The Thames River Heritage Park is a collection of national and historic sites along both shores of the Thames that tell the stories that shaped our nation. The New London and Groton sites are linked by a hop-on hop-off water taxi. The Park is the first heritage Park in Connecticut and unlike a conventional park with fixed boundaries, the heritage park draws together historical and contemporary sites, communities, and institutions where visitors can experience the region’s many attractions, restaurants, galleries and shops. In addition to the water taxi, the Park offers regularly scheduled historic boat tours. The water taxi runs Memorial Day weekend through mid-September.
