Historic Stonington is a quaint little town located midway between New York and Boston, just a short journey from Mystic. It’s been voted one of the top 10 prettiest coastal towns in New England and it certainly lives up to this reputation with beautiful views across the bay, along with colonial, Federal, and Greek Revival buildings.
Along Water St visitors can enjoy boutiques, interesting shops, art galleries, and cute places to eat. Dedicate some time to strolling around the town and discovering museums like the Captain Nathaniel B Palmer House, the Old Lighthouse Museum, and the James Merril House. It's also worth dropping into the Velvet Mill where a vibrant community of artists and small start-ups have their workspaces, as well as an artisanal baker, brewery, and farmers' market.
Elsewhere, DuBois Beach is a beautiful spot with anchored jetties and a dock, a gazebo and wonderful views across Fishers Island Sound and Stonington Harbor. Pick a walking trail in town and wander along the harbor or settle down in one of the open spaces for a picnic or to relax with a book in the shade. Close to the town there are vineyards, farms, and nature preserves to explore.
