Niantic Travel Guide

Niantic is located in Connecticut and is west of New London on the coast of the Atlantic. Niantic, Connecticut is mainly known for being a quaint town on the Long Island Sound and for the bay that shares its name.

Things to Do in Niantic

Whether you are looking for excitement, recreation, shopping or you just want to relax, there is always going to be something for everyone in your group when visiting Niantic. You are definitely going to want to check out the Niantic Bay Boardwalk, it’s a must see and a great opportunity for everyone in your group to get outside and embrace the city's seaside location. Sunbathing and swimming at Hole-in-the-Wall Beach is a great option or you could go clamming with the locals. This charming city has many other activities to choose from including, the Children's Museum of Southeastern Connecticut. It is very engaging and fun for the whole family.

Best Places to Stay in Niantic

As with most locations like Niantic, we recommend staying near to the sea, as views are better and activities more abundant. Unforunately staying near the water comes with the higher price tag, so those who are looking for a more budget friendly option should look a bit further inland.

Best Time to Visit Niantic

The best time of year to visit Niantic is during the summer months. While Niantic does have things to offer all year, summer does allow for visitors to really embrace the beachside location.

Food in Niantic

There are some mouthwatering spots for foodies to sample when visiting Niantic. Skipper's is known for having some of the best seafood food in the area, which is saying something. If you love pub food and that kind of vibe, then you’re going to want also to check out The Black Sheep. The number of locals should be a good indicator for how good this spot is.
