There are 100 miles of coastline along the shores of Connecticut, and they all converge at Stonington Point, located at the end of Water Street in historic Stonington Borough. Standing and soaking in the sea air and views, you can look out and see both Rhode Island and New York from the tip of the mile-long peninsula. The point is open to the public for free and does have some parking. It is owned and maintained by the borough and is a popular stop year-round. Founded in 1649, it is just a few miles north of downtown Mystic.
A quick stroll down and around the small streets that embrace the harbor reveals an amazing collection of historical and waterfront homes, each with their own distinctive charm. Flowers and colors abound, on doors, shutters and siding. It is easy to fall in love with everything this coastal community has to offer.
If time allows, walk into town to enjoy the eclectic shops, art galleries, boutiques and restaurants that make up their Main Street. And if you are lucky enough to spend the night, the @innatstonington is a gorgeous b+b with rooms and views to remember.
Come take a walk with us down this scenic street…
