Essex, CT —
A Wonderful Place to Visit Anytime of the Year!
The town of Essex is a wonderful place to visit anytime of the year! This winter you could start your day with breakfast at Abby's Place for a sit down meal in the Dauntless Marina, or if you would like a quick meal to go, stop by Olive Oyl's for freshly made baked good and breakfast sandwiches. Next, you should stroll down to the foot of Main Street and if it's not too chilly, bring your binoculars to look for bald eagles which nest along the shores of the Connecticut River. Head into the CT River Museum to warm up and learn about the history of the river.
