About The Area

Connecticut may be overlooked in favor of its larger, flashier neighbors - Boston and NYC - but this state has its own unique charm and history that's worth exploring.

The state capital Hartford exudes its own beauty with engaging local history such as the Old State House, one of the oldest capitol buildings in the U.S., and the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, home to the American author who wrote the influential novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin." Check out the Connecticut Science Center for hands-on activities on everything from geology to physics.

Learn about the amazing historic ships at Mystic Seaport, or discover the creatures under the sea with Mystic Aquarium. Indulge in a trip to Foxwoods Resort and Casino for cards, slots, spas, gourmet dining, and a luxury hotel stay. Other Connecticut attractions include Yale University, the PEZ Visitor Center, and Mohegan Sun.
