From four seasons of outdoor adventure to every kind of family fun, culinary experiences to romantic getaways, you'll find it all in Connecticut. Better yet, since the state is just 110 miles east to west and 70 miles from north to south, you can enjoy everything the state has to offer without spending hours in the car. Living in Connecticut also means you're just a short ride to New York and Boston. But with so much to see and do right here, you may not ever want to leave!
