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.

Connecticut has a long-standing reputation for fine dining, as well as a strong farming heritage. Many of the restaurants here have depended upon locally grown foods and products for generations — long before there was a “farm-to-table movement.” Today, we’re proud of the many chefs and culinary professionals who build their innovative menus around sustainable, local ingredients, and we’re honored to have so many of the farmers, fishermen and other producers continue to bring the freshest, finest product to our tables.
