While most people think of Salem as a place to visit around Halloween, it's a great place to visit in the spring!


A popular town to visit in Southeastern Connecticut is Mystic. It has a great downtown loaded with great places to grab a bite. It's not just great for delicious food though, it's also quite beautiful.

Litchfield County

There are various beautiful waterfalls in Connecticut. The most notable is Kent Falls in the northwestern part of the state. This giant waterfall really is quite the sight to see.

Bar Harbor

If you're going to make the trip, be sure to visit Acadia National Park! Acadia National Park falls into the top ten list of most visited parks in the United States, so you know it will be worth it.


When I'm in Kittery, I love bird watching on the shoreline and viewing the lighthouse. My favorite park to go to the enjoy the shoreline is Fort Foster.


Take some time to walk the piers and see the lobster fishing boats during the day off of Commercial Street!

Block  Island

There's more to Block Island than the beaches. There are lighthouses, great hikes, a farm where you can feed animals, plenty of trails for bike rides, and a great downtown with shopping.

Watch Hill

While you're in Watch Hill, also be sure to check out the beautiful beaches. You can go to Napatree Point to get beautiful views of the ocean from the top of the dunes


Portsmouth has such a cute downtown area filled with shops and restaurants. If you're into beer, there's even a brewery!
