Connecticut is open and welcoming to visitors from around the world. International flights from Europe, UK, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean arrive and depart daily from Bradley International Airport — one of the area's most highly rated airports. 

Distinctive Experiences

Unique attractions abound in Connecticut — including Yale University, the Glass House, Mystic Seaport Museum, the Mark Twain House & Museum and the Mashantucket Pequot Museum, just to name a few.

You'll also find an exhilarating array of active adventures here in Connecticut — like hiking the Appalachian Trail, biking through spectacular fall foliage, kayaking along the coastline, zip lining in the tree tops or driving a racetrack in a Lamborghini.

This is also a great place to savor nature's bounties like a local, whether you're visiting a vineyard or a brewery, picking-your-own at our abundant fruit farms, or savoring lobster and other seafood fresh from our coastal waters.

So if you're looking for a truly authentic New England experience, look no farther than Connecticut.
