Westbrook was the birthplace of Captain David Bushnell, an American inventor who created the first submarine ever used in combat. It was called the Turtle because of its look in the water. He failed in his attempts to attack British ships which were blockading New York Harbor in the summer of 1776., but his ideas for submerging and raising his submarine are still used today. A full-sized model of the Turtleis on display at the U.S. Navy Submarine Force Library and Museum.
Westbrook is a charming community that offers beaches, gorgeous vistas, dining and entertainment, terrific shopping, and access to varied attractions. Located in the shoreline area of Connecticut, Westbrook overlooks Long Island Sound and contains the Salt Meadow Unit of the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge. The Refuge spans over nine hundred acres of the Connecticut shoreline, and provides shelter and protected habitats for many species of birds, some of which are endangered.
Offering sandy public and private beaches, salt air, and marine activities, Westbrook’s proximity to the Sound provides beautiful and relaxing opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Nearby attractions include Mystic Seaport, the Mystic Aquarium, and the Essex Steam Train, as well as shopping malls and outlet centers. There truly is something for everyone in Westbrook!
