A real must see is Topsmead State Forest, Litchfield (Connecticut) in the spring and summer

Buttonwood Farm Ice Cream in Griswold has fantastic ice cream and hayrides through the fields of Sunflowers (AMAZING)

The Mark Twain House & Museum  in Hartford was worth the trip

Mystic! See the Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Aquarium in the off season if you can. Check out Latitude 41 Restaurant for dinner at the seaport!

Great answer, Erik! Been meaning to visit since Mystic Pizza! By the way, I'm a community manager here and I've helped you highlight the places in your answer on a map! In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer :)

Definitely check out the town of Mystic, Connecticut. It's on the southern coast of Connecticut, facing the Long Island Sound. Mystic is home to the Mystic Seaport, the largest maritime museum in the US, and the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration (for marine life research and rehabilitation). There are many restaurants to check out, including Mystic Pizza, made famous by the 1988 movie "Mystic Pizza". From there, several coastal towns of the state of Rhode Island are only a 20-30 minute drive away, also worth seeing.

Great suggestions, Chris. I've always wanted to go to Mystic to try Mystic Pizza! Good to know that there's so much else to do in the city. By the way, I'm a community manager here and I've helped you highlight the places in your answer on a map! In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer! :)
