A week in Connecticut

Jump to last reply

Three gals in their late 30s are planning on spending a week together in August. We are going to fly into Providence. Have already been to Newport and the Cape and really enjoyed it. We would like to explore Connecticut. Could you give us some suggestions on what to see any do and a few towns to make as home bases for a few nights.?
We love culture, theatre, good food, local spots, beaches, and hiking. Not big on casinos.
Trying to gauge if there is enough to do for a week or if we should stay about 4 days in CT and then explore somewhere else. Not spent any time in Providence, so wondering if that would merit a few days as well.
Love staying at B and Bs, but since there are three of us this time, not sure if we will be able to do so. Thanks so much for any suggestions!
