Drive up the coast to New London, a seaport that was once one of the world's busiest whaling ports. No longer an industrial hub, today New London is famous for its rich music and art scenes. Pay a visit to the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, which has one of the most important collections of American and non-Western art in the state. New London's mixture of beautiful colonial architecture and seaside views make it the perfect place to spend the day or even a weekend.
