Discover Connecticut, the "Constitution State"

Connecticut may be the USA's 3rd-smallest state, but it doesn't scrimp on charm. Known as New York's affluent neighbor, it's dotted with "old money" mansions and New England estates. It's also home to some of America's most captivating cities. You can rub shoulders with students in New Haven, visit Mark Twain's house in Hartford and museum hop your way around Bridgeport. Hit the coast and you'll find a string of beaches and seaside towns. Not to mention the enchanting Mystic Seaport. Wherever you're heading, Connecticut vacation rentals promise a unique stay in the "Constitution State".

Step back in time in Connecticut's Mystic River

Connecticut is known for its impossibly picturesque towns, made famous by Ira Levin's "The Stepford Wives". With elegant mansions and beautifully manicured gardens, places like Greenwich and Litchfield Hills showcase the state's affluent New England roots. Seafarers will swoon over Mystic Seaport, a fairy-tale harbor perched on the Mystic River. It's known for its fully-rigged clipper ships, sumptuous seafood and recreated New England whaling village. The atmospheric harbor is a favorite with families, so why not pack your bags and escape to Connecticut vacation rentals in the heart of Mystic Seaport?

Dive into Connecticut's Ivy League student scene

Home to Yale University, New Haven is the beating heart of Connecticut's student scene. Whether you're attending a graduation ceremony, or have come to check out the Ivy League campus, Connecticut vacation rentals put you just steps from Yale. While you're there why not check out university museums like the Yale Center for British Art and the Peabody Museum of Natural History? As the nation's oldest public art gallery, the Wadsworth Atheneum boasts more than 50,000 works. The collection is housed in a grand Gothic Revival building in downtown Hartford, and showcases Impressionist paintings, New England antiques, surrealist sculptures and more.

Leaf peeping in Connecticut

Most visitors arrive in the summer, when Connecticut enjoys long days and warm weather. It's a great time to beach hop along the coast and explore the state's cities. In fall, north-west Connecticut lures legions of leaf peepers. The state is famous for its fiery foliage, with reds, yellows and golds usually peaking around Columbus Day. Winter brings snow to Connecticut, and while temperatures do drop, fewer crowds make it a great time to explore the state's cities and museums.

Get wild on Connecticut's Appalachian Trail

With a footprint of over 5,500 square miles, Connecticut is the USA's 3rd-smallest state. It sits in southern New England and is made up of coastal cities, rural towns and plenty of rolling countryside. Venture inland and you'll find a patchwork of forested parks and nature reserves. Thanks to an abundance of beeches, hickories, maples and oaks, Connecticut puts on one of America's most spectacular fall foliage displays. Hikers will jump at the chance to explore parts of the Appalachian Trail, which passes through north-west Connecticut.
