Eastern Connecticut truly is a microcosm of New England. Our industry ranges from large employers such as General Dynamics Electric Boat (Groton) and Pfizer (Groton and New London), to small, single-employee enterprises, to the world's largest casinos (Foxwoods Resort Casino and MGM Grand at Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun). We have miles of beautiful coastline and acres of wooded retreats.
Our transportation network includes two interstate highways, SEAT bus service, an airport, passenger and freight rail service and a deep-water port.
The Garde Arts Center, located in New London, has hosted such renowned performances as Tony Bennett, Itzhak Perlman and Bob Dylan, as well as touring Broadway productions. The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford sponsors a wide variety of artistic venues. In addition, our region is centrally located within an hour drive of Providence, R.I. and Yale/New Haven as well as a two hour drive to both Boston and New York.
Norwich's Dodd Stadium is home to the Connecticut Defenders, the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. The Mohegan Sun Arena is the home of the WNBA Connecticut Sun, the women's basketball team featuring two University of Connecticut graduates.
Most of the cities and towns throughout eastern Connecticut operate their own public schools, keeping the system responsive to local needs. Higher education opportunities range from two-year institutions such as Three Rivers Community Technical College (Norwich), to the University of New Haven (New Haven and several off-site locations), the University of Connecticut (Storrs and Groton), Mitchell College (New London, offering two and four year degrees), and Connecticut College (New London), all offering undergraduate programs, as well as the United States Coast Guard Academy (also in New London).
