With spring officially here to stay, it’s time to start planning your upcoming springtime escape to peaceful Old Saybrook, CT. Whether you’re hoping to dust off your clubs at a historic golf course, kayak through serene Great Island Wildlife Area, or fish for trophy-sized striped bass in Long Island Sound, your visit to the Lower Connecticut River Valley is bound to provide long-lasting memories. Saybrook Point Resort & Marina is not only minutes away from the area’s best spring activities, but we’re one of the only Connecticut resorts to provide world-class spa services, river-view fine dining, and seasonal slips.
The 4 Best Spring Activities
Saybrook Point Resort & Marina is a short drive or walk from the area’s best spring activities. We’ve conveniently hand-selected our four favorite things to do in Old Saybrook, CT, during the springtime. Enjoy!
- Golf – Two historic golf courses are practically within a stone’s throw from Saybrook Point Resort & Marina: Old Lyme Country Club and Fenwick Golf Course. Our guests have exclusive access to Old Lyme, a nine-hole private hidden gem where no tee times are needed! Fenwick is the oldest golf course in the state of Connecticut, making it a massive draw in the summertime. The springtime is the best season to visit if you prefer a speedy pace of play as Fenwick sees less traffic during April and May.
- Fishing – Sport fishing is one of the top spring activities here in Old Saybrook. Long Island Sound is home to a diverse, thriving fish population thanks to its cozy location between Connecticut and New York. There are two sensational fishing charters right here in Old Saybrook: Islander Sport Fishing Charters and Kingfisher Charters. Both family-owned companies specialize in striped bass and bluefish angling trips, but you may also cross paths with fluke, blackfish, and scup. Islander often goes a little deeper into the ocean in search of tuna, shark, marlin, and wahoo!
- Bicycling – Our peaceful location along the Connecticut River is a prime spot for leisurely cycling. If you aren’t able to bring along your favorite bicycles, don’t fret, because Pedal Power rents several types of bikes in nearby Essex, CT. We recommend embarking on a voyage along waterfront Highway 154. “The Loop” around North Cove Road, meanwhile, has several historic homes, river views, and centuries-old trees.
- Picnic at Harvey’s Beach – Very few simplicities in life can top a quiet springtime picnic on a warm beach. No two picnics need to be the same, but it’s tough to beat turkey sandwiches, pasta salad, crisp vegetables, and iced tea on a beautiful spring day. Harvey’s Beach is a 3.4-mile bicycle ride from Saybrook Point Resort & Marina for those who’re planning to explore the area on two wheels.
