"Beautiful Town on the Connecticut River" East Haddam by msbrandysue

East Haddam Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 56 photos

Why Did I Come?

I came to East Haddam because it's the first entry in the book 1000 Things to See Before You Die, the USA/Canada edition. It was beautiful!!

My Favorite Part

It had to be the beautiful scenery at the Gillette Castle State Park. The Connecticut River and the hills were just....amazingly peaceful. I loved every minute of it.

Surprise Attraction

The obscure Gillette Castle was quite interesting. Such a marvel of a house and yet, the rooms were so small. I can't quite imagine what it must be like to live there but I bet it was quite the experience.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Small feel, Gillette Castle, Goodspeed Opera House
  • Cons:No fast food places to catch a quick bite lol
  • In a nutshell:BEAUTIFUL CT River Town

    The opera house is gorgeous and the Gillette Castle looks awesome! Can you imagine staying a night or two in that place. Excellent page!
