The Connecticut Shoreline offers an incredible array of romantic inns, hidden vineyards, historic museums and other inviting destinations. Travelers will experience pockets of coastal villages, quaint shopping boutiques and galleries along the I-95 corridor from Greenwich, known as Connecticut’s Gold Coast, to Mystic Seaport, home to the largest Maritime Museum in the world. The shoreline is roughly 40-50 minutes by train from Grand Central Station. If you are interested in breweries, stop by Stony Creek Brewery, a spot that will wow you. The Connecticut shoreline appeals to all senses from adventurous bike trails to paddle boarding and even a cruise around the Thimble Islands. Head north to Mystic, famous for Mystic Pizza, “[t]he pizza that made the movie famous,” and take a stroll down picturesque Main Street. For the best lobster, visit Abbott’s in the Town of Noank, just 2½ miles west of Mystic.
