Visit Connecticut - Rest & Relaxation
The most southern New England State, Connecticut is bordered by New York on the west, Rhode Island on the east, Long Island Sound on the south and Massachusetts on the North. Your travel to this state can bring you to attractions that include dinosaurs, sea history, roller coasters and more. Learn about this state’s ship building history when you visit the Mystic Seaport, or follow fossilized dinosaur tracks at the Dinosaur State Park in Rocky Hill. Connecticut offers you a large variety of things to do when you visit here.
In the fifteenth century, the Age of Discovery in Europe started a wide exploration of the world and brought the explorers to North America. The first regions that were explored by the Dutch were New York and Connecticut, with the English following shortly afterwards. Around one hundred people and the Puritan minister Thomas Hooker settled into the area that became Hartford, CT. The residents of Connecticut became explorers themselves, with John Ledyard traveling the world and Hiram Bingam III finding Machu Picchu in Peru. Residents of this state also found all kinds of resources and knowledge. Plus, William Redfield, a meteorologist, discovered the direction of hurricane winds plus unearthed Eubrontes dinosaur prints in the Rocky Hill.
There are many regions in this state that have reasons to visit them. When you are touring the United States and Connecticut is on your list, you will find plenty to do in the Fairfield Region which is found on the shore of the Long Island Sound. It has many great cities including Fairfield, Bridgeport, Norwalk and Westport. You’ll be able to find some great restaurants and shops, plus enjoy family attractions such as the Discovery Museum, Beardsley Zoon, Maritime Aquarium, the Barnum Museum and the Stepping Stones Museum for Children.
Mystic is a great place for sightseeing and is located on the southeast corner of the state. It has attractions here that show the unique character of New England. You’ll find a re-created 19th century seaside village along with the historic ship building museum. The Mystic Aquarium is associated with Robert Ballard who  discovered the Titanic, and the museum itself has a great exhibit of the Titanic.
For a day of scenic leisure, the Lichfield Region is a host of picturesque farms, vineyards and wineries, villages and all kinds of antique shopping. … plus there is rafting in the Housatonic River, and fishing as well. You won’t find any saltwater shorelines here, but they have plenty of ponds and rivers. Connecticut also holds many state parks you can explore, or you can check out one of their two national parks, the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley National Heritage Center in Putnam, or the Weir Farm National Historic Site in Wilton.

No matter where you choose to go in Connecticut, it is a great way to see America and part of its history and rich culture.
