You’ll see Connecticut at its prettiest along this scenic route, especially in autumn months when leaves are awash in orange and yellow hues. Colonial-style homes and quaint small towns break up the drive between Mansfield and Brooklyn. The road skirts Mansfield Hollow State Park, where a 500-acre lake allows boating, fishing and canoeing.
