A Trip Through American History in Connecticut

One of the most populated states in the US, a bedroom community of NYC, birthplace of the insurance industry, is that Connecticut? Not if you are seeing it with Passport to Adventure! Julie &Mark seek out the real Connecticut, cycling through pristine countryside and meeting locals who have roots generations deep. Wherever you go, American history comes alive in Connecticut. At the Mystic Seaport, our 19th century maritime heritage is recreated in the streets of the village, and the historic ships docked in the harbor. In Hartford, Mark & Julie step into the life of American literary icon, Mark Twain, and in the Quiet Corners they’re introduced to little known aspects of the abolition movement. Kayaking in the Long Island Sound, sampling apple cider fresh from an 18th century press, and meeting the pioneers in America’s newest wine growing region — that’s Connecticut!
