Eco-Friendly Traveling

Eco-Friendly Traveling in Connecticut

Some people say a travel experience should make an impact on the traveler, not the place. In other words, if you are looking for travel that lets you make the most of your visit, without taking a toll on the environment, consider Connecticut. You can even arrive by public transportation and leave your car at home. Then, once you’re here, you can stay in an environmentally conscious hotel, go on eco-friendly adventures and more.

Rent a Boat in Connecticut

Rent a Boat to See the Best of Connecticut

One of Connecticut’s greatest attractions is its long-standing love affair with the water — from its history as one of the country’s first maritime ports to today’s shoreline and riverside marinas filled with fishing boats and pleasure craft. Even if you don’t have a yacht (or a dinghy) of your own, there are many places you can rent, hire or charter a boat to explore some of the best sights (and most amazing views) on the water.

Take a Class - Sailing

Go Off the Beaten Path in These Connecticut Villages

Go Off the Beaten Path in These Connecticut Villages

Some of Connecticut’s smaller, less well-known towns have been described as “sleepy” or “undiscovered gems.” But the people who live there, and the people who visit, know differently. These towns might be overshadowed by a larger town or city, or maybe they are not easily reached by the interstate, but they have a personality that makes visiting them worth going “off the beaten path” for. And at a time when we are all trying to keep a safe distance from one another, discovering some of the state's lesser-known destinations is a great way to do so.
