Getaway Guide: One-Tank Trip to Thimble Islands, Stony Creek

Connecticut’s shoreline always has been the most treasured of all of the state’s naturally beautiful areas, and the crown jewel of this precious resource is the Stony Creek, Thimble Island area of Branford. This stunningly gorgeous coastal region is excellent for hiking, biking or boating. More relaxing bird-watching and picnicking options make this the perfect one-tank trip for any adventurer. The fact that it’s perfectly situated midway between the New York and Rhode Island borders makes this location even better, as most people in the state can reach there in less than an hour.
