New Haven, Mystic, and the Coast



As you drive northeast along Interstate 95, culturally rich New Haven is the final urban obstacle between southwestern Connecticut's overdeveloped coast and southeastern Connecticut's quiet shoreline. The remainder of the jagged coast, which stretches to Rhode Island, consists of small fishing villages, quiet hamlets, and relatively undisturbed beaches. The only interruptions along this seashore are the industry and piers of New London and Groton. Mystic, Stonington, Old Saybrook, Clinton, and Guilford are havens for fans of antiques and boutiques. The Mashantucket Pequot Reservation owns and operates the Foxwoods Casino and the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center, near the town of Ledyard north of Groton, and the Mohegan Tribe run the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville. These two properties have added noteworthy hotels and marquee restaurants in recent years.
