    We are PCSing to Groton this weekend. We will be moving in the the Nautilus III area. What can people tell me about the area (base, housing, jobs, attractions, etc.)?

    Well DB is stationed there, so I have been up there a couple times. There isn't a whole lot to do but the Nautilus is pretty neat and we go bowling a lot on base. We go see alot of movies too. There is a HUGE mall in Rhode Island that is amazing. Its about an hour drive from Groton. Thats all i can think of right now.

    I live in Hartford about 50 Mins from Groton. There isn't a whole lot to do in Groton but the state has a lot attractions. Is it just you and DH or do you have kids?

    Hm most of my attractions were family related from when I was growing up in area

    I'm not sure of adult type things in the area. But if you go into the NorthEast Locations section of the board there is a thread "CT G2G" it's full of women who live in the area.

    You wished you lived up here so you could come to our g2g's.

    The base is pretty run down and it isn't the most beautful town, but you are close to soooo much. You are right in between Boston and New York, and there is also Providence and Newport. And the outlet malls are only 20 mins south.
    Needs work.

    Those g2g's are more than we have here down in Albany, GA where no one gets together. Even the base can only manage 1 g2g for something every quarter. Which is not enough if you ask me!

    There are the casinos just about 15 min up 395, they have some interesting concerts at the wolf den for FREE, and some pretty typical casino type bars and such. a good time if you go with a group. New London has some really cool places, and some really ghetto places too. "south side bistro" on bank st. has the BEST quiche... and a beautiful deck for the summertime. as has been said.. NY and Prov are not far... neither is Newport RI. You can also get to block island in the summer on the high speed ferry. I'm just across the river, feel free to pm me.
