Lesson #1479 - The States, Part II

It may be the third smallest state, but there's just as much regional diversity across Connecticut as everywhere else - the two southwest counties that serve as out-of-state suburbs for New Yorkers, the well-off western towns that many out-of-staters think are the entire state, and then the eastern half of cowtowns and woods (that to me is still the best and, hey, to some degree, still home). But take a ride on the highway (especially the Connecticut version of the hell that is I-95, west of New Haven) and it seems like everyone is just passing through. Stop and stay a while, huh? And if you swing through the eastern side, I'll show you the dog rock and the best pie in the country (time machine to access pie required).
