Groton is a town located on the Thames River in New London County, Connecticut, United States. Kick off your visit on the 4th (Wed): witness the site of a historic battle at Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park, then explore the different monuments and memorials at Elm Grove Cemetery, then kick back and relax at Eastern Point Beach, and finally enjoy the sea views from Avery Point Light. On the 5th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: explore the galleries of Slater Mill Museum, enjoy the sea views from The Stonington Lighthouse Museum, then learn about all things military at USS Nautilus, and finally contemplate the long history of Liberty Pole Square.

Plan my Groton trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
