Day Trips

Summer road trips are upon us!

Over the summer, the weather is fresh and you’ll (hopefully) have more free time. Here are some day trips you can take this summer to see some beautiful sights.

Enders Falls

If you’re looking for beautiful scenery, look no further than Enders Falls. The waterfall even has a thirty-foot tall waterslide if you love thrills.

Ocean Beach State Park

Drive down the coast and spend a day in New London to enjoy Ocean Beach. At this beach, there’s not only a great waterfront, but also waterslides, a splash pad, a pool, and carnival-type rides.

Becky Thatcher Riverboat

Take some time to enjoy the lovely Connecticut riverfront. This riverboat goes out of Deep River Landing in Essex and you’ll be able to listen to music and even some local history.

Book Barn

Love books? You’re in luck. The Book Barn in Niantic is a mile-long bookstore that takes you through nearly every genre and every subject you could ever hope to find.

Saltana Cave

Ever been to a Himalayan Salt cave? You can go to one in Ridgefield! Salt caves can be incredibly therapeutic and very relaxing.

And remember, if you need a car to take on these adventures, just come down to Vail Buick GMC!
