The coastline of Connecticut is dotted with flowing rivers emptying into the dark blue waters of Long Island Sound. Resting on the banks of those drifting waters are some of New England’s finest towns. Take notice of the one whose skyline is accentuated by red brick buildings and the towering steeple of the First Congressional Church. It’s the town of New London, Connecticut, and we have a feeling your visit will leave you with remarkable lasting memories. If you’re ready to lay head down at New London, CT hotels, then read on, for this small town is what dreams are made of.
New England mornings start early with the rising of the sun, the crowing of roosters, and a low-lying mist that drapes an eerily beautiful blanket over the landscape. Choose one of our hotels in New London, CT near the Connecticut College Arboretum and feel Mother Nature’s hands on your shoulders as you wander down paths surrounded by dogwoods, conifers, and junipers. The rising sun slowly causes the mist to vanish for the day, but have on fear; it shall be back tomorrow.
Aristotle once said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” Use one of our New London rental cars to get to the Lyman Allyn Art Museum and discover the inner meanings of works of art by such renowned masters of the canvas like John Trumbull, Frederick Edwin Church, and Rembrandt Peale. We know there’s something inside of Thomas Cole’s “Mount Aetna,” but we haven’t been able to look deep enough to find it. Can you?
