Connecticut Topography and Attractions

The name Connecticut is derived from the Mohegan word Quinnehtukqut, which means "long river place" or "beside the long tidal river".  The Connecticut River, New England's longest waterway, separates the eastern and western highlands.  Mystic Seaport, the state's most noted tourist attraction, was an important shipyard during its 18th and 19th century heyday.  Each year, thousands of visitors tour its restored buildings and ships.  For more Connecticut travel and tourism information, visit the official Connecticut tourism site and Connecticut Atlas
