Welcome to New London!

Visit Green Harbor Beach and Fort Trumbull State Park for beautiful waterfront parks, or the historic waterfront district of Downtown New London for a boardwalk and majestic piers. A water taxi service is available at City Pier, and if you’re interested in sailing, you can book a day sail or lobster dinner cruise with Mystic Whaler Cruises. Go back in time with historic museums, including the Custom House Maritime Museum, Lyman Allyn Art Museum, and Monte Cristo Cottage, the boyhood home of famed American Playwright Eugene O’Neill.

For great outdoor dining on the Thames River, check out On the Waterfront for a gorgeous new sun deck. For more casual dining options, visit Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock or Fred’s Shanty. There are also many restaurants to choose from in downtown New London. Several of them have decks overlooking the water, including Hot Rod Café, Mambo Bar & Restaurant, Muddy Waters Café, and Noble. New London’s cuisines are diverse and delicious, ranging from Italian at Tony D’s to Thai at Noodles and Rice Bistro, American at The Green Room, Indian at Swan Tandoori, Mexican at Mi Casa, and Organic at Right Path Organic Café. Our boutique shops and beautiful gift stores, such as Flavours of Life, Thames River Greenery, and Studio 33, are waiting for your visit.
