Two CT cities make Travel + Leisure’s list of best weekend getaways

Two Connecticut cities made Travel + Leisure’s “20 Best Weekend Getaways in New England” list. The article, published Nov. 27, names everywhere from North Conway, NH, to North Adams, Mass., places that deserve a “quick escape from the city or a romantic trip.”

Travel + Leisure recommends starting a weekend in Mystic with a visit to the Mystic Seaport Museum to browse its collection of “more than a million artifacts depicting the city’s nautical life” and take the opportunity to board the Charles W. Morgan, the last remaining wooden whaling ship to leave. The article also lists some gastronomic options that unsurprisingly include fresh seafood.
