Amazing Connecticut Design (with links)

  In this special feature, we look at some of the state’s most historic, groundbreaking and just plain eye-catching buildings, structures and homes. Though we consulted with architectural experts, we also used our own subjective judgment to compile this list of some of our favorite architectural sites in the state. Regrettably, we didn’t have room to include it all — sorry, Connecticut covered bridges and historic lighthouses. If we missed your favorite spot, let us know; we’re always looking to explore.

Editor's Note: Pleasant Surprises

We were racing against time.   My wife and I had just left Carlsbad Caverns, and were on our way to the White Sands National Monument. Now well into the desert Southwest portion of our cross-country drive from the East Coast in December 2014, we had to get there before sundown, when cars are no longer allowed to enter the world’s largest gypsum dunefield.   Terrain began to change as we entered Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico’s high plains.
