Guilford has small-town charm and is a classic historic New England. A seashore enclave of gentle sea scented winds and classic rocky New England shores, Guilford has a picturesque nostalgic unhurried atmosphere – where it seems time has stood still. Victorian families would escape the big cities and come to Guilford for summer vacations in its natural beauty, beaches, and serene atmosphere. Guilford now is one of the prettiest and most dignified towns along the shoreline. Replete with - boutique shopping, restaurants that offer a wide variety of cuisines, boating, beaches, hiking trails, antique shops, art galleries, and historical home museums that display the town’s heritage. Summer camp, tennis, swimming, and sailing lessons for the tikes. Railroad service is available right in town so travel to and from New York or Boston is a delight. The picturesque nostalgic expansive “town green” is at the heart of Guilford. A beautiful space with a sense of history that is a great host for the town’s many events and for bringing people together. Guilford is considered by some to have the third largest collection of historic homes in New England, with important buildings from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. There are five historic house museums, including Dudley Farm and the Henry Whitfield House (1639), the oldest stone house in North America. Guilford is an easy road to life, remembering porch swings and yesterday’s togetherness. Honey comes from the beekeeper next door. Milk, butter, and ice cream from nearby dairies. Buy meats, cheese, maple syrup, and produce picked that morning. A place where neighbors will lend a hand without being asked or leave their garage open just in case you want to borrow a tool. A pastoral pause for re-doing old times. A short ride to the tall ships of Mystic Seaport, Olde Mystick Village, and New England's only beluga whales at Mystic Aquarium. On the coast, variety is the spice of life, seasoned with refreshing salt air. Adults will enjoy steamed lobsters on the dock; kids, the chug of the Essex Steam Train, or a mug of delicious apple cider at America’s oldest steam-powered cider mill. Catch a play at a variety of playhouses, numerous art galleries, or impressionist paintings at the Florence Griswold Museum, known as the Giverny of the US. Only 25 minutes to world-class entertainment at The Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods Resort and Casino, and MGM Grand.
