Connecticut: A Maritime Journey

Filed under: Uncategorized — karenhammond @ 9:48 pm

The first chapter of Backroads & Byways of New England covers a beautiful section of southern New England with a long seafaring history. In this chapter you’ll read about pretty seaside towns like the Borough of Stonington and better-known places like Mystic, home to the Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration. Or perhaps you’d prefer a hike through the Pequotsepos Nature Center with its eight  miles of walking trails. You’ll also learn about scrimshaw and the story behind Mystic Pizza, plus lots of other things to see and do in this pretty corner of New England.

Backroads & Byways of New England is now on sale through Amazon and your local bookstore and makes a great gift for the New England traveler (active or armchair!) in your life. As several readers have pointed out, Father’s Day is coming soon, and if your Dad loves to drive, loves history, or just enjoys good food in beautiful settings, this book makes the perfect gift.

Next we’ll talk about another interesting section of beautiful Connecticut.
