Connecticut, the ‘Constitution State’, is an educational place to visit with many things to see and do. This Connecticut Field Trip Guide will help narrow down the many choices and find activities that interest everyone.
As a Navy Brat, I spent much of my childhood in the state of Connecticut. Two of my dad’s duty stations in his 23-year Naval career were spent at the Groton Submarine Base.
It was our first duty station as a Navy family. We moved from Texas to Connecticut when I was 6 years old.
The field trip that I remember the most from my years in Connecticut was the Updown Sawmill in Ledyard.
We would visit the sawmill to see it working, have picnics there and even birthday parties too.
Creating this field trip guide for Connecticut was a lot of fun because I knew many places that I would include without having to do any research.
I’ve tried to include something for everyone in this field trip guide. Options include museums, national parks, historical places, gardens and much more.
