Branford Beach Getaways

beach getaways

When you choose a Branford vacation home rental, you will be approximately 6 miles away from the attractions of New Haven while also having plenty of in-town attractions and the New England small town feel. Travelers interested in the colonial period will not want to miss a visit to the Harrison House, a colonial saltbox house. Saltboxes are historical homes unique to New England that feature a sharply slanting roof on one side, resulting in one story on one side of the house and two stories on the other. Patrons of the arts will want to make a trip to the Puppet House Theatre. Along with hosting plays and concerts throughout the year, the venue is also home to a puppet museum.

Even though Branford, Connecticut is located just 2 hours from NYC, its convenient location is only the beginning of a long list of reasons why this New England town is perfect for your next vacation. Branford is also home to 20 miles of coastline on Long Island Sound and thousands of acres of undeveloped, natural beauty, complete with parks, reserves and more. Capturing the New England ideal, visitors can explore the unique Thimble Islands on an entertaining tour boat, shop at one of many eclectic boutiques, or dine on fresh seafood prepared traditionally. For a family outing, try taking a drive on scenic Route 146, which winds through some of Connecticut's loveliest natural settings, much of it protected and filled with wildlife. No matter how you spend your New England trip, Branford vacation home rentals are a safe bet for couples and families alike: whether you're on a budget or just having fun, browse our listings for more information.
