Exploring Mystic, Stonington, and more of Connecticut’s southeast coast
21 Mar 2022
During the thick of the pandemic in 2020 and 2021, I developed a habit to satiate my pent-up wanderlust. Every time I felt a pang to hit the road, I went to my computer instead, and “traveled” via online street views, looking longingly at every place from Yellowstone to Key West.
Here in New England, it’s the southeast coast of Connecticut, a regional gem I’ve always loved, that has beckoned me most. And with the arrival of spring, I’m itching to make the trip. With its laid-back seaside feel, foodie opportunities, and attractions for all ages, it’s ideal for reacquainting oneself with the joys of travel, all within a two-hour drive from Boston.
