From Greenwich to Stonington, Connecticut’s coastline is dotted with state parks and recreation areas, as well as historic sites in the many cities and towns. For a great weekend adventure, get off the major highways and onto the local roads to enjoy scenic views of Long Island Sound from Sherwood Island State Park (Westport), Silver Sands State Park (Milford), and Hammonasset Beach State Park (Madison). Spend an afternoon kayaking around Thimble Island near New Haven or board a riverboat in Essex for an unforgettable trip on the Connecticut River. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy seafood at local institutions that have been in business for decades. To check some of the popular historic sites off your list, plan on stopping in the charming towns of Guilford, Madison, and Stonington. ...

THE SHIPWRIGHT’S DAUGHTER - Mystic, CT ⚓️


Had a wonderful time at shipwrightsdaughter in Mystic last week! We started off with their mini lobster 🦞 roll appetizers and their clam dip and seasoned old bay chips 🤤 Both of which were delicious!


For entrees, Dean ordered their Ricotta Gnocchi with spring herb hazelnut pesto and and whipped ricotta cheese 🧀


Casey ordered their “Big girl burger” which had a huge tomato slice, dijonaise and chopped bacon served with a bunch of crispy onions! We also had some of their gin and tonics and a banana split sundae for dessert!


We love the area around Mystic and can’t wait to come back again soon! 🥂

I have an obsession with lighthouses 😍 this one was built in 1840. Fun fact: when you climb to the top and look out at the harbor, you can see three different states on a clear day: CT, NY, and RI! ...

2/3: Alone but getting the job done. This one really spoke to me. Sometimes we just need to get the job done without the fan fair. ⁠

Enjoy. ⁠

Favorite town in Maine for views? For me, I’m not sure I can think of one better than Stonington. I’d love to actually go out on the water sometime for a different perspective. Maybe, some day...

Front Door AND Flower Feature Friday. Peep the message in the window-this was commonplace all around this town. Lots of messages of unity and support 🙌🏼 ...

After the pups and I watched the sunrise 🌅 at Sand Beach just down the road, we took a quick walk around Stonington. The morning light was beautiful looking down on the harbor. ☺️ #stonington #stoningtonmaine #deerisle #deerislemaine #coastalmaine #mainecoast #fortheloveofmaine #bestofthepinetreestate #mainetravelcollective #exploremaine #maine_igers #newengland_igers #visitmaine #coastaltown #coastalhome #milliondollarview #mymaine #naturalnewengland #naturalmaine #mainelife #raw_newengland #raw_community_member #mainethewaylifeshouldbe #downeastmaine #downeastmagazine #mynewengland #igersnewengland #igersmaine #lovemaine #coastalviews ...

WHAT ARE YOU MISSING OUT ON? 🤔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you go to Pinterest or google to try and find the best guides for travel, you’re likely missing out on some amazing activities 🚫 This is because your search history dictates what content is suggested to you 🤯 (similar to how liking a post on insta means you’ll see that creators content more) THAT MEANS you’re less likely to get *new* or *creative* suggestions 💭💭
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I faced this when we planned our trip to Mystic, CT & saw DOZENS of articles that all listed the same boring “top 10” things to do 😴 so what did I do? I threw them out. Hit the road. And experienced Mystic like no one else. Then I came home & put together my own dang article on the amazing things to do in Mystic **that you won’t find anywhere else! 👏
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Link is in bio for the article, but more importantly: 📌SAVE📌 & like this post so you make sure you get updates when we post more tips on UNIQUE TRAVEL ✨😎

Lately I’ve become obsessed with this app that drops you into random locations in Google Street View and you “drive” around until you can guess where you are. There are different games with locations worldwide, but I mostly just play the USA one. Why yes, I do miss road trips, why do you ask? But seriously, as much as I long for the days of driving all over the country, I cannot complain about Connecticut’s back roads. There’s really nothing better than coming across places like this😍 #thesizeofconnecticut ...

Went to grab breakfast at Jeff’s fav spot for blueberry pancakes as a youngin’ and saw this cute mural on the side of the diner... i learned it was used in a movie that Meryl Streep & Steve Carell filmed here years ago — anyone seen ‘Hope Springs’?! ...
