Things To Do in Connecticut

Connecticut is a place of history, scholars, and New England charm. New Haven, home to Yale University, has some of the most fun things to do in Connecticut at night — the Ivy League school is a center for art, culture, and nightlife in the state. The affluent capital city, Hartford, has many historic attractions to explore.

The most beautiful places to visit in Connecticut include West River, Edgewood Park, Silver Sands State Park, Walnut Beach, and Wadsworth Falls State Park. If that’s not enough, visit the largest town on Connecticut’s Gold Coast, Greenwich.

If a big-name act is going to Connecticut, it’ll be hosted at Oakdale Theatre. For something different, visit the Bantama Cinema. It’s used to screen independent and foreign films for its patrons.

Located in the Foxwoods Casino complex, the Tanger Outlet Mall features a big selection of brand-name stores. For a more eclectic selection of items, stop by the Housatonic Trading Company.
