Setting — Located at the head of the Thames River, 12 miles from the New London Ledge Light, The Marina at American Wharf is at the heart of the successful Norwich Harbor waterfront redevelopment plan. The multi-million dollar marina's classic, Jeffersonian-influenced architecture and grounds -- with its carefully tended flower borders, large swaths of perfect grass, and nicely maintained docks -- make this facility worth the trip.

Marina Notes — * Weekends $2.75/ft. Holidays $3.25/ft. Built in 1987. Good heads & showers. Wonderful pool. Courtesy van to casino, shopping, hotels. Casino package - $75 plus dockage (min 2-nights): round trip trans. to Foxwoods, Match Play & Foxwood buffet coupons, cont. breakfast for 2, $50 gift certificate for Americus Restaurant, and electricity. The onsite, very pretty and petite all-glass Americus On the Wharf Restaurant offers inside/outside casual fine dining, 7 days, late Apr-early Nov. Extensive list of specials 2pm-midnight; $9.95 buffet lunch from 11:30am-2:30pm. Light menu also available for L/D.

Notable — The picture-perfect New England town of Norwich sits at the confluence of the Thames, Yantic and Shetucket Rivers and has an abundance of 18th & 19thC structures (pick up walking tour brochure from the Tourist Office). Across the channel is Putts Up Dock, an unusual and wild 19-hole miniature golf course. The marina nearest to Foxwoods (800-FOXWOODS) and Mohegan Sun (888-226-7711) Casinos, and also to the truly amazing Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center.
