Connecticut has many fascinating faces.
Come visit… and discover all the ways you can CONNECTICUT!

Connecticut is all about… fun! In just about every form you can imagine. Thrilling roller coaster fun. Antiquing and ethnic festival fun. Serious museum and opera fun. Shop-til-you-drop fun. And just good plain, old-fashioned fun.

Which means you and your family and friends can stroll across a historic New England village green, dine at an enchanting country French restaurant and roll the dice at the worlds largest casino… then hike beside cascading waterfalls or attend an art gallery opening.

To make it even more interesting, your choices change with the seasons: from lobster rolls and fried clams to award-winning pizza; from summer along the shore to autumn in the blazing hills; from concerts under the stars to Broadway musicals.

This makes us the perfect vacation destination, because we appeal to every age and interest.

Whats the best part about this wonderful state of ours? Everything lies within an easy drive of an hour or so! So you can see and do everything youd like on the same weekend. Or return again and again to experience another of Connecticuts endless intriguing treasures.
