Explore the Unique Sites of Connecticut

Connecticut is more welcoming than ever and with plenty to see and do, even for those that need to be conscious of accessibility. From parks, to museums, to restaurants, to universities, there is an abundance of Things to Do in Connecticut this Spring Season.

Greater New Haven

Spring is the perfect time to go out and see the city, and some natural beauty to check out can be found at Pardee Rose Gardens with 2 full acres of greenery perfect for a stroll and perfectly accessible. The garden is so picturesque that it’s perfect for weddings and photoshoots or otherwise to unwind from the urban jungle around. But this isn’t the only beautiful green space in New Haven with The Greens being an even larger 16-acre woodland in the city.

Getting around New Haven can get busy at times so you should opt for the largest personalized ride service in Connecticut. Here’s how M7 can make a difference for your trips around town: How to Get Personalized Rides in New Haven


Some of the best places to chow down in Connecticut are in Downtown Bridgeport. If you’re passing by the area, you might want to try this local gem for some no-frills casual authentic Mexican food at Azteca. If Brazilian is more of what you’re feeling for then there’s Terra Brasilis Restaurant for a meat eater’s paradise of Brazilian street eats. Or if your soul food is noodles, another hidden gem is Eat Noodle, where, like the name says, you can eat lots of noodles, especially noodles with soup.

If you’ve got some personal business around downtown or would like to relish the restaurant scene in the flesh, then the best hassle-free way to get around is a personalized ride with M7; accessibility is no issue with their wheelchair-friendly vehicle options, along with their traditional sedan/van service: Wheelchair-Accessible/Paratransit Transportation

New London

Visit Mystic Seaport Museum for some maritime history and stately ships of the past. With some 19 public areas and over 40 historic and reconstructed buildings. There’ll be unpaved roads and cobblestone streets in a style of the 19th-century. Accessibility will not be an issue here as there are accessible restrooms, wheelchairs available for loan, handicapped parking, and a 50% discount on admission for visitors with special needs and one adult accompanying them.

If your heart is more for the natural instead of the manmade then nearby is the largest outdoor beluga habitat in the US: The Mystic Aquarium has many more sea creatures calling the place home. The facility is also fully wheelchair-accessible and wheelchairs are available free of charge! Wheelchairs can be requested at the front gate and disinfected after each use.
