Connecticut is broken up into five major areas: Fairfield County, Greater New Haven, Litchfield Hills, Mystic Country and River Valley. Each, however, offers more than the standard travel fair. Visit the Mark Twain House and Museum in River Valley, and see where Samuel Clemens penned his famous books. History and art buffs can also tour other historic sites like the Keeler Tavern Museum in Litchfield Hills, the William Benton Museum of Art in Mystic Country or the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in Greater New Haven.
Travel to the many vineyards and wineries throughout the state and partake in some sumptuous spirits. Or, if you’d rather gamble the night away, head to Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mystic Country and play one of the many slot machines and table games. If you prefer strolling through the outdoors, head to heady Kent Falls State Park in Litchfield Hills and feel the crisp splashes of the Falls as you stroll along the stair pathway. Families can wonder at the power and ferocity of dinosaurs at Dinosaur State Park in River Valley, which showcases dinosaur tracks dating back 200 million years.
