Famous Food

A first class burger is what you will find at Ted's Restaurant in Meriden. This eatery was featured on TV in the show “Man v. Food” for its famous steamed cheeseburger. Steaming burgers and a few other foods was invented in Meriden in the early 1900s, and restaurants here take their steaming seriously. If you are looking for Mexican food, feast on something from Cucaramacara Mexican Eatery. The name is a mouthful, and so are the crunchy fish tacos, some of the best in the northeast. Do not neglect dessert. Head to Les’ Dairy Bar for a creamy smooth soft serve ice cream.

Historical Buildings

If you are curious about how life was in the 1700s in Connecticut, make a trip to Solomon Goffe House. The oldest remaining house in the city, it is a historical museum that reflects how life was in the 18th century. Everything is faithfully reproduced or a relic of the time, including the checkerboard and corncob checkers. If seeing a castle is on your wish list, Castle Craig rests in the Hanging Hills and is more than a century old. Climb to the top, and you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Long Island Sound and the top of Mount Tom in neighboring Massachusetts.

Explore the Outdoors

Hubbard Park is home to Castle Craig, along with the shimmering beauty of Mirror Lake. More than 1,800 acres of woodlands and flower gardens are here for you to explore and enjoy. Veteran hikers may want to tackle the Metacomet Trail, which is 51 miles from East Peak to West Peak. The park is also home to the annual Daffodil Festival. Another great place outdoors to explore is the Meriden Linear Trail. It is a 1.3-mile rail trail that winds along the Quinnipiac River Gorge and ends near the city line. It is a popular walking spot with residents and visitors.
