Milford ©
Milford is a Coterminous municipality within Coastal Connecticut and New Haven County, Connecticut, between Bridgeport, Connecticut and New Haven, Connecticut. On the 3rd (Fri), admire the masterpieces at Yale University Art Gallery and then look for all kinds of wild species at White Memorial Conservation Center. Here are some ideas for day two: take an in-depth tour of Knights of Columbus Museum, see the interesting displays at Shore Line Trolley Museum, then do a tasting at Paradise Hills Vineyard, and finally take an in-depth tour of Boothe Memorial Park and Museum.

For photos, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Milford travel planning website.

Newark to Milford is an approximately 2-hour car ride. Expect a daytime high around 54°F in November, and nighttime lows around 38°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Groton.

Groton

Groton ©
Groton is a town located on the Thames River in New London County, Connecticut, United States. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park and Avery Point Light. Popular historic sites such as Stonington Lighthouse Museum and The Mark Twain House & Museum are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Groton side-trips: Dalice Elizabeth Winery (in Preston), Connecticut Trolley Museum (in East Windsor) and Slater Memorial Museum (in Norwich). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center, see the interesting displays at The Submarine Force Museum, take in the exciting artwork at Stonington Vineyards, and do a tasting at Saltwater Farm Vineyard.

Plan my Groton trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by car from Milford to Groton takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or do a combination of bus and train. In November, daily temperatures in Groton can reach 54°F, while at night they dip to 37°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) to allow time to drive back home.
