Get the door, it's the liquor store
Sure, it’s called New London, and fine, it’s on the Thames River. But New London has a whole different vibe... from Old London — this place is truly a maritime lover’s dream. In the 1800s, it was among the world’s top three busiest whaling ports, along with Nantucket and New Bedford, and that salty, nautical spirit remains in the town today. Ocean Beach Park is a great place to spend the day. Featuring a boardwalk and a dazzling white-sand beach that stays cool even on the hottest and muggiest of summer days, this park also features an Olympic-sized freshwater pool, a spray park, water slides and, of course, 18 holes of delightful putt-putt. In town are a network of gorgeous, walkable streets complete with delicious surf-and-turf dining, museums, aquariums and destination hotels and B&Bs. This coastal community is a fantastic place to live and is directly north of the easternmost portion of Long Island, giving it access to open ocean beyond. If you’re in New London, you’re also in Drizly territory. That means you can browse our virtual shelves and find the best beers, wines and liquors anywhere on earth, make your selections and have them delivered to your door in under an hour.
