Lake Compounce - One of Connecticut's Best Attractions
by Daniel R.
I live in CT and happen to live near one of CT's best attractions, Lake Compounce. If you will be near central CT, near West Hartford, you must stop at Lake Compounce.
Before I go on, I want to mention that West Hartford is a great place to go for nice shops and fun restaurants.
Back to Lake Compounce. It is a pretty good sized theme park in Bristol, CT, right near the ESPN corporate campus, which is also fun to check and see the satellite farm. At Lake Compounce you can ride roller coasters, play games, and have a relaxing day.
I work at ESPN and we do a Lake Compounce day every year with over 3,000 employees and families. Their website can tell you more, I'll spend this time telling you more must see spots.
New Haven CT has some of the worlds best pizza joints, most notably Frank Pepe's. They have a special oven that makes the best crust and the place has been open for a hundred years. The last time I went I noticed everyone ordering the pizza with chicken on it. They also have very reasonable beer and wine prices.
Sally's Apizza is also famous. Expect there to be a line at either place, but it is worth the wait. Just walking down the street is fun itself because it is in an old town neighborhood on a stret filled with Italian restaurants and pizza joints. Besides there things, there is not much else to do here unless you get to the coast and can play on the water.
