Connecticut Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Connecticut

Country Driving: Follow the rolling, twisting roads of Litchfield County, such as U.S. 7, U.S. 44, and Route 63, through the charmed villages of Kent, Salisbury, and Litchfield.

Maritime History: The village of Mystic is packed with interesting nautical attractions related to Connecticut's rich seafaring history.

Urban Exploring: Anchored by Yale University, downtown New Haven now (finally) buzzes with hip restaurants, smart boutiques, and acclaimed theaters.

Literary Giants: In the same historic Hartford neighborhood, you can explore the homes—and legacies—of Mark Twain and Harriett Beecher Stowe.

Antiques Hunting: You'll find numerous fine shops, galleries, and auction houses specializing in antiques all over the state. Two standout towns: Woodbury and Putnam.
