Branford is a shoreline town located on Long Island Sound in New Haven County, Connecticut, 8mi east of New Haven. Get out of town with these interesting Branford side-trips: Mystic (Mystic Seaport Museum & Mystic Aquarium), Foxwoods Resort Casino (in Mashantucket) and Tantaquidgeon Museum (in Uncasville). There's lots more to do: head off the coast to Thimble Islands, explore and take pictures at Route 146 Scenic Drive, look for all kinds of wild species at A Place Called Hope, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Stony Creek Brewery.
