Waterfront lodging in Connecticut places you close to the sea

New England’s coastal areas attract vacationers from all over the world, so it makes sense that waterfront hotels, resorts, including beach and ocean resorts, are prepared to highlight the best of the coast. CT waterfront lodgings on the beach offer sand and water views, and many help guests obtain beach passes and water sports equipment like kayaks. The beach and waterfront are a big favorite for kids and families, of course, and plenty of lodgings are ready to accommodate families of multiple generations. These lodgings also are usually just steps away from great dining, shopping, beach and trail walks, and wonderful views.
