“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I reseached Route 169 prior to our trip out east and felt we had to check it out. What a disappointment to say the least. It was a typical 2 lane road like any other. It was a beautiful, sunny fall day which would have been perfect if there was anything special along the way. It was nice and serene but nothing special to see. We live in flat old Illinois and my drive to & from work is more scenic.
We drove from Newport RI to Griswold CT the night before specifically to take this route. The nice lady at the hotel recommended that we check out Mystic CT for the tall ships that were there. I guess we should have headed south and took her advice.

“Ok, but berkshires and New Hampshire are better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

We live in Ct. and these towns are small, not much to do or see, we liked Pomfret, but Woodstock is not worth the stop at 4:00 you can't even get a cup of coffee we went to an English Tea shop and they were closing for a party at 3:45 and rude.. so I would not expect too much, the trees are great the towns don't offer much they talk about big town greens with beautiful houses, if you blink you could miss them.. I won't go again...
