Sandwiched between Massachusetts to the north, Rhode Island to the east, Long Island to the south and New York State to the west, this original American colony in New England is sometimes overlooked as a travel destination because of its reputation as a bedroom community for Manhattan. But there is much to recommend this diverse and charming northeastern state, which contains a wealth of history and geographical diversity within its 5,500 square miles. 

Yale University and its renowned art museum are ensconced in New Haven. The Connecticut River cuts its way through the center of the state, through greater Hartford and up to the Canadian border. Along the way stand charming colonial villages and old mill towns converted into artsy enclaves. In the southeast, the coast is dotted with towns that still retain the flavor of their seafaring roots. In Mystic, for example, the Seaport museum features tall ships and a recreated 19th-century maritime village. And Old World solitude permeates the horse-farm hills of the northwest.
