Long one of New England's most popular tourist destinations, Southeastern Connecticut's attractions center around shoreline and heritage sites and activities, and the two Native America Casinos in the region.
Tourism is our fastest growing industry employing at least 30,000 people and continuing to expand. The two casinos and their Convention Centers make southeastern Connecticut not only a major gaming destination, but also a top Meeting and Convention location in the Northeast.
Two traditional tourist attractions not only draw hundreds of thousands of visitors annually, but are also major educational facilities with programming for children, adults, and college students, both locally and throughout the country.
Heritage attractions abound in Southeastern Connecticut, with every town boasting its own interesting history and sites of interest to any visitor interested in experiencing the story of the region and America.
