    Quiet, collected CT in Waterford

    Steeped in history and sloping down into the Block Island Sound from the southern side of Connecticut, Waterford is a charming and characterful New England town. It was founded by English settlers in the 17th century and later took a name that nods to Ireland's Waterford, across the pond. These days, it touts the white-sand, dune-backed stretches of Pleasure Beach and a clutch of intriguing historic homes, not to mention a whole range of elegant Waterford vacation rentals that'll have you sleeping within earshot of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Sea-washed Waterford beckons

    If you've got your eye on one of the beautiful Waterford vacation rentals by the sea, then you can look forward to a real New England beach experience. Many homes come loaded with deck spaces and BBQs to let you sizzle up seafood grills while looking out across the Atlantic rollers. Others have doorstep access to the sands, putting surfing, sunbathing and sandcastle building all on the menu. Waterford's also a great place to organize fishing expeditions or boat trips to remote isles out in the sound.

    Waterford meets New London

    Just check the map – Waterford vacation rentals are right next to New London. That's a real boon for culture buffs, who can rumble down to the Thames River and enjoy all sorts of attractions along the heritage-rich marina walks. The New London Maritime Society is a good place to start. Its collections tell tales of brave seafarers and coastguards. Then there's the Connecticut College Arboretum, a place to wander between maple groves, wonder at exotic orchid blooms and learn all about local botany.

    Summer's a-calling in Waterford

    While Waterford vacation rentals promise a cozy pad close to the sloshing Atlantic Ocean all year round, it's hardly a surprise that they are in most demand during the summer. That runs between May and August, and brings long, dry days that have plenty of sunshine. It's when you'll want to arrive if you've got swimming and sunbathing in mind. Spring, in April and May, and fall, in September and October, can also be popular, especially if you're looking to wander the local botanical gardens and woods.

    Between rivers and oceans in Waterford

    Waterford is a cut-out of the southern Connecticut shoreline. It stands on the headlands that jut out between the Thames River in the east and the Niantic River in the west. Its main natural draw is surely the coast, which is best seen at the Ocean Beach Park. That's home to wide arcs of gleaming white sand – you can go there in the summer to swim in the Atlantic and top up the tan. The Harkness Memorial State Park is another escape that's just next door. That's got manicured gardens, nature trails and picnic spots.
