Stamford, Connecticut is part of the New York metropolitan area and is only 30 miles from the city, but this New England city has an identity all its own. Stamford was settled in 1641 and has history lurking around every corner. Add in thriving cultural and arts scenes and you have a well-rounded vacation experience in store for you in the Constitution State.
Stamford vacations are great for anyone looking to explore local history while also getting a little exercise. The Downtown Stamford Historic District is a walkable group of streets, including Main, Bank, Bedford, and Atlantic streets. Here, you'll find 56 beautifully restored buildings, including the Beaux Arts-style Old Town Hall, the Avon Theatre, and many other amazing, historic structures. When looking on Travelocity for Stamford vacation packages, make sure to get a hotel in Stamford that's right downtown to make exploring the area super easy.
If you decide to venture further afield, book one of many Stamford car rentals. You'll be rewarded with Stamford's natural beauty, especially at Cove Island Park, located on the Long Island Sound. Out-of-towners have only recently been granted access to this 83-acre park, so you know it must be worth a visit if only locals were allowed before. There are beaches and trails at the park for outdoor lovers to hike, bike, skate, and fish.
Held every May in downtown Stamford is one of the more unusual events that you're likely to find anywhere, and that's STEMfest. If you're interested in anything and everything STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), then head to Mill River Park for activities and displays in all four of these subjects.
