Attractions include over twenty rides plus water activities on a beach off of Lake Quassapaug. Right nearby there is many Stamford Hotels for you to stay overnight. Then there are the Famous Coney Island rides, now known as Luna Park right in Brooklyn. The famous Cyclone wooden roller coaster is located there.

There is no shortage of museums either in the area. One of my favorites is Liberty Science Center in Elizabeth, NJ. It’s easily accessible from many locations and there is so much to do there.

There are the famous ones such as The Museum of Natural History and the Metropolitan Museum of Art then there is the Madame Tussauds wax museum for a more off-beat museum.
