New London Vacation Packages

Walk in the footsteps of America’s founders in the historic downtown of this waterfront city. Outdoor and cultural activities make this a popular destination.

New London is a historic city along the U.S. Atlantic coastline. As one of the first English settlements in Connecticut, the destination was once one of the world’s busiest whaling ports. Its small-town charm and long history are balanced by cultural attractions that add a modern touch to this notable New England destination.

Reflect on the past in the downtown waterfront area, the crown jewel of New London. Enjoy its many shops and restaurants or stroll along the banks of the Thames River. Historic figures like Revolutionary War hero Nathan Hale and playwright Eugene O’Neill once lived here. The cathedral, which houses a stunning collection of Tiffany glass windows, is just a short walk from one of America’s oldest operating courthouses.

The waterfront is lined with historic streets of quaint architecture and captivating cultural activities. Explore galleries and shops. Select one of the district's many eateries. New London's Atlantic Ocean location makes it an ideal destination to enjoy fresh seafood dishes.

Find plenty to do outdoors in New London. Visit the Waterfront Park, a promenade and piers along the Thames River. Casual boaters can dock here. For a day at the beach, head a few minutes south of downtown to Ocean Park Beach. Meander along the boardwalk or swim in the Olympic-sized pool. Treat your family to miniature golf, the arcade, playground and fair rides, such as the carousel and water slide.

New London is also home to Connecticut College, a small liberal arts school with a charming campus. Stroll through the Connecticut College Arboretum, a sprawling site with botanical gardens and a native plant collection. The college also offers dramatic and dance performances throughout the year.

Drive 47 miles (76.5 kilometers) northeast to Hartford, Connecticut's capital. The Amtrak station provides easy access between the two cities.

New London provides New England charm throughout the year. Enjoy colorful fall foliage or spring flowers as you stroll down the historic streets.
