I believe one of the most charming towns in Connecticut is Stonington, on the Connecticut coast near the Rhode Island border. Stonington, Connecticut, is a classic New England seaside community with a beautiful, picturesque harbor, interesting little shops, narrow streets, wonderful restaurants and a solitude that makes you feel like your miles away from everything. Take a walk to the Stonington Harbor Lighthouse at the end of the point and watch the boats go by. While you are in Stonington Village, try Water Street Cafe, Noah’s or Dog Watch, a few of my favorite restaurants. If you are there on a Saturday don’t miss the extensive farmers market! The farmers market runs Saturday 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, June to October at the Stonington Borough Town Dock, Front St at High St. Please note that The Stonington Farmer’s Market moves indoors for the winter, Saturdays, 10am – 1pm at the Velvet Mill, 22 Bayview Avenue. Stroll through the Market and the Mill art studios any time of year, it’s a lot of fun.
Relax and enjoy a bit of New England charm in Stonington, you will be glad you did.
Remember…Connecticut is a great place to call home!
