Destination guide

Waterbury and relaxed Connecticut life

The wide plazas and crisscrossing streets of Waterbury are your chance to sample a relaxed and workaday corner of the Eastern Seaboard. Less than 2 hours to the heart of New York City and close to the beautiful Connecticut coast, the city is packed with old redbrick mills and industrial depots – a hangover from the boom times of its brass trade. These days, Waterbury vacation rentals offer a gateway to the serene surroundings of The Constitution State, between the winding courses of the Naugatuck River, rolling oak forests, and the charming townships of central CT.

Things to do

American art and American cuisine in Waterbury

You can feel the pulse of the local arts scene in Waterbury with an evening visit to the Seven Angels Theatre or the Mattatuck Museum Arts and History Center. The first of these has local productions and touring troupes alike, while the latter comes bursting with antique portraiture from the 1900s and relics dating to the agrarian settlers of the 1600s. Then there's the town's wealth of eateries and diners, going from refined American bistros in timber-clad estate homes to noir burger joints with an Al Capone edge. Also, don't miss the striking Union Station tower – it was built to mimic the Medieval turret of an Italian palazzo in Siena…


Industrial history and camping in Waterbury

If hardy industrial depots, sprawling brick-built buildings, and imposing Neo-Classical architecture fronted by busts of proud presidents is your sort of thing, then prepare for a street scene that's bound to take your fancy. Waterbury vacation rentals around Main Street and Exchange Place will be your best base for sightseeing, and great for evenings of hopping between the craft beer bars and barista-led coffee spots of the downtown area. Meanwhile, for outdoorsy types, there's always the pine-lined cascades of the Naugatuck State Forest to the south and the camping grounds of the Black Rock State Park to the north.


Summertime is high time for sightseeing in Waterbury

There's no better time to wander the bustling streets of Exchange Place and gawp up at the Union Station Clocktower than during summer. Going from May to August, that's when the town's leafy blocks are shaded by blooms of oak and beech and chestnut. It's also the time when the river walks along the Naugatuck, the trails of the Mattatuck Forest, and the other regional parks are at their prettiest. You could break out the trench coat for a visit in winter, too, when snow blankets the surrounding CT hills and Waterbury vacation rentals glisten under a dusting of powder-white snow.

Natural features

Along the bends of the Naugatuck River in Waterbury

The winding, weaving Naugatuck River defines the very center of Waterbury. It wriggles through the middle of town as it goes from the wild woods of the Mattatuck State Forest in the north to the rugged canyons of the Naugatuck State Forest in the south. These are the 2 closest places to break out of the city with the walking boots, and each offers forest-lined hills that change color with the seasons, roaring creeks, and cascading waterfalls.
