The Great Outdoors: Connecticut Style

CT Adventures
The Connecticut Explorer's Guide is a clearinghouse website featuring a wealth of information on how to choose, plan, and undertake your next outdoor adventure in our home state. Organized by type of outdoor undertaking (hiking, paddling, biking, etc.) the site integrates National GeographicTM topographical maps to help you pinpoint the "where" in your next CT-based adventure.

The site also includes a link to adventure forums through which you may read or post news articles; share your personal adventure stories; or "Ask the Pro" for tips on a specific type of outdoor skill.

Though there is plenty of commercial content on the site, the .com content is not overwhelming and doesn't seriously detract from what you may learn about Connecticut's outdoor assets. Surf's up!
