The Best Views In Connecticut

 

What better way to take in all the beautiful views of Connecticut than with a luxurious limo ride across the state. Our professional limo service inĀ  Connecticut allows you to sit back, relax and leave it to the experts to provide you with hours of beautiful scenery. There is no need to worry if you are just flying into town, we can also be your airport shuttle in CT.

The state of Connecticut only measures 70 miles from the northern-most tip to the south and 110 miles across, which makes it easy to plan an entire day of the best views while leaving the driving to one of our friendly and knowledgeable chauffeurs. Many of the scenic overlooks involve hiking trails, which requires proper planning, comfortable clothing and footwear. The hiking trails provide spectacular views of the state's countryside, especially during the fall months when the colors are changing.

Some of the best views in Connecticut include, but are not limited to the following:

 

West River

The banks of the West River can provide a peaceful backdrop to sit and ponder or to partake in activities, such as fishing or crabbing, which are both popular in this waterway. The surrounding scenery can be taken in from many locations; however, two of the best spots to enjoy all the river has to offer are West River Memorial Park and Edgewood Park. Onlookers might even spot the Yale University rowing team getting in their afternoon training.

 

Heublein Tower

A short 1.25 mile hike up to the peak of Talcott Mountain will bring you to the historic Heublein Tower. The structure, which stands 165 feet tall, was built in 1914 and originally used as a summer home. The stunning 360 degree view allows those willing to hoof the trail to see all of New England's countryside. During the fall months, this view takes stunning to a whole new level.

 

Sleeping Giant State Park

One of our luxurious limo rides can take you up to this state park to view the landscape of the Long Island Sound and New Haven. To get the best views, hiking the 1.5 mile scenic trail is a must. The trail leads to a stone observation tower which sits on the peak of Mount Carmel. The stone structure can be seen for miles in the Connecticut skyline.

 

Wadsworth Falls State Park

Waterfalls are always a glorious thing to see. This state park boasts 30 foot waterfalls if seekers are willing to make the 1.25 mile trek along a well-maintained trail. After all the hiking, park-goers can enjoy a picnic at one of the many grills provided by the park. If the time of the year is right, you can even take in some swimming at the life-guarded beach.

There are so many more breathtaking views to see in Connecticut, including a plethora of state parks, hiking trails, and historic landmarks. All of these sites are just a safe and comfortable ride away in one of our limos driven by the most competent and experienced chauffeur
