There is a train station a few miles down the road. We are approximately two hours from New York City and Boston.
The closet small airport is Tweed New Haven (HVN). It’s about a 20 minute drive from our house. The closet large airport is Hartford-Springfield (BDL). It is located an hour away.
There is a ferry in Bridgeport, CT that takes you across the Long Island Sound. Cars are allowed for $58 per car which includes the driver. Other passengers or persons who walk on pay $19. Sundays and holidays have a $4 extra charge per car. While the town of Bridgeport isn’t much to see, the town of Port Jefferson on the other side is quite cute. One can easily spend a few hours there. (Prices are for 2018 rates)
Uber & Lyft are also available in the Branford area – as is Uber Eats! Regular taxi service is available too.
