USA, Connecticut – The Most Beautiful of Towns

Published: 1.11.2019
Connecticut is the third smallest state in the game. Today, we look forward to some of the nicest small towns in Connecticut to plan your vacation holiday more at your fingertips.

First we head to the somewhat sleepy town of Colebrook, which has a rural charm, is home to approximately a thousand residents and can be found about an hour's drive northwest of Hartford.

About half an hour from Colebrook you can reach the pretty New England town of Cornwall. You will find one of the three covered bridges in this state. The Hart Bridge Bridge connects the banks of the Housatonic River. The bridge on the site of the present probably stood as early as the 1860s, but the original building was destroyed and the current 52 meters long and less than 5 meters wide bridge was built in 1864.

Essex is the next town we chose for you is Essex. If you are one of those who watch Gilmore's Girls popular series, then Essex will be very familiar to you, because this charming city was the model of the Stars Hollow series. Essex is surrounded by typical New England farms whose roots date back to the era of the War of Independence.


You will certainly appreciate the popular attraction of Essex Steam Train, a classic steam train where you can take a ride to several nearby towns. In addition, in November and December it is worth mentioning a ride to the North Pole. Accompanied by hot chocolate, cookies, singing and Christmas songs, you will experience a ride to the imaginary home of Santa Claus, where you can even take a gift.

Greenwich   Bruce Museum

We will make another short stop in Greenwich, an important financial center and a grateful stop on your travels through Connecticut. Founded around 1640, Greenwich is one of the oldest in the country. It is less than an hour's drive from New York City. You will certainly eat well because the restaurants are among the best. You can also expect boutiques and shops with world-famous brands. More noteworthy is nature, especially Audubon Center. Also, don't miss out when you go to the Bruce Museum. This focuses on art, science and natural sciences. Every year there are twelve exhibitions. It is also worth mentioning the Flinn Gallery exhibiting art in various forms and from different historical periods. It is not very busy, so you can enjoy the local space.
