  • A place to see history. Great site over looking the river. This old fort is made of earthworks. Great place to watch the fireworks over the river. 
  • While in New London we decided to see the battle field. Not the typical state park as there is no defined parking area. You can see it all from the street level. 
  • If you are interested in history, or the American Revolution, you will enjoy a visit here. The fort itself isn't gated so you can visit at any time. This is one of the best preserved forts from this t...  more »

  • Great little fort in Groton. Got some PokeStops and gyms. The museum building and monument is only open during the summer season.
  • Nice historical place that has good value. Walk through the fort and have a picnic in it. Walk through the museum and get a background of what happened at the battle. Climb up the Fort Griswold Monument and get spectacular views of the fort from above and New London Harbor. Great place to go, but has weird hours.
  • This place is pretty cool. Found it by chance looking for places to play pokemon go but the grounds and history grabbed my attention and I just enjoyed the area. A good place to go for a walk with your dog and learn a bit about the history of the place as you go.
  • Fort Griswold is a great place to walk around and absorb some history. It's right on the water and offers great views. Go for a walk and enjoy the sun, and history that you can't really find anywhere else.
  • An amazing and well kept Revolutionary War fort. The museum is small but it has many artifacts and recreated items from the period. A fun trip for anyone interested in the subject.
