First things first: check out some trees. Whether you hit up Bartlett Arboretum, the Stamford Museum and Nature Center or just walk around the neighbourhood, hotels in Stamford bring you trees. But if leafy greens aren’t your thing, how about whole grains?—of sand, that is. Both Cummings Park and Cove Island Park have beach access. Elbow your way onto a patch of sand during popular summer months, or enjoy some cocoa while watching the waves break during the winter.
Ready for some year-round adventure? Check out Stamford Twin Rinks, where you can skate on two indoor ice rinks. See a live performance at the Palace Theater or a movie at The State Cinema, and enjoy the historic architecture as well.
Got your looky-loo spectacles on? Venture away from your Stamford accommodation out to Shippan Point, one of the most affluent neighbourhoods in the city, for some upscale house-gawking. Or, for a more bohemian experience, people-watch at Columbus Park, where everyone from businessmen to buskers to local children hang out.
While Stamford is 65 km from the heart of New York City, it’s only 50 km to one of the Big Apple’s busiest international airports, LaGuardia Airport (LGA). Grab yourself accommodation in New York City, and you could turn your Stamford holiday into a sweet little New England getaway—all at the everyday discount prices on Wotif. Go get ’em, tiger!
