Transporting your vehicle to or from Connecticut

Connecticut is a state of many firsts: the first color television in 1954, the first American sewing machine in 1846, the first telephone book in 1878 (listing only 50 individuals and businesses on a single piece of cardboard) and even the first set speed limit in 1901—at a whopping 12 miles per hour.

The state draws in millions of tourists each year to visit its various historical sites, acclaimed academic institutions and nautical attractions. Assuming you don’t want to travel around the state at 12 miles per hour (Don’t worry, the speed limit has since been changed.), bring your own vehicle along as a reliable form of transportation.

These factors may impact the type of transport, any special accommodations needed and how much it will cost you. Be prepared with this information when you begin researching.
