Connecticut is located in the Northeast of the US and is one of the six states that make up New England. It borders New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

It's a small state but with many attractions. Small New England towns that seem to have lagged behind a century or so dot the countryside. Connecticut has a variety of destinations including the beautiful Litchfield Hills, Housatonic River and Connecticut River Valley; cities with history such as Hartford, New Haven, Danbury, Mystic Seaport Museum and New London are important destinations.

The Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley in northeastern Connecticut has been called "the last green valley" in the Boston-to-Washington megalopolis. Close to Hartford, Providence, and Worcester but far enough away to avoid urban sprawl, this 850 square mile region remains predominately rural. Roadways winding through rolling hills link the region’s many small towns, villages, farmlands and forests. Old mills dot the lowlands along the Quinebaug and Shetucket rivers and their tributaries. The park is best reached through Putnam.
