Route 9
Essex, CT

Best Riverside Biking
A 22-mile ride along the lower Connecticut River takes you past estates built by ships’ captains and over a drawbridge to one of the legendary homes of American musical theater, the Goodspeed Opera House. Then it’s up the hill to William Gillette’s bizarre fieldstone castle, and back across the Connecticut on a dollar ferry ride. Exit 3 off Route 9 (start)
