I found an interesting article from delish about the "oldest restaurant in each state" and I was curious what and where were the oldest in New York and Connecticut. In Connecticut it is The Griswold Inn located in Essex and in New York it's The 76' House in Tappan. We will take a look at those two establishments and also I was curious and looked at what is the oldest in nearby New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

I recently wrote an article about Denny's in Enfield lasting 45 years and I thought that was a good run. That's nothing compared to some of the places on the list published by delish. In New Jersey, we will look at The Cranbury Inn located in the township of Middlesex. In Pennsylvania, it will be McGillin's Old Ale House (love the name) located in Philadelphia.

In Rhode Island, we will look at the White Horse Tavern in Newport, and in Massachusetts its Union Oyster House in Boston. Some of these places are almost as old as the country itself with plenty of history surrounding the buildings themselves and the area they are located in. It never ceases to amaze me what this area has to offer, we are truly in the epicenter of all things historical for our country and that is just one aspect of the region.

We will take a look at 5 amusement parks that no longer exist in the State of Connecticut. They are, in no particular order, Savin Rock Amusement Park in West Haven, Suburban Park in Unionville, Wildwood Park in Dayville, East Lyme's Golden Spur Park, and Roton Point Park located in Rowayton. All, at one time a thriving, well-patronized part of Connecticut's amusement park industry.
