Old Saybrook is a model New England town, situated where the Connecticut River meets Long Island Sound. In addition to this great natural location, Old Saybrook is a goldmine of 17th, 18th, and 19th century American history. The downtown alone has more old buildings (relics, really) than many larger New England towns. Part of the reason may be that Old Saybrook is Connecticut's third-oldest town, and this fact is not hard to miss: there are at least four 17th century "saltbox" houses in Old Saybrook, and many more Georgian and colonial style 18th century houses lining the streets. Visit Fort Saybrook Monument Park for a family learning experience, or head down to the coast and comb the beach. Regardless of why you want to visit Old Saybrook, keep in mind that this little coastal town is mere hours away from the metropolises of New York and Philadelphia - but with Old Saybrook vacation home rentals, why would you want to leave anyway?
