Like all of the New England states I’ve been to, Connecticut has its quaint, historic areas and its old, industrial areas. And, like any place that relies heavily on tourist monies, Connecticut tries to make the former more visible than the latter. 

On a recent trek through the state, we stopped for a bathroom break at the Middletown rest area, which proved to be quaint if not historic. 

There was plenty of greenery along with picnic tables, restrooms and snack machines. 

My favorite feature was the area fenced off for travellers’ four legged friends. I found the fire hydrants and wood rail fence to be a fabulous touch.

Thanks for reading and please drive safely 🙂
