Start your day with a visit to the historic hamlet of Essex for a delicious three-course lunch at the Griswold Inn on the banks of the CT River.
Next, it’s "All Aboard" the Essex Steam Train & Riverboat for a narrated round-trip, just in time to see the colors of fall. Steam through the Connecticut River Valley in a vintage coach car, as the picturesque New England countryside rolls by.
At Deep River Landing, board the Becky Thatcher riverboat with the water below and the summer sky above. Witness Mother Nature on full display and historic sites including Gillette Castle, Goodspeed Opera House, and the Haddam Swing Bridge.
