What to do and see in Bridgeport?
- Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo, a wonderful place to visit - alone or with your family. Spend an hour or the whole day and see more than 300 animals representing primarily North and South American species, and learn about endangered species such as the Amur (Siberian) tiger, Andean condor, Ocelot, Red wolf, Andean (spectacled) bear, Maned wolf, and Golden lion tamarin.
- Discovery Museum, featuring delights that range from three floors of hands-on fun with science to daily Planetarium shows, being considered one of Bridgeport's most popular attractions.
- Housatonic Community College's Museum of Art, home to one of the most significant collections of any two-year college in the country, including works by master artists such as Rodin, Picasso, Matisse, Miro and Chagall. Both art enthusiasts and casual observers have the rare opportunity to engage daily with original works of art and artifacts on continuous display throughout the College and campus grounds.
- Captain's Cove Seaport, which has grown from a vacant lot and a handful of slips to one of Connecticut's premier tourist attractions and seaport complexes. Located on Historic Black Rock Harbor, Captain's Cove is an active maritime and amusement center, perfect for a family day out on a hot summer day.
The relatively new Annual Downtown Renaissance Fair has quickly turned into one of Bridgeport's most popular annual events. This year, the celebration is scheduled on August 26, and the date will mark its 2nd edition.
