What to see & do

Connecticut is a wonderful area to visit as the sharp contrast between the rural areas and small towns in the northeast and northwest and the industrial cities on the coastal highways are interestingly notable. Many towns in the state centre around a green space, like the Litchfield Green, Lebanon Green (the largest in Connecticut), and Wethersfield Green (the oldest in Connecticut). Near these green spaces are New England historical structures such as a white church, a colonial meeting house, a colonial tavern, and colonial houses. Among the top tourist spots within Connecticut include the botanical gardens, forts, lighthouses, sports areas, and zoos. Other points of interest in Connecticut are the areas maintained by the National Park Service including the Appalachian Scenic Trail, Quinebag and Shetucket Rivers Valley National Heritage Corridor, and Weir Farm National Historic Site. The state also features amusement parks, aquariums or seaports, and beaches, as well as bicycle spots since cycling is popular in Connecticut.
