Stonington, CT

A quaint coastal village hidden away in Southeast Connecticut.

Photo of Stonington, CT Stonington, Connecticut may not be well known, but this coastal village in the southeastern part of the state is about as quaint a village as you will find on the New England coast. Set in a pristine location on a narrow peninsula, Stonington is a fog-shrouded hamlet with a laid-back air, little traffic, and cool ocean breezes that drift down Stonington's charming main street even on the hottest summer days.

Photo of Stonington, CT While many of Stonington's attractions are connected to the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, the surrounding region has top wineries, placid rivers, huge casinos, and a number of historic towns and villages. In addition, the town of Mystic, a busy tourist center, is just a few minutes away. For many, though, there is no reason to stray beyond Stonington, which, while within shouting distance of bustling Mystic, is truly a world away.
