Connecticut may be tiny, but this New England state can hold its own. “The Constitution State”—known by locals as “The Nutmeg State”—boasts a rich colonial history, stunning geographical diversity and one of the wealthiest zip codes in the United States—largely due to the state’s colonial success in the manufacturing industry.

The Gold Coast lies within the New York Metropolitan Area, but a short drive uncovers quiet farmland and the peaceful rolling countryside of Litchfield Hills. Many rural towns still maintain a central ‘village green’ where historic buildings and landmarks date back to before the Revolutionary War. Large cities like the capital, Hartford, have also retained their historic buildings and heritage while expanding their modern arts and culture scene.

Connecticut has many comedy clubs, dance centers, art communities and even community-based art exhibits; the Art in Public Spaces program has created an outdoor museum, with 360 art installations exhibited across the state’s public buildings, university campuses and public parks.
