Connecticut is the fifth state of the USA. It is bordered by New York (state) on the west, Massachusetts on the north, Rhode Island on the east, and the Long Island Sound (an estuary) on the south.
Connecticut is one of the smaller states, but it nevertheless boasts a variation of landscape as well as a rich history and culture. Connecticut holds a few but crucial and important “firsts” in the country and in the world, including the first written constitution via the Fundamental Orders of 1638/1639. That’s why it’s nicknamed “The Constitution State.” It is also dubbed “The Nutmeg State” due to the old practice of Connecticut peddlers selling nutmeg. After you have read this gallery, you will realize how awesome Connecticut is — you may call it the “land of firsts” which this state should rightly deserve!
