    10 thoughts on “Connecticut: The DON’Ts of Visiting Connecticut

    1. For a 10min video, you did a great job of summarizing the highlights. And as far as tourism, there isn't much more unfortunately. Our state government has never done much to support this business sector and our parks are pathetic compared to NYS and MA, which are enviable. If we ever decide to stop rescuing the dying city of Hartford and investing in the recreation and enjoyment of the rest of the state, we could compete with our neighboring state parks.

    2. Born and bred in CT, still here. Dunkin’ is gross. There i said it. You want a good donut? Hit up Brooklyn bakery in reidville drive in Waterbury off 84.

    3. As far as gas prices go you better take another look on gas buddy. Rhode Island is actually higher than CT. And CT is on par with Mass.

    4. How about "Don't forget, CT is A LOT more than Litchfield County and Mystic" . I am REALLY disappointed with this list, as that is about all he talks about.

    5. The term "nutmegger" comes from allegations that NY merchants would rip off southerners by selling them wooden bits they called nutmeg. Some suspect that this is because the southerners didn't know what nutmegged look like before it was ground into powder. Why this connects to CT is anyone's guess.
