The Running Realtor: Day Trippin' to Guilford Connecticut

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

Day Trippin' to Guilford Connecticut

Leaving the heat of the city for a day at the shore is now a whole lot easier with Eastbound Trains to Guilford, Connecticut.  Folks from Manhattan typically think of New Haven as the end of the line but effective on the 4th of July Shoreline East added convenient connections that leave Union Station minutes after the arrival of trains from Grand Central that will deliver passengers to Guilford.

There are many activities within walking distance of the Guilford Train Station.  Walk less than 1/4 of a mile to step back in time while you wander the grounds of the oldest house in Connecticut.  Now a museum the Henry Whitfield House was constucted of stone around 1639.

Continuing in a northward direction about a half mile will bring you to the Guilford Green.  Considered one of the most picturesque town centers in New England you can simply enjoy the open space, poke around the surrounding shops or enjoy lunch at Whitfield's

My office happens to be right next to the restaurant so if you like Guilford and decide a second home in the suburbs would be a great weekend retreat from NYC contact  Dan Cummings - The Running Realtor via email or call my 24 hour access line : 203-672-2455

Dan Guilford is a great little town.  In fact Connecticut is lucky to have many little towns like Guilford .

George... Many towns have great features....  The nice wide Main Street in Middletown surrounded with resturaunts is a great spot.... See you there for the street festival...

Thesa... With the somewhat lean real estate market fine dining on a daily basis is not the norm...

You seem to be a guy that values his time and balances work with pleasure.  A guy that burns the candle at both ends.  Keep up all of the great things you are doing and remember to embrace all that is good.

Tracy... Life is short so you need to balance out work and play... BTW, Did you get into NY?
