My friends and I are planning a road trip from Virginia, where we live, to Connecticut. We want to stop in New Haven, Washington Depot, Hartford, etc. I've done a lot of research on the state and the areas that we want to check out, but I want an insider’s point-of-view. What are the best places in these areas to visit? Are people genuinely friendly? What’s the best way to commute? And what are the most reasonable places to eat and sleep?
We are taking this trip not only for fun, but to get a general idea of life there. We are all three highly considering a move to Connecticut. Any advice is appreciated.
