer weather with an eye on spring, this CT bucket list stop is just for you.

FOX61's Keith McGilvery and Margaux Farrell headed for the wilderness without heading outside, and this time they brought a local TikTok star along for the fun.

Wallingford native, 24-year-old Kayla Murphy has found a niche for showcasing Connecticut on TikTok and producing videos that are viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. 

Murphy says she loves to find the hidden gems and the cool spots that most people do not know about our state.

For the first CT Bucket List stop, Kayla took Keith and Margaux to Bass Pro Shop in Bridgeport. You may be thinking, why go to a store? But it's not just a store. 

It’s a 25,000 square-foot adventure all under one roof.

"You are walking into an outdoor Disney World," said Mike Vollero, from Bass Pro Shops. "This is not an average retailer."

At Bass Pro Shops in Bridgeport, there is something for everyone who loves the outdoors. The space is uniquely designed to celebrate the natural beauty of our state.

Murphy says this store truly does have something for everyone and the aesthetic of the shop makes you feel like you are in the great outdoors.

"I love the paintings, I love the taxidermy that is here," said Murphy. "It makes me feel like I am in the wild wilderness of Connecticut."

At Bass Pro Shops, you'll find an indoor, underwater-themed bowling alley, arcade games, bow hunting lessons, live animal displays, and so much more!

Be sure to tune in on Thursday morning, as Keith and Margaux follow Kayla on a bucket list adventure that she has planned out in East Haddam.
