A little over a week ago, a few of my girlfriends and I hopped on the train to Essex, Connecticut for one of our coworkers’ weddings. I didn’t originally intend to blog about the town or our trip at all, but I was so enamored by the picturesque town that I had to post about it here. In hindsight, I’m really glad I packed my camera as I wanted to photograph pretty much everything in sight! The coastal town is just a short (around 3 hours) train ride from the Manhattan and would make for the perfect little weekend escape. Also, the New York Post is calling it the next Hamptons, so there’s that.
We stayed at the Griswold Hotel. Our room was nestled atop a “Curiosities Shop,” which only added to the charm of the town. Little did we know, our hotel is actually the oldest Inn in America. Yes, seriously. How cool is that?
