A pet friendly vacation to Connecticut is the perfect blend of culture, history, and New England charm. Located between New York City and Boston, you'll find relaxation around the corner from exhilaration, and down-to-earth sensibility just steps away from sophisticated style. From kayaking on Long Island Sound to touring the covered bridges of the Litchfield Hills, whatever you desire is within reach in Connecticut.
Best Time To Visit
The most popular time of the year to take a pet friendly trip to Connecticut is the fall, when the leaves turn and put on a spectacular show. Winter brings snow and cold, and while spring can be lovely, it's often fleeting. Like much of the East Coast, Connecticut's summers are generally warm and humid--an ideal time to head to the beach.
