Niantic Boardwalk

Enjoy the ocean view and meet friendly people while getting some exercise on the 1 mile boardwalk. Don't forget to spend some time on the beach sea glassing.

Gumdrops and Lollipops Candy Shop

There are lots of great restaurants in town. My favorite is Gumdrops and Lollipops. My grandson loves this place. Children's meals are served in a pail - so they are ready for the beach. There's plenty of candy and sweets to choose from also.

Smoochie Bird Gift Shop

There is also great shopping in town. Smoochie Bird just opened and it is one of my favorite shops. Great assortment of gifts and jewelry.

The Niantic Farmers Market

I do all my fresh fruit and vegetable shopping all in one place. The market also has vendors that sell local meats and seafood.

The Children's Museum of Southeastern Connecticut

A hands on museum that has something for all age children. The outdoor playspace is awesome. I have as much fun as my grandson.

Bruce and Gail Barton are owners of Sea Glass Designs. They spend the winter months living aboard our boat in the northern Bahamas collecting rare sea glass shards. The area is rich in beautiful old sea glass as a result of numerous shipwrecks on the reefs during the early 1800’s. Their jewelry features old and very rare pieces of sea glass and pottery. All of their jewelry is handcrafted and made with high quality materials and authentic sea glass.
