Connecticut – Mark Twain’s Nutmeg State

March 30th, 2022

From some of the oldest points of interest in the United States to some of the most modern marvels America has to offer; from the quiet and solitude of Mark Twain’s small-town life to the excitement and nightlife of America’s largest casinos; from the foothills of the Appalachias to the very shores on which our ancestors first set foot on the solid ground of the new world – you’ll find it all here in Connecticut!

The diversity of Connecticut, one of the original thirteen colonies to declare statehood and independence, is astounding. And being one of our smallest states, it is easy to partake in some of everything the area has to offer in just a short stay, or fill an extended stay with enough different activities to appeal to any member of your family.

Spend the day walking through the woods and your evening at one of the largest casinos in the country, with time out for dinner at a world-class restaurant and an entertainment break with one of the top stars in the world. Spend the day at one of the picturesque beaches and your evening in the coziness of a Bed & Breakfast ensconced in an ancient farmhouse

With each of the major tourist areas within an hour’s drive of each other, and each offering truly rural settings anchored by a major – and historical – metropolitan area, Connecticut is the place to go!

CONNECTICUT – NORTH EAST AREA

- Heritage Valley The Heritage Valley of Connecticut is where it all began for this state. The first town was incorporated here and there are nine other towns in the area representing traditions from manufacturing to farming communities, college towns and businesses. You are also poised to make quick visits to Boston, Providence, Newport and New York. The towns are full of quaint shops, historical sites, great restaurants and wonderful old inns.

- Quiet Corner If you’ve ever seen a postcard from Connecticut or an ad symbolizing small-town New England life, you already know what “Quiet Corner” is all about. Small towns popping up between working farms, cattle grazing by the river. There is a bounty of dining experiences here from upscale, country inn dining in the quaint town of Woodstock to roadside diners as you approach the Massachusetts border.

- Hartford Metro Area The capital city of Connecticut is the perfect place to base your stay in the Nutmeg State. A major metropolitan area, Hartford has everything a big city can offer – museums, nightlife, fine dining, great shopping. And its location offers you quick, easy access to everything else the state has to offer: the country, the beaches, New York city, a quiet New England village, casino gambling and entertainment or a concert on the village green. As the insurance capital of the world, Hartford itself is a sophisticated city which has undergone a great revival and offers world class entertainment, art and cultural attractions as well as a multitude of opportunities for the more intellectually minded. For the confirmed city dweller who would like a taste of what New England life has to offer without giving up the comforts and convenience of the big city, Hartford is the ideal place to center your stay in the Nutmeg State.
