The One Park In Connecticut Where You Can Explore The Remnants Of Connecticut’s Canal System

Before the days of cars, buses, and trains, transportation occurred on waterways. And if there wasn’t a substantial river available, canals were built between commercial ports and inland settlements. In Connecticut, there is one relic of our canal history that has been preserved. Lock 12 Historical Park gives us a glimpse into a time long forgotten.

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
