Tell Me Something Good About Connecticut August 20th 2019

August 20, 2019

Here’s something that doesn’t really sound like news – at least until you look a little deeper. A British think tank called the Legatum Institute analyzed a mountain of economic data going back to two-thousand-nine and found that Connecticut is the second-most prosperous state. No surprise, right? Look a little closer at their report, though and you’ll find some surprising things about our state!


It looks like it’s going to be another hot week. If you’re looking for ways to stay cool, check out one of Connecticut’s exciting water activities. From boating and tubing to paddling and rafting—here are just a few last-minute ways to get on the water.
