Back In The Day, This Connecticut Town Was A Mafia Mecca

When you think of the Mafia, Connecticut probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind. Nowadays, we have very low rates of both property crimes and violent crimes — we’re typically listed among the safest states in the country, in fact! But believe it or not, half a century ago, New Haven, Connecticut, was a haven for the New England branches of the Mafia.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
