The Roads That I Have the Most Fun Driving Around Connecticut
I've been a licensed driver here in Connecticut for 37 years, I was a traffic reporter on tv and radio for 10 years. I know these roads, and I love driving. We live in one of the most cramped parts of the country, a lot of our roads are horrible, but some are fun.
I was driving through the Town Plot neighborhood in Waterbury, and just for fun, I took a ride down Chipman Street headed towards Oronoke Road. There's a little dip by the Old Colony Drive intersection that feels like you're on the Mad Mouse at Quassy for a second. My dad used to take us for a ride in his Caddy and make us all scream when it felt like we caught a little air there.
I started thinking about roads and streets around Connecticut that are fun to drive down. I thought of a couple that challenge your driving skills, one to catch a peaceful moment of Zen, and a couple that will satisfy your wanderlust, and why I think they're so fun.
