There's so much to see and do in the valley of New England's most scenic river and along the spectacular shoreline. Sightseers get a river's eye view of Gillette Castle. The Connecticut River was first charted by Dutch explorer Adriaen Block in 1614.

From its delta at Long Island Sound, upstream through the valley, the river provides magnificent unspoiled vistas of wooded hills and picturesque villages. Beyond its banks lie historic towns, lakes and streams, high hills with rugged outcroppings, rolling farmlands, scenic country roads and cool, deep woods. Colonial history, a variety of attractions, outdoor activities, antiquing, sightseeing, lodging, restaurants and entertainment abound for visitors of all ages year-round.
