I am wishing all the best of health to all while encouraging you to follow guidelines set forth by Government in hopes of decreasing the prevalence of Coronavirus.
We are all in a place of uncertainty and anxiety about the future. However, we need to take care of ourselves and make the best of a difficult situation.

Westbrook is centrally located on the Connecticut Shoreline off of I95 making many of Connecticut's attractions within a short drive. It is home to beautiful beaches, great dining, Waters Edge Resort and Spa, Outlet shopping and Movie Theater. The Westbrook Train Station has free parking and is a pleasant way to visit other local shoreline towns. Also, you can take it to New Haven and catch the Metro North Train easily across the platform to New York City. Amtrak comes into the Old Saybrook train station which is only about 10min from here.
Whether your laying low and staying local, up for some site seeing or a little of both, Chapman Beach is a great location to start from!!! Hope to meet you soon!

May I recommend planning a day trip where you take the train to a town or New Haven. Our family has done this and it is fun and different. Guilford downtown and New Haven are the most accessible via walking. For those who love old time architecture, great shops and many unique restaurant, New Haven has it all!!!!
Love visiting here to get my city fix.
Not to big, not to small!! ✌️
