We were in NY last Aug and couldn't stay away so we will be here again in Aug! Giving up another beach vacation for concrete! That's how much we like NY.
This time we thought we'd explore further than Manhattan (we have 24 days) and I noticed we can take the Metro-North Railroad from Grand Central to places in Connecticut easily. The idea of going to a different state is, of course, intriguing. We get to say we were in Connecticut too. Y'know, get the t-shirt. :-) I was thinking of Greenwich, Wesport or Southport. Don't know anything about these places, just that I might've heard of their names. Does anyone know which one of these places might offer the most "fun" for walking around, little trendy or quaint shops, parks, activities, etc? Dare I say, more touristy? Does anyone know what I mean? Any other good possibilities in Connecticut?
