Plenty of things are different about Connecticut, and this list aims to highlight some of them. Whenever outsiders roll in, it seems you have to spend a lot of time explaining the state’s traditions or disproving common assumptions. But that’s okay! It comes with the territory, and we’re happy to fill in any gaps. How many of these things have you had to explain before?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
