CT: Middlesex County- Essex

Essex village may not be large but I found it filled with uniqueness. Its Main Street has unique finds from a store of only ducks, a chocolate house which announces when it has warm cookies and one of the oldest bars, the Griswold Inn, in the US serving since 1776.

Also of interest is a small stone enclosed park from the 1800s and a beautiful riverside cemetery that I’ve visited twice simply because of its beauty.

It also has The Connecticut River museum with unique events as well as a restaurant that requires a ferry to reach it on its own island!

I toured it on my bicycle but it’s an easy walkable tour. It has been named one of the best small towns in the US.
