Connecticut: Images of the Constitution State (32 photos)

Connecticut is the third smallest state in the Union, by area, and has the fourth highest population density. This New England state has many harbor towns on its southern coastline along Long Island Sound, as well as industrial cities and rural towns and villages further inland. Here are a few glimpses of the landscape of Connecticut and some of the animals and people calling it home.
