Now’s the time to secure your rental property so you won’t miss out on a summer vacation at the Connecticut shore! Imagine relaxing days swimming and sunbathing, taking walks along the beach searching for seashells, planning outdoor gatherings by the barbecue and discovering your favorite ice cream spot. For families, Connecticut offers several shoreline communities that are ideal for fun in the sun and lazy days at the beach.
Stay in Mystic for a memorable, quintessential summer getaway! It's renowned for its tall ships, maritime history and scrumptious seafood. You’ll get all the charm of a historic Connecticut coastline town along with water views of Mystic River and a vibrant Main Street with its famous drawbridge, boutiques, restaurants and popular ice cream shops.
In this shoreline town, you’ll find a combination of art, culture and beach communities along Long Island Sound. Your family day at the beach awaits – the town’s public Sound View Beach is a great location for swimming, sunbathing and building sand castles. Walk to the Carousel Shop for gifts, ice cream or frozen yogurt as the kids enjoy a ride on the carousel.
With its beaches, parks, active main street and restaurant offerings, Old Saybrook is a popular destination for summer visitors. In addition to all of the great year-round mainstays, such as “The Kate” (Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center), in summer, you can find a farmers market, concerts on the green, and movies on the beach.
Located on Long Island Sound, Clinton offers relaxation and fun on the sea and land. With a summer rental, you could be moments away from Clinton’s town beach, the sand, sun and water! Spend an afternoon fishing for striped bass, bluefish and tuna with Bluefin Sportfishing Charters.
Madison is home to Connecticut’s largest beach, Hammonasset Beach State Park, where you can set up umbrellas and chairs and gaze at the water for hours! Or let your cares drift away as you walk along more than two miles of beach. Don’t miss the Fourth of July Parade, Fourth of July Concert on the Green and outdoor Farmers Market (May - October).
You’ll get a sense of small-town charm in the scenic shoreline town of Guilford. On your way to the town’s center, you’ll pass through an historic district of homes. Get coffee at Cilantro Café for your leisurely walk on the expansive Town Green, surrounded by shops, eateries and galleries.
