Full of charm, history, picturesque views and the kind of quintessential American town atmosphere that Hollywood loves, Old Saybrook is a delightful Connecticut coastal town, and it's also one of the oldest.
Classic buildings and houses adorn the waterfront downtown, so feel free to stroll the streets and get the vintage vibe with old signs depicting the Saybrook Hardware Co., Old Colony Package Store and others. Discover boutique clothes and shoes, antiques and gifts in several one-of-a-kind shops.Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy running, fishing and kayaking along the wilderness area of the Connecticut River or wander the boats in the harbor and enjoy the sea views from the beaches or walk towards the Lynde Point Lighthouse for atmospheric photos at sunset. There's plenty of great places to eat seafood and enjoy craft beers here with wonderful coastal views.
Summer brings crowds enjoying the beach and boating opportunities, fall can be spectacular with that lovely New England fall atmosphere as the trees change color and people are still enjoying the hours of golden daylight.
