    Historic Connecticut Beaches

    Hello All!

    I'm taking a trip to CT and would appreciate any input.

    What do you all think about hunting historic beaches?

    Do these historic beaches look good to you? The water is shallow & there are no waves.

    Connecticut Historical Beaches

    Has anyone ever hunted these beaches?


    Thanks!

    If the beach(es) you plan on hunting is designated as an historical place, be careful that it is not off limits. check first. TTC

    TerryC, the description of historical at the site is...

    Historical Featuresare physical or cultural features
    that are no longer visible on the landscape. Examples: a dried up lake, a
    destroyed building, a hill leveled by mining. The term makes no reference to the
    age, use, or any other aspect of the feature. A ghost town, for example, is not
    a historical feature if it is still visible.

    It's basically something that use to be there not something legally historic.

    Most beaches in ct are private. You can hunt them but stay below high tige mark. Ct water is from long island sound, so there is almost no waves. I would try

    Old Saybrook, by Fort Saybrook at Saybrook point. There is also Bluff point state park in groton, there is a old home stead of a ship captin. I would also look at the CT

    DEEP laws on metal detecting, just google CT DEEP. Good luck
