You visited the Panama Canal years ago and were thrilled by the vastness of the waterway. Although less massive in size, the Enfield Falls Canal will fill you with the same sense of wonder and bemusement that you felt long ago in Central America. Treasure your sense of awe back at hotels in Windsor Locks, CT where polite staff will fill you in on the history behind the town’s unusual name. Windsor Locks was christened for the locks that line the canal that were established in 1829, and the city’s name has been a closed matter ever since.
Follow the impressive waterway as it trickles out into the Connecticut River by traveling along Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail by foot or bicycle. An abundance of dense greenery lines your walkway as the pleasant sound of moving water rushes on nearby. As someone who always thinks ahead, you packed a sumptuous picnic lunch of freshly baked bread, French cheeses, dried figs, and sparkling water to enjoy during your downtime. After covering the nearly five miles of trail and snapping photographs to your heart’s content (to use as watercolor inspiration afterward) utilize Windsor Locks rental cars to visit the New England Air Museum. You’ll find the history of Boeing 747s and Lockheed Electras as brilliant as the town’s deep-rooted waterways. And with the confidence of someone who has mastered traveling by land, sea, and air, return to Windsor Lock hotels for a much-deserved night’s sleep.
Your time in hotels near Windsor Locks, CT has come to an end, but you still feel the need to further explore the Land of Steady Habits. Fear not, for just 15 miles south sits the city of Hartford. You’ll still be within walking distance of the grassy banks of the Connecticut River while getting to enjoy the luxuries available at hotels in Hartford. Sounds like it might be time to lock in the deal on Travelocity.
