Description: When you are touring Connecticut you might just run into Gov. Dan Mallory and if you are a Democrat, he just might invite you to a brisk game of squash. What a great way to lose weight in one day. After lunch, for a delicious treat you will be served their state chocolate known world wide as - Dark Chocolate Chocolate Mousse. Not related to that ugly moose of Alaska don’t tell Sarah Palin. She might write another book. No No!
"Yankee Doodle," an all-American favorite, is the state song of the Constitution State - the first state in the New World to have a written constitution. Named Quinnechtukgut by the Indians - which means "Beside the long tidal river" - we now know that "river" as Long Island Sound. This state of great forests, plains, beaches, and bays is home to the world's first atomic submarine, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and hockey's Hartford Whalers. Connecticut has Yankee spirit and Yankee pride!
