These Are the Places YOU Love In Connecticut


In a matter of a few short hours, this is the list that came up when I asked you on Facebook what your favorite “gem” spots are in Connecticut, what a list! If this doesn’t keep you busy in the car, I don’t know what will. Because I love vintage, the photo is that of the old Hotel Taft Lobby in New Haven, quite something I would say.

Just click on all of these places and you will go right to a web site…Network Connecticut folks did all the work for you to help you save time, that’s how we roll, we like to be helpful. We want you to dig deep into this rich and historic state and find new things to see and do.
