Connecticut ideas: where to start from

Hello All,

My family and I (4 adults total) are planning on driving to Connecticut for 4-5 days. Would appreciate suggestions as to where is the best place in Connecticut to start off & best places to visit. We're driving from busy NYC and appreciate more of the nature type activities: scenic sights, hiking, canoeing/rafting, quaint charming towns, mom/pop type food, etc.

Ive been reading that certain other places (Newport, Block Island, and anything else you can suggest) are close by. Are these places close enough for day trips or is it more of overnight stays?

Any ideas/suggestions would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you everyone in advance for all of your help:)

I would center yourself somewhere in the Mystic / New London area - from there, it's an easy ride to Newport, Block Island Ferry, the casinos, beaches, etc....
