Wheeling City Tours, LLC, a short walk from the ferry and train, explores New London's streets at the speed of Segway. As groups zoom through the city donning hands-free radios worn around necks, the knowledgable guides narrate facts about the town, tales from its history, and tips on some of the best spots to grab a bite or visit. During their one-hour tour, the guides lead groups through downtown to peep Waterfront Park and Fort Trumbull, puttering along the Thames River and Long Island Sound for breath-taking views. Their two-hour excursion follows a similar route, but also introduces riders to views of scenic marinas, beaches, the New London Harbor Light lighthouse, and the Pequot Colony neighborhood, ending in a visit to Ocean Beach Park and a glide down the boardwalk. To commemorate the journey, guides snap photos throughout and forward them along to tour-goers.
And those who haven't ever ridden a Segway need not fear. Before setting out on a tour, the guides lead a thorough training in Segway maneuvering and safety, and promise that each Segway is gentle and has been properly broken.
The friendly folks at Dad's Restaurant think of each other as family?and that kind of attitude shapes every diner's experience. A welcoming bright-red exterior beckons visitors inside, where the cooks prepare locally beloved breakfasts of fluffy belgian waffles topped with fruit and cool whipped cream, as well as custom three-egg omelets plated alongside home fries and toast. Dad's is also open for midday and afternoon meals of rib-eye sandwiches and stacked triple-decker clubs.
Since setting up shop in 1881, The Day Publishing Company has earned a reputation for journalistic integrity, amassing numerous awards and remaining one of the few publishers to operate as a public trust. The company produces the printed and online editions of The Day, a daily periodical dedicated to the happenings of southeastern Connecticut. Sports and entertainment sections track local and national figures, and the business section compiles up-to-the-minute commerce headlines alongside stock quotes. Each issue also includes such newspaper mainstays as coupons, job postings, and real-estate listings, and weekly features crop up in the paper's Sunday edition, which doubles as a projectile with which to threaten demonically possessed paperboys from the next town over.
The staffers at The Fresh Cow don't mind adding a bit of whimsy to their customers' days. By their own admission, they "don't take life too seriously," and they encourage crazy combinations of yogurt and toppings. They do keep it simple when it comes to the yogurt, though. They offer just 15 flavors, each made with healthy and natural ingredients such as real milk, honey, and fresh fruit. Customers spoon this low-fat treat into their mouths within a clean, inviting shop bedecked with bright blue chairs and blond-colored wood tables.
