Connecticut's landscape includes lakes, waterfalls, rivers, river valleys, sandy shores, rocky coastlines, and forests. The Connecticut River runs through the center of the state and empties into Long Island Sound, Connecticut's outlet to the Atlantic Ocean. The river is the longest in the nation without a major port at its mouth. The name of the river comes from the Native American word "Quinnehtukqut," meaning "beside the long tidal river." The state was named after the river.
There are many things to see in Connecticut. Yale University, founded in 1701 in New Haven, is the third oldest college in the country. One can step back into the 1800s at a New England whaling village in Mystic. In Bridgeport, there is a circus museum named after publicity genius P.T. Barnum. And since Connecticut has the largest income per capita, as well as one of the lowest unemployment rates, sightseers sometimes travel Greenwich looking at the jaw-dropping million-dollar mansions.
West Hartford is the boyhood home of Noah Webster, creator of the first American dictionary. Eli Whitney developed interchangeable gun parts in Connecticut as well.
