Best Christmas Towns in Connecticut

November 22, 2021

Where is the best place to spend Christmas in Connecticut?  

Connecticut is pretty lucky, when you think about it. We’ve got all the Christmas joy here that anyone would ever need; it seems like every single town and city loves to go all-out with holiday joy. There are a few towns, however, that are just a little bit (and in some cases, a lot) fuller of holiday cheer, and you’ll see them pop up in “best of” lists fairly often. For example, the town of Milford loves decking its town green in thousands of lights, and the shopping there is fabulous. Hartford is absolutely breathtaking when covered in lights, and in Thomaston, you can even hitch a ride on a Christmas express train. In Greenwich, you can find a delightful reindeer festival that lasts an entire month! For more ideas and inspiration, take a look at this article. We have no doubt you’ll fall in love with this beautiful state via its contagious holiday spirit! Connecticut is a wonderful state to call home during the holiday season. Whether you live here or are just visiting, you’re going to love this place. 

What is Connecticut at Christmas like?  

Connecticut is a verifiable Christmas paradise. Year after year, plentiful snow and cold (sometimes frigid) temperatures make for the ideal, picture-perfect Christmas season, especially considering just how many cities, towns, and neighborhoods love going all-out with the décor and the cheer. It may be cold, but hearts are warm; it seems like everyone is just a little kinder during this magical season. The spirit of Christmas is everywhere in this beautiful state. Christmases here are such a delight that we’ve even had movies centered around it, like the appropriately-named Christmas in Connecticut. No matter where you turn, you’re sure to find the glow of happy hearts and grateful friends.
