Things to Do in Connecticut

Connecticut is a world-class destination in New England boasting a wide array of tourism activities and scenic landscapes. Connecticut offers four seasons of fun — from summer days hanging on the shoreline and fall afternoons exploring foliage in the nation's #1 hiking state, to high-energy winter sports and spring flower festivals. Whether you visit for a week, stay long-term, or make it your base for exploring New England, Connecticut packs a lot to love into its compact size. In fact, you can easily travel from coastline to countryside in just a couple of hours. There's so much to see and do — and it's all so close together. 
From culinary must-tries like the nation's #1 pizza and sustainable accommodations in the state with the #1 lowest impact on climate change, expect to experience top-notch finds around every corner — whether you want something active or relaxing, artsy or outdoorsy, historic or trendy.
While each season in Connecticut has its own unique appeal, there's plenty to do all year round as well! Here is our guide to exploring the state at all times of year, both seasonally and year-round.
