Something special happened in Connecticut during the early 20th century: artists began flocking to Miss Florence Griswold?s boardinghouse, creating an epicenter of American impressionism in the village of Old Lyme. Today, visitors to the Florence Griswold Museum can explore the same house and grounds, learning about Connecticut's crucial role in American art while dreaming up masterpieces of their own.

  • Size: an 11-acre museum campus with indoor art galleries, gardens, walking trails, and historic buildings
  • Crown Jewel: A National Landmark, the Florence Griswold House once served as a boarding house to more than 200 American artists, some of whom left paintings on the house itself
  • The Art: exhibitions of American art from the 18th to the 20th centuries, featured inside the Krieble Gallery
  • Eye Catcher: a landscape historian and several volunteers have recreated Miss Florence's old-fashioned garden, which was the subject of many paintings
  • Hands-On Activities: guests can pick up "Can You Find Me?" cards to search for key paintings, as well as a scavenger hunt list of objects to look for inside the Florence Griswold House
  • Don't Miss: Stroll along the river until you reach Anticipator, a sculpture that combines three steel limbs and a recycled tree trunk
  • Pro Tips: well-behaved dogs are allowed outside, and artists can bring along their tools to paint the scenery
  • Special Programs: art lectures, crafting events, seasonal festivals, and signature Make-a-Painting Sunday events

The Connecticut River spans 410 miles from the border of Canada to Long Island Sound. Inside the Connecticut River Museum, visitors can span that space through exhibits that tell the stories of the river and the people who have lived along it. Aerial photographs and a large mural depict the evolution of the river communities through time, and the On the Great River exhibit showcases the early history of the river through artifacts and works of art. A reproduction of David Bushnell?s Turtle allows visitors to get up close to the submarine, turn the propeller, and pump the ballast intake. A huge mural, cannonballs, and ship fragments recall the night in April 1814 when British forces traveled upriver and burned the privateer fleet in Essex. The river played a key role in the development of towns and cities in New England, providing everything as transportation routes to waterpower.

Along with long term and special exhibits, the museum offers educational programs for adults and children as well as seasonal boat cruises up the River. Cruises travel along the lower river valley, labeled one of America?s last great places by the Nature Conservancy.

Shoreline Fitness's certified trainers hold tight to their philosophy of leading a life in balance. They lead patrons toward this goal by targeting their core tenets of health and fitness—stability, movement, strength, and nourishment. Both of Shoreline Fitness's clubs welcome guests to their more than 15,000-square-foot training studios, which are packed with cardio machines and strength-training equipment to assist them on their journeys to overall fitness.

Throughout the week, instructors lead more than 150 fitness classes on the hardwood floors of their numerous training studios, and NASM-certified personal trainers meet with clients individually, drafting custom workout sessions to suit their specific fitness goals. As their parents burn calories, youngsters can burn excess energy in the onsite Kids Club. In the clean, secure playroom, a childcare staff leads wee ones in hands-on activities and enlightening discourse on the fleeting impermanence of reality.

Stay and Play was designed specifically so that kids could use their outdoor voices indoors. The indoor playground encourages hoots and hollers with twisting slides, climbing walls, and a rope bridge?all built with kids 6 and under in mind. There's even an area just for babies, with soft play surfaces they can pound to let out their frustrations at not being able to talk. Meanwhile, kids 7?12 escape to the game room, where they engage in games of foosball and air hockey. Parents can keep a watchful eye on their brood from any of the cozy couches scattered throughout the open-plan facility. The snack bar's menu has options for all ages, from healthy snacks for kids to fair-trade coffee for grownups.

The US Coast Guard–licensed captains with Peconic Water Sports tow customers through the water using all of the 400 horses inside their Malibu Wakeboats' Indmar engines. Before launching from the dock in Greenport Harbor, they wield their coaching experience to train each participant in the techniques necessary to ride their selection of Liquid Force wakeboards, Connelly Marine water skis, tubes, and kneeboards. These captain-coach hybrids emphasize safety as much as technique, and each is annually certified in CPR and First Aid. Captains also conduct seasonal fishing charters through the bay or open sea, as well as sightseeing cruises along Eastern Long Island.
