This One Beautiful Connecticut Lake Has A Beach That Rivals The Coast

With Memorial Day right around the corner, you’re probably making a list and checking it twice of all the places we want to visit once summer is in full force. While Connecticut has plenty of sandy shoreline along the Long Island Sound, you don’t always have to head to the coast for a fantastic beach day. Martin Park Beach is a spring-fed freshwater swimming spot with refreshing water and a sandy beach perfect for swimming, splashing, and lounging.

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!
