About Connecticut Tours

The Connecticut River gives the state its name. Derived from the Mohegan Indian mouthful quinnehtukqut, which means ‘place of the long river.’

Connecticut’s motto is: Qui Transtulit Sustiet which means “He Who Transplanted Still Sustains.”

Connecticut is home to the oldest U.S. newspaper still being published known as The Hartford Courant, initially established in 1764. 

Connecticut is also home to the first hamburger (1895), Polaroid camera (1934), helicopter (1939). And colour television (1948). 

Connecticut was the first to pass an automobile law, setting the speed limit to 20 Km per hour.
