"Rocky Neck Beach" Connecticut Things to Do Tip by SheDragon

Connecticut Things to Do: 92 reviews and 136 photos

During my last visit to CT, My stepmom, her daughter, and her granddaughter, and I went to Rocky Neck for the day. I will never forget the beach there. I had not grown to my full 6'1' height, yet, but was nearing the end of a rather mean growth spurt, so wasn't exactly short, either. I was standing at least 200 feet away from shore, the water had only gotten up to my waist, and I could see my feet!! The waves weren't as powerful as what I had experienced at other beaches down the eastern coast, so I wasn't fighting to keep my self where I was, and I could see hermit crabs crawling on the ocean floor. It was a truly magical experience!!
