Summer is officially here and vacation is on everyone's mind—but you don't have to travel across the country or even out of state to have the perfect vacation. Whether you're looking to take a day trip, long weekend or week-long summer vacation, Connecticut has destinations for all ages, families and budgets.
With 169 cities and towns, over 250 miles of scenic coastline, more than 100 craft breweries and wineries, 18 world-class museums, 2,000 miles of hiking and biking paths, and more—residents can spend less time getting to their destination and more time enjoying their time off in Connecticut.
A getaway closer to home can be relaxing, or extremely adventurous, or both, and the glory is that you get to decide! You can stay in your own city or visit one nearby. Regardless, the goal is to get away from your day-to-day life, discover something new and have fun.
