Old Lyme Named ‘Best Summer Destination in CT’ by

Old Lyme has been named the ‘Best Summer Destinations in Connecticut’ by

OLD LYME — has just announced its list ofEvery State’s Best Summer Travel Destination’ and Old Lyme has won the honor for the state of Connecticut! The travel site states, “the focus [of the list] … is on the best of the best, the summer spots that hit it out of the park every single year this time of year.”

Justifying its selection of Old Lyme, the site states, ” This coastal town is big on history and pulses with fun all summer long. Known for throwing great Memorial Day and Fourth of July events, the town also sits near two state parks (Rocky Neck and Hammonasset) which both boast beautiful beaches. But you don’t have to leave Old Lyme to go “beaching”, as Soundview Beach is home to handsome sands and a collection of waterside bars and restaurants.”

Unfortunately, the site chose to publish the above text under a photo of the beach at Hammonasset State Park, which — as we all know — is not in Old Lyme, but never mind … we won the prize for ‘Best Summer Destination in Connecticut’ anyway!

    Fourth of July events? They mean the 15 minute parade in Lyme, which is great fun but it’s really only 15 minutes… I can’t think of any other Fourth of July events here!

      There is a boat parade on Roger’s Lake. This year it will be on Sunday, July 3rd, at 1pm!
