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 a day or even a weekend.
