Located on the Southeastern coast of the state of Connecticut, New London is a vibrant, exciting town with a rich maritime history. With its close historical, industrial and cultural connection to the Long Island Sound it borders, it is no surprise that New London is also home to the United States Coast Guard Academy. Whether you find yourself in New London on business, visiting friends or family, or even attending the Coast Guard Academy, there is plenty to do on the weekends in this small but dynamic town.
New London is steeped in the rich American history of New England’s days as a maritime superpower. You can get a better sense of this history when you visit Hempstead Houses, a collection of historic mansions that date all the way back to 1678, when New London was one of the first colonies settled in New England. You can even shop for your own piece of New England history to bring home at the famous New London Antiques Center, one of the foremost antiques marketplaces in the area. And to complete the picture of New London’s unique history, don’t forget to visit Yah-Ta-Hey, a Native American art gallery and gift shop.
Plenty has happened in New London since Colonial days. You can visit the Monte Cristo Cottage, home of the playwright Eugene O’Neill and the setting for several of his plays. And for an activity that combines an appreciation of the past with a good time in the present, visit the Garde Arts Center, once a prominent vaudeville stage and now a center for a wide variety of live arts performances. Complete those doses of high culture with an afternoon spent wandering the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, home to a fine collection of New England art, and then finish off the evening at Brie and Bleu, a fine cheese and wine emporium.
When the weather is good, there is no better thing to do in New London than to get out and enjoy the crisp ocean air near the waterfront. You can spend a relaxed afternoon picnicking and relaxing at the Connecticut College Arboretum, or, for a more exciting time, visit Ocean Beach Park. In addition to beach access and a sizable outdoor pool, the park offers mini-golf, arcades, rides for children, and a variety of concession stands. After a day of fun, you can end the night on a high note by checking out El N Gee, a club and music venue that dates back to heyday of punk music.
From sleepy historic village to modern beach resort, New London has a something to offer for everyone.
