The Surprising Connecticut Town That Makes An Excellent Weekend Getaway

Oftentimes, when tourists picture a weekend getaway in Connecticut, their mind goes to our many lovely beach towns. After all, who doesn’t love a beautiful weekend in Essex or Madison? But to focus on cities solely along the shore means you’re missing out on so many other great trips in Connecticut. One spot that we love is tucked away in the idyllic northern portion of the Nutmeg State. It’s a quiet town, with a population of less than 5,000, but the area’s scenic beauty can’t beat, and there are lots of great restaurants and shops to check out as well.
