WATER TAXI PICK UP SPOT (City Pier behind Union Train Station)
New London’s Historic Waterfront District buzzes with delicious dining experiences, shops, music and art venues. Over 30 eateries populate this 26-block National Register Historic District. Nathan Hale, Benedict Arnold, and Eugene O’Neill walked these streets. America’s greatest architects left their mark on the buildings. From the collection of Tiffany windows at St. James Church to the restored movie palace, the Garde Arts Center, to the shops, galleries, and plentiful entertainment, there is much to see and do.
A variety of tours are available. The Mystic Whaler, a reproduction 19th cargo schooner, offers day sails and lobster cruises from City Pier. A few steps away you’ll find Wheeling City Tours where you can hop on a Segway and glide around New London. And a couple doors down at the U.S. Custom House you can book a Lighthouse tour.
