Dating back to the 1630s-1640s, our communities share their rich history with visitors at our historic homes, farms and museums. Experience what life was like in colonial America. View Native American artifacts. Visit the still working quarry where granite for the base of the Statue of Liberty was honed. Enjoy the local wineries on the CT wine trail or a pub-crawl for beer tastings at our three microbreweries. Take a scenic boat ride around the Thimble Islands or stop into our local art galleries. Hop on a Segway to tour the historic district or climb aboard a vintage trolley for a ride on the oldest continuing running suburban trolley line in the USA. There is something for everyone!

    This quintessential New England community offers four seasons of fun. Enjoy our beaches, boating, biking and hiking trails. Or bring binoculars for bird watching.
