The Breathtaking Overlook In Connecticut That Lets You See For Miles And Miles

While Connecticut may be small, we are big on views. Many have hiked to the collection of towers sprinkled throughout the state to take in panoramic scenery that stretches on for miles. But there is one vista that is often overlooked. Take the short trek up to Lion’s head and you will be rewarded with a roaringly expansive view.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
