You can lose yourself in the maritime charm of Connecticut’s Mystic Seaport, where Bogart and Bacall spent their honeymoon, or lose your spare change further inland at one of the Foxwood Resort Casino’s 6,393 slot and video poker machines. Country road trips through Connecticut will guide you past covered bridges and fiery New England foliage in the autumn. After stopping at Silverman’s Farm in Easton to pick your own apples you can spend some quality time with their resident buffalo, llamas, sheep, goats, fallow deer, emus, long-horn cattle, and exotic birds. The Amistad Memorial in New Haven compels you to ponder the courage of African slaves who were put on trial here, and the Freedom Schooner Amistad invites visitors to tour a reconstructed replica of the vessel that brought them here. Artistic souls can make a pilgrimage to Weir Farm National Historic Site, where the lush landscape has inspired artists to prop up their easels for over 120 years. Medical historians will enjoy a trip to the Dr. William Beaumont House in Lebanon. Home of the “father of gastric physiology,” the museum contains medical antiques and memorabilia dating back to the 1800s.
