The Connecticut shoreline extends from posh, exclusive Greenwich just beyond New York City in the west to charming, historic Stonington on the Rhode Island state line in the east. Connecticut hotels are found in nearly every city in this quaint New England coastal state. With charming towns that reflect the history of the state to the bigger cities like New Haven, Danbury and Hartford each place still keeps true to the tradition and heritage of the state. Visit the classic city of Mystic and marvel at the ships anchored in Mystic Seaport. Spend a day at Mystic Aquarium and see the baloogo whales and enjoy a sea lion show. Then retreat to the downtown area and enjoy a classic piece of pizza and an ice cream cone as you sit by the water and take in the beautiful view.
Stay at one of the hotels in Connecticut that are near Danbury and spend a day on Candlewood Lake enjoying all the water sports you can imagine. Golf in some of the most prestigious golf courses in New England located in Norwalk, Greenwich and Southington. Enjoy walking on the beach in Fairfield or Milford and eat at some classic New England seafood and steakhouses. There are some hotels in Connecticut near the beach but they are also conveniently located to the major highways like 84 and I95 to allow easy access to all the other attractions throughout the state.
One of the great things about this state is that it is small enough you can spend one day touring the capital building in Hartford, another in Mystic enjoying the seaport and still have time to travel to the southern part of the state for amazing shopping in Westport.
Another fun Connecticut adventure is to take the ferry from Fairfield across the Long Island sound to Port Jefferson, NY. This tiny island is full of shops, candy stores and cobblestone streets to stroll through. When you return from your ferry you can unwind in your Connecticut hotel room and rest up before enjoying any of the fine restaurants in the state, including some of the best Italian food you can imagine. When flying into Connecticut there are several options. Hartford International Airport is one and another is to fly into White Plains Airport just over the border in New York. It is a smaller airport and is just thirty minutes from Danbury. Whether its strolling Fairfield beach, shopping in Westport or touring the capital building, Connecticut hotels provide the charm and ambiance that travelers desire when staying overnight in any New England state.
