Full of urban dash and natural appeal, Connecticut is an antidote for a winter and spring spent indoors. Summer is where the Nutmeg State shines, from the coastline to riverways, casinos to pristine state parks.
When it comes to nature, Connecticut is probably best known for its beautiful but modest rolling green hills, meandering streams and lovely shoreline. But there are individual natural highlights as well, each worth a visit on its own.
The state is home to two of the world’s largest casinos and options to excite the entire family, from active outdoor pursuits to rainy-day diversions.
What’s the best way to really experience Connecticut? Ziplining through treetops? Finding your moment of zen at a luxurious spa? Or would you rather take a trip back into history, or savor New England’s best seafood at a real roadside clam shack? With so many attractions and activities in one small state, Connecticut offers a complete experience in a compact package.
