You might enjoy Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun Casino in Ct.. Maybe an hour out of the way is Newport, RI which is very nice.

Have a nice trip.

Hi travelus73

they both look great, another option i didnt think about is a Casino resort. I do fancy Newport ive heard many good things, but i think it may be a bit out of the way and would have to hire a car which i didnt fancy.

Thanks again.

Hi Chris;

This forum is NOT the Boston Massachusetts forum, which is what I believe you were aiming for. That forum is;

Best Regards

Are you definitely taking the train? Then some of the suggestions people have made won't work. The Amtrak train goes along a fixed path, and really not to Newport or to the big casino mentioned. I just took this train a couple weeks ago, and it does go by some very beautiful territory in both Connecticut and Rhode Island. Let's see -- I'm just throwing out some random ideas but you'd need to check them out. Don't stop In New Haven -- it's urban and not what you are asking for. Same with Bridgeport. But Westport, Old Saybrook and some other small stops in Connecticut might be nice. The Old Saybrook area is really lovely and has nice coastline. I can't remember if the train stops in Mystic and am not sure if this is near "Old Mystic" Connecticut, but I hear that area is really lovely, and includes maritime museums (Old Mystic Seaport?) and things to do. The Rhode Island stop south of Providence (perhaps it is Westerly?) might also be nice, although I am not so familiar with this area. Hope that is a good start.

Rescue Team --

You have me baffled. This IS the Boston,Massachusetts Forum and the link you posted goes directly here.

Chris --

As far as I can tell, you are definitely in the right place, Although it is neither coast nor country, the train does stop in Providence (1 hour outside of Boston), which has undergone an amazing Renaissance. There are fabulous restaurants (especially on Federal Hill) and on certain summer nights they have an event called Waterfire along the river. Westerly RI is a nice resort area adjacent to Watch Hill (very upscale). You have also received some excellent recommendations for places to stop in Connecticut.
