Get the Perfect Vehicle for your Trip at Alfa Romeo of Larchmont

Connecticut has been named the most beautiful state in New England for a reason as it has gorgeous views, which are among the most spectacular in all of America. We highly recommend going from small town to small town while gaining traction along the coast, all while you're absorbing the rich history along the way. The Connecticut roadways are perfect every time of year but are especially spectacular in the summer thanks to the plenty of beach areas and numerous places to get fresh air. We here at Alfa Romeo of Larchmont want you to enjoy as much of this great state as possible which is why we have come up with some places you need to visit this summer!

This incredible route takes you right through Fairfield County and not the southern part of the Litchfield Hills region. If you're planning on taking this route, prepare to spend a full day or two doing some exploration. In Scenic Fairfield County, you can expect the city to meet the country in one of the most sophisticated regions in the state. Starting in Greenwich and going through Stamford, New Caaran, and Westport, you're going to find some high-quality shops, incredible dining options, and wonderful antiques.
