When warm weather arrives in Connecticut, many of us cannot wait to get outside and enjoy it! A beautiful day is an invitation for motorcyclists to take the bike out and explore what our state has to offer. This time of year, we love riding to the following scenic destinations.
Sun Valley Beach Club
Sun Valley Beach Club is a family-owned and operated private campground in Stafford Springs. The lake covers 10 acres of peaceful land, including 300 seasonal camping spots. Four Seasons By the Lake at Sun Valley, formerly known as Clubhouse Café, is the new on-site restaurant to enjoy a meal overlooking the water.
The Cornwall Bridge
If you’ve never visited Connecticut’s Appalachian Trail, you are missing out on some truly breathtaking views! To get there, the West Cornwall Covered Bridge is must-stop along your route. This wooden truss bridge over the Housatonic River is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, which would be a great weekend adventure.
This single-lane wooden covered bridge is a historic landmark in South Kent. As one of the only three surviving covered bridges in the state, Bull’s Bridge is a must-see. While crossing 109 feet over the Housatonic River near the Connecticut – New York border, stop to admire the reinforced trusswork and surrounding waterfalls.
We love to ride along Connecticut’s Gold Coast and Greenwich is the largest town on this route. There is plenty to do, from shopping to museums and nature walks. Greenwich also has several historical landmarks that would be fun to ride to in warm weather.
Stonington Harbor Light
The Stonington Harbor Light has stood for nearly 200 years and is a historical landmark in our state. Visitors to the Old Lighthouse Museum can look to Rhode Island from the top, including Watch Hill and Napatree Point. After your visit, take a one-minute trip down the road to the secluded and picturesque duBois Beach in Stonington.
