Short ride to cross over to Glastonbury from rocky hill over the CT river. Each trip cost 5$ for car, kids and dogs love it and you save time. Closed in winter for couple of months.

I have memories of this ferry since I was a kid and I still love taking a ride. My puppy Chloe loves the ferry and the drive into Glastonbury with all the farmers markets close by. This tiny treasure brings everyone together.
