Stony Creek is one of the storied seaside villages of the Connecticut shore. It is accessible only by Thimble Island Road which passes under the Shore Line East railroad tracks to the heart of this densely populated harbor community.
Victorian homes, art galleries, the historic Puppet House theater, the Stony Creek museum, small restaurants and the last but certainly not least Thimble Island Cruise are all reasons to visit. In all seasons Stony Creek makes for a lovely stroll or sightsee from the car.
Directly offshore, the Thimble Islands are an archipelago of glacial remnants. The Thimble Island cruise weaves stories of how these rocks were made habitable, Long Island pirates, local writers such as Jack London and Ayn Rand, with the sights of the island-bound homes and the natural beauty of Long Island Sound.
Stony Creek is an essential stop on the Connecticut shore!
