Outdoor Summer Activities in Branford

When it comes to fun outdoor activities, Branford is the place to be! In the summer, it’s easy to want to escape the summer heat and stay inside with the air conditioning. However, when you live in a town like Branford, staying inside is not an option. This charming coastal town is home to beautiful beaches, scenic hiking trails, unique geographic features and clear, open waters for residents to visit and enjoy all summer long.

Take a Thimble Islands Cruise

Looking for a relaxing way to spend the afternoon? Hop aboard the Sea Mist and join Thimble Islands Cruise for a 45-minute narrated tour of the Thimble Islands. This family-owned business has been giving boat tours for nearly 60 years and providing visitors and residents alike with breathtaking views of the Branford coast. If you get thirsty while on board, the cruise also has a bar on deck serving refreshing beverages for passengers to enjoy.

Enjoy Paddle Sports

For those wanting to add a bit of action to their summer day, try paddle sports! Summer is the perfect time for being in the water and enjoying the Connecticut sun, and there’s no better way to enjoy the ocean air than from a kayak or paddle boat. Branford River Paddlesports offers paddle board and kayak rental, as well as two- or three-hour tours of the Branford coast and its archipelago of islands.

Walk the Branford Trails

Take a break from the water and hit up the trails. While Branford is known for its coast, the town is also host to numerous walking trails that allow for fresh air, beautiful scenic views and several historic sites. The Branford Trail, the most popular walking and hiking spot in the city, boasts 25 miles of partially paved trail that loops the perimeter of town. The trail is divided into eight different segments, making it easily accessible for all Branford residents.
