This is a series of blogs covering a 21 day road-trip my wife and I made through eight New England States during the month of September – Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
I’ve covered Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Pennsylvania to date.
Chapter 7 - How can anyplace top the town of Intercourse? Well, we were back on the road bright and early heading for Connecticut in search of the next wonderful location.
Our first stop was in the town of New Haven, Connecticut where we toured Yale University. All I can say about this campus is, “Wow!”, It is so worth taking time to walk around and see a place that educates some of our most intelligent young people. I felt smarter just strolling around the grounds.
After walking through the University we took a boat ride with River Quest on the Connecticut River. The weather was okay with just a few scattered clouds and slightly on the cool side. On the cruise was saw the Gillette Castle, Snowy Egrets and some beautiful homes along the waterfront. If you are visiting Connecticut, be sure to take this tour.
After finishing up the boat ride we traveled on to a quaint little town called Mystic, still in Connecticut, where we planned on spending the night. We really got lucky finding a vacancy at the Steamboat Inn (B&B) right on the waterway with a terrific view (and very romantic). While in Mystic, you have to eat at the Mystic Pizza parlor. As they say on their sign it’s like eating, “A slice of heaven”.
All in all, Connecticut was a great state with lots to see and enjoy.

Next blog with cover Rhode Island, then on to Cape Cod.
Hope you enjoy…
