New London is a seaside city on the Atlantic coast of Connecticut. Located nearby Norwich and Colchester, New London is almost equidistant from the major metropolitan hubs of New York City and Boston. New London is a city rich with history: Once a thriving whaling port, both downtown and residential areas boast traditional 19th century New England architecture in their homes for rent. The city also hosts several colleges, private schools and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy - another sign of its roots as an historic seaport town.
