It might be the third smallest state in America, but it’s big in attractions and history. The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, written in 1639, was an important outline for our Founding Fathers when they wrote the United States Constitution over 100 years later. These days Connecticut is a major hub for finance, manufacturing, and a number of maritime trades. You can go sailing on the Long Island Sound or explore its emerging wine culture. Connecticut hotels are ready to make sure you have the trip of a lifetime when visiting “The Constitutional State.”
So, you want to explore this East Coast dreamland? On the shore of the Long Island Sound lies New Haven. After your flight lands, drop the bags at the hotel and start your jaunt downtown for a walking tour of the magnificent campus at Yale University. You’ll feel like a student at Hogwarts as you meander around the immense, Gothic-style buildings on the campus grounds. Poke your head into the university’s art gallery and admire works by John Trumbull, Vincent van Gogh, and Robert Field.
Looking for a slice of old, coastal New England? Head to the northern shores of the state and experience the sleepy town of Mystic. Check out Mystic Seaport, the largest maritime museum in the world. Some of the historical ships housed there include schooners, sandbagger sloops, and 19th-century whaling vessels. After walking through this incredible museum will build an appetite, fill your belly at one of the fish markets serving up the best lobster, fried clams, and clam chowder.
