Town Listings on the State Office of Tourism Website 

The Connecticut Office of Tourism has enhanced the functionality for the Town Pages on ctvisit.com. Search data indicated that many visitors to the website were looking for information related to a specific town. These pages allow municipal officials to tell the story of their town, provide stunning images and display social media feeds. For an example from Milford, click here.

If you are an official representative of a town (or approved designee), please visit www.ctvisitsupport.com for general information.
