Must See's in Connecticut

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Last week, Shawn moved to Connecticut. Since then I have been busy, busy planning a vacation to Connecticut for myself. Not that I have any idea when I can go, but I'm planning anyway.

First up on the Rebecca's Must See In Connecticut is this place:

YALE! I swear, I must have heard the Hallelujah chorus when I started looking up pictures of Yale. It's an architecture lovers dream location. And they have a walking tour!

As I was doing my research, I realized there are tons of things to do in New England. So I decided to make this a themed vacation... You guessed it, an architecture vacation!!

Next up on the must see list is Center Church in Hartford, which has windows made of real Tiffany glass.


A vacation to Connecticut wouldn't be complete without seeing a castle, also known as the Wadsworth Atheneum Art Museum.


Then there's Mark Twain's house.


Here's another castle. This one was the house of the Sherlock Homes author.


The Webb-Deane-Steven's Museum. There are over 300 historical homes in Hartford, 50 of them were built being the American Revolution. National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Connecticut, operates four 18Th century houses, three of which are National Historic Landmarks.


I'm very excited about the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion, also known as America's first chateau.


There you have it-Rebecca's Must See in Connecticut list. Now, I just have to figure out when I can go to Connecticut!

  1. I've been wanting to go to New England for forever! The farthest I've made it in the northeast is New York. I'd love to see some of the places that you mentioned in your blog.

  7. Just found your blog, surfing around other military-ish blogs :) Great post, we're stationed IN CT, and I've been dying to check some of these places out. We did see the Twain house, but didn't get to go in.

  8. Um, so I totally missed that your bf actually LIVES in CT too. Small world. Stationed in Groton by chance? That's where we are. Is he a submariner?
