For the third smallest state in the U.S., Connecticut is truly packed with opportunities for fun for the entire family with easy access to whatever adventure you desire. This southernmost New England state celebrates its vibrant maritime heritage, which includes whaling, shipbuilding and the construction of the world’s first nuclear submarine, the famed Nautilus. Wander through the quaint coastal towns along the Connecticut shoreline, such as the beloved Mystic Seaport, or stroll along the gorgeous beaches.
Foodies will enjoy hitting the trails—the culinary trails that is, including the Chocolate Trail, Beer Trail, Pizza Trail and Wine Trail, where you can sample from Connecticut’s 25 vineyards. Outdoor adventure comes in all forms—from the top family theme parks to tubing the state’s beautiful rivers, riding the Essex Steam Train and Riverboat, or hiking in the many state parks. Don’t miss the thrill of Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos—luxury spas, fine dining and world-class entertainment await. Connecticut will amaze and delight.
