For a small river town, Essex is well worth a visit on your travels through the Constitution State. There’s plenty of charm, so much so that it has been dubbed “The Perfect Small American Town” in the “1,000 Places To See Before You Die” travel guide.
Tree-lined streets and village lanes lead to the scenic banks of the Connecticut River and Essex Harbor, both great for boating. Visitors will enjoy the blend of antique shops, specialty boutiques, inns, restaurants, marinas and attractions such as the historic Griswold Inn, the Connecticut River Museum, the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat, and the Ivoryton Playhouse.
Looking for a day trip? Explore nearby East Haddam, where Gillette Castle sits on the hills overlooking the Connecticut River. Or head to Madison, considered one of the state’s best beach towns.
