The borough of Stonington has quaint shops and restaurants right on the water. Traveling through the village you will enjoy the historic homes and lighthouse.  Mystic has wonderful shops, food, and ice cream for the kids. Wander through the streets of Noank and watch all the sail boats go by. Groton Long Point has been a family vacation spot for years with deep sense of community.  Just over the line in Rhode Island is Watch Hill with shop, a carousel and one of the most beautiful beaches I have every been to.

Groton Long Point is a popular summer destination by families as a summer playground. It is a friendly town where kids riding bikes all day and families enjoying the summer night breeze on front porches. If you are lucky you can catch a summer music jam party on a neighbors porch.

 The Groton Long Point Yacht Club has many classes for kids including swimming, sailing, sports, and tennis lessons.  I have enjoyed sailing with friends, playing music on beach and spectacular fireworks. The Yacht Club also organizes evening events such as dances, movies, and scavenger hunts for children. The homes and gardens Noank are beautiful. Take a bike ride, enjoy the sights. Don’t miss the concerts at nearby Esker Point. I love to end the day with a lobster roll at Abbott’s and watch the boats go by!
