Mystic Seaport - Step back in time at this living history museum that lets you experience life in a 19th-century New England coastal village. At Mystic Seaport you can explore old-fashioned sailing ships -- and even take a ride on one! See the craftspeople working in the rigging loft, the tavern, printing office, or nautical instruments shop. You can tour the stunning gallery, then see the lighthouse that's a replica of the lighthouse in Nantucket. Learn about the various crafts and products that kept vessels afloat in the 1800s, then stop off for succulent pub meal or a quick spot of gift shopping. You'll even find authentic 19th-century snacks for sale like ice cream, cookies, and hand-made pickles.

Foxwoods Casino - With its entertaining live shows, slot machines, excellent restaurants, and video poker, Foxwoods Casino is the place to come for nightlife in Southeastern Connecticut. This stunning facility is home to more than 7,000 slot and video poker machines, plus regular sporting events, rock-and-roll shows, comedy headliners, and more. Start your visit early with a trip to the golf course or spa, then hit the nightclubs for dancing until dawn. Foxwoods has more than thirty-five restaurants to choose from, making this an ideal place to go for dinner or lunch. Plan an excursion to enjoy their Sunday Champagne Brunch or the special Scotch and Cigar Dinner!

Mystic Aquarium - From beluga whales and penguins to sea lions and cownose rays, the Mystic Aquarium has something to beguile every visitor. Put your hands in the touch-tank to see how these curious creatures feel, then head to the Amazon exhibit for lizards, iguanas, and poison-dart frogs. You can see the only beluga whales in New England before you head off to learn about the tragic history of the Titanic. Wrap up your visit by watching the sea lions perform tasks for their trainers, demonstrating how charming and swift these 500-pound creatures can be. Make note of the feeding times when you arrive to see the most exciting action.

Thomas Lee House - Tour this fascinating wood-frame house that was built in East Lyme in 1660. The Thomas Lee House is the oldest such home in Connecticut that's still maintained in its primitive state. This stunning relic includes features such as a parlor, a 17th-century Judgment Hall, and a lean-to kitchen with an 18th-century lintel stone across the top of the fireplace. With its oak staircase, entry hall, and carved pine balusters, this home would have been a showplace in its time. Tour the grounds, the school house, the cellar, buttery, and attic, then learn about the archaeological study being conducted right on the site.
