Affordable Connecticut Travel Ideas

Share this New England story on

The Hartford Courant recently featured a terrific article entitled, “25+ Free Things to Do in Connecticut.” We highly recommend reading this article!

Some attractions mentioned include the Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven, Connecticut State Capitol Tours in Hartford, the Husky Heritage Sports Museum at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, the New Britain Youth Museum in New Britain. Some offbeat Connecticut travel attractions are mentioned, too, including the Connecticut Trash Museum in Hartford — 6,500 sq. ft. feet of educational exhibits beginning with the Temple of Trash and the chance to learn about  source reduction, recycling, trash-to-energy and landfills.

We think you’ll find something of interest for everyone in the article, en route to some affordable travel ideas this summer and beyond in Connecticut!
