Chester Airport - Taxi Ride to Colonial Essex
This is a nice little airport known for a nice crosswind as well. There are quite a few bi-planes and older airplanes stationed at Chester. The FBO is small but helpful. It is a good idea to call ahead and request a taxi for your arrival. It is a 20 dollar cab ride into Essex, but the small colonial town is worth the trip. There is the Griswold inn which is one of the oldest running Inn's in the nation a nice place to stay and eat. There are several other boutiques and restaurants in the area and the Connecticut River Museum which are sure to keep you occupied. There is also a Steam Train and Ferry Tour which I have read great reviews about.
