Old Saybrook attractions tend to be water-based, as this is a coastal community very much in love with their lakes, rivers and even the Atlantic Ocean, which isn’t too far away from home. One of the town’s most notable attractions is the Old Saybrook Town Beach. Visitors can sun bathe, go swimming or take a boat ride from this popular port. Why, there are even ocean tours available throughout this town’s ports and harbors. The town is located at the mouth of the Connecticut River. There are shores, vistas and marinas (not to mention shops and restaurants) all along the beach area.
There are two public beaches in Old Saybrook. The Old Saybrook Beach allows residents to buy a seasonal pass. The beach also provides bathrooms, lifeguards, gazebos and snack bars for its visitors. The other public beach is Harvey's Beach, which is just up the street. The beachfront area is about 100 yards long. Remember, in addition to beach dwelling, there are also marinas and boat launching harbors of interest.
Besides Harvey’s and the Old Saybrook Town Beach, there is plenty of other physical activity in town. Some of these activities include tennis camps, summer sports camps, boys’ lacrosse camp, soccer camp, street hockey camp and a fishing derby. Better yet, the park welcomes musicians for live concerts every Wednesday.
There are also boating activities in Old Saybrook. People travel from all over the country just for the chance to dock at the marina next to the ocean. There are also boating activities in Connecticut River and the Long Island Sound estuary. Last but not least, don’t forget about the Old Saybrook Haunted House coming up in October just in time for Halloween.
This town isn’t just about history and festivals. There are indoor and outdoor attractions that will keep the whole family entertained!
