When you live in Connecticut, summer and seafood shacks go hand in hand. A day at one of the many state beaches can come to the perfect end with a stop for a hot, buttered, Connecticut style lobster roll, a fried seafood platter and an ice cream cone. Here are a handful of my favorite Connecticut seafood shacks.

New England seafood is famous worldwide. And there's no better place to enjoy it on a hot summer day than by stopping at one of Connecticut's many seashore clam shacks. All along the shoreline, you'll find local spots that offer the freshest in seafood favorites. From buttery lobster rolls (we invented them!) to fried shrimp, freshly caught oysters and creamy clam chowder, these classic seafood shacks in Connecticut are worth a visit.

If Connecticut ever had to name an Official State Food, it would probably be a close call between pizza and lobster. Of course, lobster has been on the menu here a lot longer, dating back to the days before the European settlers arrived. And today it’s available everywhere, served in all sorts of ways and always hard to say no to. Here’s a quick look at some of the best purveyors.

As we all know, summer doesn’t officially end until September 22, which means there’s still time to do some of the things you never got around to before Labor Day. And what’s not to love about the September version of summer in Connecticut? The crowds are down, the weather and water are both still warm, prices are sometimes reduced…heck, it might be the nicest summer month of all.
