Logo   New London & Groton CT Guide
New London means the sea, specifically the US Coast Guard Academy, and the Navy submarine base at Groton, across the river.



Visitors to these navy towns are usually here to see the US Coast Guard Academy, or the Navy submarine base at Groton.

But there are other things to see and do as well.

New London has a state park and a beachfront amusement park, as well as car-ferry services to Block Island RI, Fishers Island NY, and Orient Point, Long Island NY. Groton has Fort Griswold State Park.

The big draw in this region is, of course, Mystic Seaport. Many visitors choose to stay near Mystic, and tour New London and Groton on a day trip.

There are some lodging possibilities, however, in New London, Groton, and the nearby towns of Niantic and East Lyme, to the west.

Lodging establishments in this area consist almost exclusively of highway motels. Many are geared to the tourist trade rather than to the business or armed forces traveler.
