"My Life, My Love and My Lady are the Sea...." Essex Local Custom Tip by msbrandysue

Essex Local Customs: 3 reviews and 8 photos


So, Essex is a small road that leads to see the Connecticut River and everyone here loves the water. They have a lovely little area/riverwalk with an open green lawn, benches and harbor. I loved walking here to people watch, journal write or enjoy a sandwich. And I definitely wasn't the first person to have done this.

The sound of the river, and watching all the nice sailboats is quite relaxing. Free parking can be found at the Connecticut River Museum. It's a worth a free, calming walk if heading to Essex. I'm almost sure you'll find yourself awfully relaxed and ready for the next adventure....maybe even a schooner ride. :)
