New England Trip 2012 – Day 5 – Clinton, Connecticut

New England Trip 2012 – Day 5 – Clinton, Connecticut (Clinton Crossing Outlet Mall)

After four days of driving on mostly secondary roads through the Adirondacks and Vermont, I had to readjust to the joy of Interstate Highways and driving in more densely populated areas. After visiting Castle Craig in the morning, we headed to New Haven, Connecticut Lighthouse Point area on the Atlantic Ocean.

The weather was a bit too cool for tipping a toe in the water and that would probably explain the lack of people on the beach. A few fishermen had there lines in the water but not much else was happening in this beach area.  Even the sea gulls were limited in numbers.

Our next stop on today’s route was the large mall at Clinton, Connecticut.  Known as Clinton Crossing, the mall space provides any ‘factory outlet’ shopper lots of opportunities to spend money. (Click the list below to enlarge)

While my wife worked her way from store to store, I wandered around the mall taking some more photos of the mall and taking photos of the many colorful trees in the parking lot.



An interesting place to visit and happily they have plenty of colorful trees and foliage in the gardens and parking lots :-).

A bit too late to do much more touring so we headed along the coast in search of a place to stay for the night.
