Spend your day at the nature center or pack a lunch for the beach; there's much to do at this perfect family-friendly retreat from the heat.

An All Season Hiking Getaway

Summers in Connecticut bustle with vacationers hitting the beach and lining up at ice cream parlors but in the fall and winter, Hammonasset State Park still has its welcome mat out on the doorstep. Boasting the longest shoreline park in Connecticut, there is a variety of places to walk by beach or on land.

    Join an early morning nature walk on the Moraine Trail. Catch a glimpse of the seals playing on the rocks while taking in the views of the Long Island Sound. Afterwards, head back to the nature center to make new animal friends with the interactive touch-tank.

  • 3. Take a Stroll Down the Boardwalk

    Stay close to the water on this charming ¾ mile walk down the beach. You can take a break to sunbathe or build a sandcastle if you want. Parts of this trail, which provides picturesque views of the ocean, are wheelchair accessible.
