Staycation Postcards: Captain’s Cove Seaport in Connecticut

A staycation or road trip is the best ways to travel right now.  Last week I made my way over to a great local spot in Connecticut called Captain’s Cove Seaport. My dad used to take me there a lot when I was younger. I even went to school not far from there. It’s always the perfect “end of summer” place to go.

Captain’s Cove Seaport is located in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Explore the little shops located in what look like tiny houses. There’s also a restaurant with lots of outdoor seating. Many people also keep their boats there and go sailing and boating. A great staycation includes learning new skills. Learn sailing skills at Sailaway Sailing School (below). Captain’s cove is a great summer spot and it stays open I believe until around November. Don’t quote me on that.

The shops (little houses) sell various items. What’s a staycation without buying gifts, collectibles, and jewelry? Then stop at the ice cream shop for a treat.

It’s also pretty good for social distancing. The day that I went I might have seen 10 people total the whole time I was there. It was a weekday in the afternoon, to give you an idea of when I went. There are lots of signs to remind you to social distance, and the fact that it is very wide open gives you plenty of room to spread out.

It’s great for families because the shops sell a wide variety of items. Then you can get a bite to eat and watch the sunset. It’s just a nice relaxing summer destination.

  1. As a Bridgeport resident, I enjoy going there. It is nearby, and really, a breath of fresh air. Thanks Kelcy for sharing with others.

  2. This bought back nice memories when I visited my family in Bridgeport a few years ago. Nice for a day on the water … social distancing… with your family.

    Thanks for the memories.. Kelcy
