The 10 Coolest Attractions in Connecticut That Not Enough People Visit

Connecticut has many popular tourist attractions such as the beautiful Mystic Seaport or Lake Compounce which is the oldest amusement park in the world. However, there are a few less known places that are just as cool to visit. From going to a museum that features thousands of puppets to walking under life-sized dinosaur statues, there are quite a few unique places to visit in our small state. Here is a list of what we think are the hidden gems that not enough people visit.

Please note, Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry is temporarily closed.
