Car Rental
“There is some public transportation. It's best to have a car for exploring all the beautiful local areas on both sides of the Connecticut River. A highlight is crossing the river from Chester to Hadlyme on the historic Chester/ Hadlyme ferry. Once there you will experience some of the most breathtaking sites of the river and countryside.”

“The Ivoryton Playhouse is located in Ivoryton, a beautiful section of historic Essex, on the banks of the Connecticut River. The Playhouse has been an important part of Connecticut’s cultural landscape for over 100 years. It was one of America’s leading summer showplaces, presenting a parade of stars such as Katharine Hepburn, Marlon Brando, Tallulah Bankhead, Betty Grable, Mae West and many, many more.”
