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.
