We’re well-known for our charming small towns in Connecticut – we have countless examples of the quintessential old New England town, you know the kind, with adorable Main Streets and local shops galore. One of our favorites is Deep River, which is named for an offshoot of the nearby Connecticut River. The mighty waterway is not only the longest river in New England, measuring 410 miles, but also pretty deep (131 feet at its deepest point). The town of Deep River is in Middlesex County and has a population of around 5,000. It’s not quite as well-known as nearby Essex, but it’s a lovely spot and definitely worthy of a day trip!
