Best of Connecticut 2017

August 29, 2017

For the 20th year in a row we scoured the state to discover, and in some cases, rediscover the best Connecticut has to offer. 

Once again, we explored food & drink, fun & leisure and shopping. We also took a fresh look at our categories and added many more across the board, amassing 213 winners in all.

Alongside some of the winners are bullets (•) which denote repeat Best of Connecticut winners from 2016.

Did we miss some of your favorite places to eat, play and shop? Let us know!
