Just ten minutes from the Mystic drawbridge lies Stonington Borough, called "the most beautiful seaside village in New England." Because the Borough is a narrow, mile-long peninsula pointing into Fisher's Island Sound and Little Narragansett Bay, nothing is more than a short walk from your car or boat.
From "The Point" you can view three states - Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York - or see the last remaining commercial fleet in the state bring lobster and famous scallops to the town dock. The Borough is a major yachting center with all the amenities and a beautiful harbor boasts boats of all types and sizes.
History comes alive at the charming Old Lighthouse Museum, where the view from the tower is breathtaking. The Borough's fabulous architecture is a living museum, ranging from lovingly preserved Colonial and Federal homes with award-winning gardens to the new firehouse (Philip Johnson's last design).
Refreshed by sea breezes, the tree-line sidewalks lead to quiet waterfront viewing. Home to wonderful restaurants, sophisticated bistros, popular coffee and sandwich shops, and many unique stores, boutiques and galleries.Less
