Connecticut Holidays

Classic colonial villages

This is New England at its finest, full of charm and timeless rural beauty.

Connecticut lies just east of New York, sat on America’s wild Atlantic coast. A holiday here will inspire you to slow down, sip a glass of wine and stay a while as you soak up the peaceful, quaint surroundings. In between wining and dining, visit one of Connecticut’s picturesque farms, historic villages, stunning vineyards and antique shopping scenes, or take a hot air balloon ride over the state for a birds eye view.

Experience Connecticut’s vibrant maritime heritage – from whaling and shipbuilding museums to quaint coastal towns along the shoreline - such as the historical Mystic Seaport. Or sample the state’s luxury spas, world-class beaches, lush vineyards and incredible outdoor adventures in the state parks.

Why stop there? Swap Connecticut’s laidback vibe for the bright lights of New York, or visit Washington DC for iconic architecture and landmark sights.
