Welcome to Connecticut?

First impressions are lasting. So, why do the “Connecticut Welcomes You” signs look so bad?

This one here is in Voluntown welcoming drivers from Rhode Island.

Connecticut Welcomes You sign

It would be nice if they said “Constitution State” instead of “We’re Full of Surprises.” Those four words make up a long, defunct slogan that, from what I understand, didn’t go over well.

Maybe the signs should say “Historic Connecticut.” Whatever the sign says, they should look better than this one. The signs on the Merritt Parkway are attractive and unique, so why not use them elsewhere?

Any ideas? Leave a comment and remember to sign your hometown!

  1. I think the sign should be have the state seal. or sub or a big sail boat with the mystic seaport theme. for a good saying would be
    Welcome to Connecticut home of the_______?? that would make the state more inviting.

  2. As far as what to call our state maybe we can call it the “Happening State”.
