Bordering Rhode Island to the east is the town of Stonington, the only Connecticut community that faces the Atlantic Ocean. Many companies have moved Stonington for its outstanding services, highly skilled labor force, and enviable lifestyle. New residents discover an increasingly rare and attractive blend of seaside and semi-rural locations for family roots. Stonington features many seacoast attractions in Mystic and Old Mystic as well as Pawcatuck and Wequetequock villages.
The North Stonington area includes Groton Long Point and Stonington boroughs. The town, named for the stony character of the hillsides, includes Clarks Falls, Laurel Glen and Pendleton Hill. Agriculture remains the primary industry in North Stonington.
