Watched the sunset on the beach! Beautiful sand and water! Plus we weren't charged for parking so it was totally free!

This is the best beach in Connecticut. There are miles of sandy beach and several different sections to choose from. Nature trails, a camp ground, and large picnic areas make this the perfect place to spend summer days at the shore. Don't expect waves or boogie boarding. This is LI Sound and even on the stormiest days waves are small.

I currently work at the Nature Center and find the park is a great place to walk, run or bike. There are a few options of trails to walk at Meigs Point. Each area has different birds. It's almost always windy, so bring a kite if you have one. The Nature Center is a great place to stop by and learn about the animals and see up close. We are open Tuesday through Sunday 10-5. Hope to see you!

Lovely park and beach off I 95. Marshy with egrets. Not a major destination but if you have little kids they have some turtles and snakes and space to run around.

Beautiful spot to see the sunset for free this time of year. Variety of places to see as well as wildlife such as birds and bunnies!

Spend the day at the beach, then go to Lenny & Joe's for lobster roll or fried clams!
