Museum
$$$
“The volunteer docents have many stories about the former residents (American Impressionist painters) and the former owner (Florence Griswold). I take all of my visitors to visit the museum, and I always hear new stories. There is also a contemporary gallery behind the historic home, with changing exhibits. There's also a great gift shop. The location, right on the Connecticut River, is beautiful. Relax, sit on the lawn, and watch the river run by.”

Bed & Breakfast
“A short drive to Niantic leads to a long white sand beach and boardwalk, with hiking trails and bath houses. The parking lot hits full capacity early on hot summer days, so plan ahead or go for a later afternoon visit when the crowds have headed home.”
