Summertime is coming quicker than you imagine and now there is a must-go-to seashore in Connecticut that designed Vacation + Leisure’s “Finest Shorelines in the U.S.” checklist.

The record named 25 shorelines all around the country, and Ocean Seashore Park in New London came in at selection 24. “This half-mile, golden-sand beach with mild tides supplies good views of ferries and schooners sailing past the New London lighthouse,” the write-up describes.

In accordance to Travel + Leisure, the perfect seashore demands excellent sand, waves, degree of seclusion, public transportation, parking, a boardwalk, activities and shaded trees. Ocean Seashore Park features a picnic location, playground, snack bar, an arcade, mini golfing and is found along the boardwalk. 

It may perhaps be the only Connecticut seaside on this record, but it is definitely not the only 1 in the condition. Hammonasset Seashore Point out Park in Madison opens up in May well while Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven has been open given that April for the time. And down in Fairfield County, Westport and Fairfield are just two cities that boast many beaches.

Nearby seashores also built the list: Coney Island Beach front in Brooklyn New York, Asbury Park Seaside in New Jersey Rockaway Beach front in Queens New York and Excellent Harbor Beach front in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
