Take a day trip.
If you’re unable to go away for the weekend, why not head away for the day? And, with major cities like Boston and New York only a train ride away, it’s definitely a great way to enjoy the three day weekend. Or, if you’re interested in a trip to Port Jefferson, it is only a ferry ride away.
However, if you’re interested in taking a trip and staying in the state, have no fear. Connecticut is home to two great water parks — Quassy and Lake Compounce. Not an amusement park kind of person? Why don’t you take a trip to our two casinos — Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun — which have something for everyone. Or, if you’re interested in just hanging out by the water, why don’t you take a cruise to the Thimble Islands in Branford. The sky is truly the limit here.
