Whether you need a quick relaxing break or an exciting adventure-filled weekend, you'll find just the right getaway waiting for you in Connecticut.

Explore Connecticut in a Weekend

Connecticut is the southernmost New England state, which means that some of its regions are very New York in nature. However, the farther you wander into Connecticut, the more charming and inviting it becomes. This state is filled with quaint historical towns, pretty seaports, numerous wineries as well as lovely inns and resorts that are perfect for CT weekend getaways.  Are you more of an adrenaline junkie than an antique hunter? No worries. You'll find plenty of exhilarating and exciting activities to do in Connecticut, including whitewater rafting, ziplining, wakeboarding and skiing.
