@ohhbitty:  Welcome to Connecticut, also known as the Constitution State and the Charter Oak State – George Washington also referred to us as the Provisions State since we supplied so many goods to the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War! We do get a fair amount of snow, but it really depends on the year (and we don’t receive nearly as much as people in upstate New York – near the Great Lakes – seem to get).

Groton is a nice little town based near New London (which can be nice, but it depends on the time of day and the area you go to). If you need things to do Mystic Seaport and Aquarium is just a short drive away. Groton also has some nice parks and, as it’s situated on the water, it has some beaches as well. If you need a bit of gambling or adult fun, then you can always head to the two area casinos – Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun – which are a town or two over in Uncasville. There are also the Outlets in Clinton too.

You’ll also be relatively close to Rhode Island and, if you want, you can take a ferry from New London out to Block Island during the summer. It’s supposed to be really beautiful. And as a PP mentioned, Cape Cod, Boston, and NYC are all a reasonable distance away by car or train (not sure about traveling to the Cape by train).

Congratulations on your marriage and your move! Smile

@ohhbitty:  Congrats!!!!  But I’m confused, you’re in Michigan and worried about the snow in Connecticut? LOL!!!

I guess the difference is MIchigan you live in a state of normal snowfall- where Connecticut just gets dumped on in a big way a couple/few times each winter??

@ohhbitty:  I’m not sure where in subtropical MI you live but Groton doesn’t get piles of snow. It’s on the ocean which helps moderate temperatures. I just looked it up (because I’m curious) and Groton, on average, gets 4.6″ snow in Dec., 8″ snow in Jan., 7″ snow in Feb., and 3.2″ in March.

Congratulations on the new assisgnment! I recommend NAVSTANPT if you ever make it up that far in the snow belt! πŸ™‚ Ha ha.

@ohhbitty:  Congrats! πŸ™‚ Fiance and I will be getting married on April 13, 2014 and then moving straight to Hawaii as he has gotten orders to Pearl Harbor. I am from CT though, born and raised. There is definitely a lot of snow in New England so be prepared!

It’s also very beautiful throughout the rest of the year. Make sure you take advantage of the area, New England has a lot of charm and is very different from the rest of the US. πŸ™‚
