Need a flight to Connecticut? No problem. Nestled in between the overcrowded states of New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Connecticut is an attractive location for commuters needing some peace and quiet after a long day at the office, and a relaxing vacation spot for New Englanders.

Just a short distance away in the state’s capital, Hartford was home to Mark Twain and Uncle Tom’s Cabin author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Book a flight to Connecticut for the history and quaint charm of the East Coast.

But Connecticut has its quirks. While many visitors book flights to Connecticut in an effort to escape the chaos of big city living, there are the little idiosyncrasies that make Connecticut a place worth exploring.

Insider tip: If your Connecticut flights lead you to Hartford, make sure you abide by the laws. Under no circumstances in Hartford are you allowed to cross the street while walking on your hands!

Popular Destinations in Connecticut

What is the climate like in Connecticut?

While New England is known for its diverse and drastic season changes, Connecticut is fairly mild.Winters are cold, with average temperatures fluctuating in the 20s and 30s. Spring has variable temperatures with frequent rainfall. Summer is hot and humid throughout the state, but it’s also high tourist season so flights to Connecticut are often more expensive and hotels and resorts book up fast. Fall months are mild, and bring foliage across the state in October and November. During hurricane season, tropical cyclones occasionally affect the region. Thunderstorms are most frequent during the summer.

When is the best time to fly to Connecticut?

Connecticut is a year-round destination for many New Englanders, but most vacationers keep their Connecticut travel to the summer months.

Peak Season:
Summer is high season for most attractions when visitors have the most options, and the most crowds, especially along the shore.

July and August, and weekends from May to Columbus Day are packed with tourists in Mystic and the Southeastern coast. Along with the crowds, attractions and restaurants are packed and rooms need to be booked months in advance. Tourists booking Connecticut flights and hotels for summer vacations should plan far in advance to avoid paying high prices and overcharges.

Off Season:

Many attractions close in the winter, but fall and spring are excellent times to visit — fall for the foliage and spring for the gardens and town greens in bloom. Several of the attractions that close in the winter reopen in April or May.

How long is the flight to Connecticut?

The duration of flights to Connecticut from other regions within the contiguous United States varies greatly. From Chicago, a major Midwestern transportation hub, you can expect flights to Bradley International Airport in Hartford to take as little as 2h and up to 23h, depending on stopovers. Flights from Chicago to Tweed New Haven Airport can take anywhere between 2h (direct) to 22h. While most options include one-stop, there are routes that require two; these trips are lengthy but may present good options for cheap flights to Connecticut. Flights to Connecticut from Los Angeles, a west coast travel hub, will often include two stops and take between 13-16h to either of the two Connecticut airports.

Most of the direct flights will originate from major travel regions on the east coast of the United States, such as Philadelphia, Charlotte, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and Washington, D.C. However, there are some Connecticut flight deals that offer direct service from some Midwestern cities, such as Chicago and Detroit. Typically, United Airlines and American Airlines offer the most non-stop flight options.

If you’re heading off the beaten path to a remote camping spot, like a nature preserve in Roxbury, the best mode of transportation would be a rental car; the drive from Hartford to Roxbury takes under 1h. If you plan to remain in whichever city you’ve landed, you can use ride service providers, like Uber or Lyft, taxis, or public transportation, like the intra-city buses provided by CT Transit. To go from New Haven, home of Yale University, to Greenwich, book a seat on the Northeast Regional train and arrive in less than 2h. Rail systems offer reasonable ticket prices for travel between more populated areas—you can travel from Stamford to New Haven on the Amtrak in under 1h, or from Stamford to New York City via the Metro-North Railroad in around 1h.

What are some things to do in Connecticut?

The renowned author Mark Twain made his home in Connecticut in the late 19th century. The building, which is called The Hartford House, was constructed in the American High Gothic style, and the perfection of its design and comfort was a great passion of Twain’s throughout his life. Today, it is a unique museum that provides tours and an opportunity to step back in time. About one-hour drive southeast of The Hartford House is Mystic Seaport, where you’ll find The Museum of America and the Sea, which is the largest maritime museum in the country. Mystic is a beautiful place to grab a bite and watch sailboats, too. If you are looking for a charming area with high-end shopping and farm-to-table restaurants, Greenwich is a great place to visit; the city sits along the New England coast and is due-east of the border with the state of New York.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Connecticut?

What is good to know if travelling to Connecticut?

  • One of the primary attractions in Connecticut is Yale University and the many museums in New Haven, the state’s “cultural capital”. No appointments are needed to visit the university, just drop in on the Mead Visitor Center, at 149 Elm Street. You can take a guided tour with one of the undergraduates. If you’re in New Haven, though, don’t just take in the museums and university. The Green is the city’s public park, a beautiful space right in the city center, which has been voted one of the top 100 parks in the U.S. Many festivals are held in the space year round, but one of the best is the New Haven Jazz Festival.
  • A popular trip for kids, the Mystic Steamboat runs through the summer months (May-October) from Mystic Seaport. The wooden coal-fired steamboat Sabino takes a 30-minute journey up the MysticRiver throughout the day. Evening cruises down the river can also be arranged.
  • Mark Twain lived in Hartford from 1874 to 1891. You can visit the house which was the author’s home for 17 years and in which he wrote Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. The Victorian mansion is now a national historic landmark and has been turned into a museum for Twain, with all furnished rooms containing the author’s possessions as well as an attached museum celebrating his life and works.
  • There are many “trails” available in Connecticut, details of all are available from the tourist board. Take a two-day wine trail to visit some of the 15 vineyards, a family fun trail, a foliage trail, or even a women’s heritage trail – which includes a visit to the Harriet Beecher Stowe center.
  • One of the best things about Connecticut is its close proximity to New York City. If you’re eager to visit Manhattan but need to travel on a budget, look for cheap flights to Connecticut. Once you’re in the state, you can board a train or ferry for a quick ride into Manhattan (and pay less than if you fly into New York directly).
