Submarine Capital of

With a nickname like, “Submarine Capital of the World,” Groton is not kidding around when it comes to the building and maintenance of subs for the United States Navy. In fact, they are the only sub museum managed exclusively by the U.S. government, which gives them the bonus of having some very special and unique exhibits on display such as the USS Nautilus, the very first nuclear sub. Explore the self-guided tour, bring the kids for an adventure, and learn about the history of submarines in marine combat, from the early days all the way up to modern-day warfare.

Fort Griswold State P

Every place needs a little green space, and Groton is no exception. Being so close to the water and having a lot of historical background and museums is one thing, but when you want to get out and really enjoy the beauty of nature and the lovely summer weather, there is no better place to do it than Fort Griswold State Park. Formerly an American military base, it has since been converted into a monument park that includes old war equipment as well as a massive granite obelisk in dedication to United States soldiers. Take a stroll through and learn a thing or two.

Mystic Adventures

If you are looking for a little weekend playtime adventure nearby, the best place to get all of your sun-filled activities and water sports in one day is the Mystic Seaport.

It makes for a great day with the family or some friends if you are looking to explore the waterfront area, and have some food and entertainment to boot.
