Take a Local Vacation

Take a Local Vacation at One of Connecticut’s Green Inns and Bed & Breakfasts


According to a 2007 Expedia.com survey, 35% (that's nearly one-third) of all Americans don’t use their allotted vacation days. If you’ve resolved to take your much-deserved time off, but are skeptical about the real benefit of carbon offsets and sustainable travel, you can still enjoy your time off without feeling guilty for polluting the planet. Go local!

Alarmingly, that percentage is up from questionable investments by carbon offset organizations could make a person give up on the idea of taking a sustainable vacation all together. In that same Expedia.com survey, two in five adults reported feeling better about their job and more productive upon returning from vacation. So how do you enjoy some time off without feeling guilty for polluting the planet? Go local!

Local Treasures
Many unfound treasures lurk in all of Connecticut’s cities and towns. Between work, after school activities, dinner, medical check-ups, and unforeseen emergencies, it is easy to overlook the joy and excitement of your own regional attractions. By vacationing in your home state, not only will you pump valuable funds back into the local economy, you will also save money by not having to pay for airfare or transportation to and from the airport. Being selective about where you stay can also help to further the development of sustainable tourism.

Bed and Breakfasts
Even in one of the smallest states in the union, Connecticut has a few green bed & breakfasts and inns to choose from. For a quiet, intimate getaway, stay in the southeastern city of Lisbon at the Lonesome Dove Bed and Breakfast [http://lonesomedovebnb.com/]. Just a half hour from the legendary port of Mystic, Lonesome Dove has three unique guestrooms with fireplaces, professional foot massages, marriage specials (for both newlyweds and those looking to renew their vows) and a historical Native American totem pole. Each guestroom features fresh bathrobes and newly cut flowers. If you are looking for an indulgence, rent the Master Suite and take advantage of the jet tub in the bathroom. Both pink and white dogwood trees sit in the backyard (which is a certified National Wildlife Backyard Habitat), adding a visual treat amongst the wide stretches of green trees. Blue herons are often seen gallivanting along the nearby stream, which you can also canoe down.

Active Vacations
If you are looking for a more active vacation, stay at the Saybrook Point Inn [http://www.saybrook.com/], right on the coast in Old Saybrook. Not-to-be-missed views of both the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound can be seen here. Just a short drive away, you will find vineyards, antiquing, miniature golf, movie theatres, bike trails, fishing and American Impressionist art galleries. Back at the Inn, you’ll find a state-of-the-art health club with fitness machines and classes, steam room, sauna and indoor/outdoor heated pools. If you are in need of some hands-on help, visit their full spa for a massage, facial, body wrap, waxing, manicure and pedicure – there’s even special offerings for men. Once you are ready to eat, visit the Terra Mar restaurant; recognized as one of the top restaurants in the U.S. by Zagat’s Guide. Worried about your eco-impact? The Inn’s website states its commitment to being a green destination. “We are dedicated to a process of on-going environmental stewardship and proud of what we’ve accomplished.  We realize there’s always more we can do and that the process needs the input of our associates and feedback from our guests.”
