Summer has just begun, which could only mean one thing, there are numerous exciting events to enjoy and places to be visited over the horizon. Our Connecticut limo service specialist has compiled a list of some of the most amazing getaway locations in the Constitution State.

Consider employing our Connecticut car service for all your summer adventures this year; leave all the driving and navigation to someone else this summer and just focus on having the time of your life, creating memories, and making this the best summer yet at any one of these top Connecticut getaway locations.

 

Essex Steam Train and Riverboat

Head over to Railroad Avenue in Essex for an epic train and boat ride adventure. This is a 2.5-hour ride that begins at the historic Essex Station of 1892. The narrated train ride is a 12-mile tour that passes right through the heart of the untainted Connecticut River Valley. The steam train cuts through towns such as Chester and Deep River. However, the beautiful Selden Neck State Park can only be accessed by boat.

Do not miss the riverboat experience either; head on down to the Deep River Landing where passengers are directed towards the Becky Thatcher Riverboat for a ¾ hour cruise along the Connecticut River. Multiple decks give you a perfect view of the river and its surroundings. Upon your return from the river, the steam train will be waiting, ready to transfer you back to Essex Station. Now, doesn’t sound like an adventure?

 

Stonington Borough

There are numerous activities you can engage in Stonington including climbing lighthouses, enjoying a vibrant restaurant scene, and exploring world-class shopping centers. However, the water has to be the greatest treasure Stonington has. Being a town located in a peninsula, there are endless, scenic waterfront views wherever you stand. There is also a perpetual cool breeze in the air that is especially inviting during the summer time. You will also love the DuBois toddler beach where kids splash away in the shallow waters and make fellow tiny friends. Last but not least, Stonington Burrow has some of the most amazing sunsets you have ever seen; the sunsets are beautiful when you watch them by the waterfront.

 

Argia Mystic Cruises

Head over to Mystic, Connecticut this summer and explore New England’s coast on a beautiful sailing ship. Hop aboard the 81-foot schooner ARGIA, a coastguard inspected vessel that also happens to be one of the few remaining sailing ships in New England. Summer cruises began in March and will only come to an end in Mid-October, so there is still plenty of time to plan your visit. Pass right through the Mystic Ridge Drawbridge, which opens for the vessel every day, and enjoy views of historic lighthouses and surrounding islands. The ARGIA serves guests with complimentary snacks and beverages but you are also free to bring your own picnic basket. You can either choose between a day cruise, which will give you better views, or you can choose a relaxing cruise under the starry night.
