This small rural community is nestled along the eastern banks of the Connecticut River in the southeast corner of the state. Lyme is a short drive away from the shores of Long Island Sound where you can enjoy swimming, boating, seaside dining and boutique shopping. Within the town, there are several state parks that offer outdoor recreation as well as a marine. Here you can spend the day stand up paddle boarding, kayaking or boating. Lyme residents enjoy the unspoiled beauty associated with an earlier time in New England including the scenic Hamburg Cove and the federally designated Wild and Scenic Eight Mile River. We have a longstanding policy of sharing our good fortune with our neighbors. Our parks and preserves with their miles of trails and passive recreation opportunities are open to all. We encourage their use and enjoyment by good stewards of the land.
