    Scenic area and path will lead you to the falls. Beautiful short hike to see the falls will take you over a bridge and close to railroad tracks. Great photo opportunities in this quiet area.

    Great small museum full of wonderful antiquities,paintings, statues of greatness and an aplithara of past time captures that will make your visit well worth while and enjoyed. I enjoyed it as i went here to the Academy in the 80's and brings back great memories and new ones as well. Great stop in historic Norwich. Also gander all the city's great Victorian architecture on Broadway ave.

    Our family decided to spend the 4th of July here. We arrived when the ballpark opened and had no problems getting a great parking space, with an easy walk to the gate. This is really a nice ballpark and very family oriented. When we passed through the gate they were giving out free apple pie to celebrate the 4th.

    We walked around the stadium and then found our seats. We were seated right behind home plate. We did purchase our tickets online a few days before. We were so up close with all that was going on. The granddaughters were hoping to catch a foul ball, but with the nets none came our way. After watching where a few of the fouls were going, we all decided that up higher on the 1st base side was where most of the balls went. There were several balls caught by those in the stands, but we weren't so lucky. Maybe next time girls!

    This ballpark has all you need to enjoy the game, from food, beer and a nice gift shop. We happened to be here on a Thursday for "Thirsty Thursday", beer only $2, cheaper than water and sodas!

    Following the game we sat back and enjoyed the fireworks for the 4th. This was a show that did not disappoint. So glad we decided to spend our 4th here. The stadium was packed, so we were anticipating a long wait in leaving the stadium, but to our surprise they have the exit set up very well and easy exiting. I know we have waited at other stadiums trying to exit on a main highway and it is terrible. This was a piece of cake. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

    I was born/raised in Norwich. I have always enjoyed a trip to this cemetery to slowly walk through the rows of ancient stones and read the inscriptions. It’s hard not to envision life back then; a time before and during the Revolutionary War, battles being fought for independence, etc. I always get a sense of pride that my little town had even a small part In the birthing of this great country.
    I live in the SF Bay Area now, but visit every time I return.

    The Leffingwell House Museum is an excellent colonial era inn restored as period museum with three floors of exhibits. Open on Saturdays, I was there on a special "Benedict Arnold" history day when reenactors (Kevin Titus) of both the Revolutionary War hero and then traitor Benedict Arnold as well as George Washington gave speeches describing the motives of both men at that time. An annual show (with other period actors describing the exhibits) not to be missed.

    The Museum itself has floors dedicated to different Colonial and early American industries that were located in this Inn at one time. Lots of historical artifacts have been gathered during Norwich's long history to be on display. The Museum should be seen by anyone interested in that period of American history.

    This hidden gem of a park is well worth a visit, particularly as it receives a lot less traffic than some of the larger nearby attractions. It's a surprisingly large park with plenty to do, including a rose garden, jogging trails, fishing, swimming, and playgrounds for kids. The roads are a bit twisty, but are well-marked with signs and arrows. We hung out by a large pond with a trail running around it, with a socializing center on one shore. The rose garden has a tiny parking lot next to it, but there's plenty of parking within the park. We didn't manage to see everything on the first visit, but we'll be back again. This park wasn't crowded, which was nice.

    Went to Mohegan with intent to check out CT breweries and Epicure was first on my list. Welcomed by Jenny - she’s an owner and one of the nicest people I’ve met in my travels. I had BDubs - a drinkable pale ale that lives up to being named for a loved one. Also tried the Kolsch - one of the best. Clean on the palate, crisp and refreshing. It’s a nice, open space. Comfortable. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay longer. Great people with good beer as a priority - visit them!

    A great library with a wide range of resources. Resources range from children to adult books, magazines, and computers. There is also volunteer opportunities for students during the summer. Conference rooms can also be used to have a private or silent study hall for yourself. It is a great place to hang out with your friends and is relatively quiet for the most part. The librarians are very nice and approachable so never be afraid to ask any questions.

    Nice little place. Nothing over the top but simple, nice and friendly. Always a new artist when I go there. When coupled to the other sites nearby on first Friday it very nice. Modest but the artist who display there are always pleasant and answer any questions you may have. I try to go whenever I am around for first Friday.

    This small, local theater has a very diverse selection of productions; from jazz to music from every genre to plays. We have enjoyed several evenings there and look forward to our next visit. It's fun and it's local! Great.

    My first experience with a black box theater. I enjoyed the intimacy between audience and performers. It was a little tricky finding parking as I'm not familiar with Norwich. I called the theater and the manager talked me through the directions to the parking lot across the street from the theater. Very helpful.

    Sort of a disappointment. Would have thought it might be more of a gem being the centerpiece of the harbor. doesn't seem to be much happening there

    The dining outside was lovely - and our first time at a restaurant! The tables were spread out, disinfected, the waiter wore gloves that he changed frequently. Paper menus. The food was good and a reasonable value. Tell them NOT to bring you your check in the plastic holder - that was the only thing they did that felt unsafe during COVID times. I ate here twice during a recent visit, and they worked with my concerns for safety.

    The employees were great! We had 8 people and did the secret agent room. It was a challenge for sure to figure out the clues but we had fun. We talked about doing it again.
    The only issue we had was there no ventilation in the room and it got hot.

    So I lived in Norwich for 6 years and didn’t know about this place. Went with friends in a rainy day. Drinks were inexpensive, food was excellent and service was good.
