This is the oldest running ferry in the U.S. It crosses the Connecticut River to Glastonbury. You can take your car over or bicycles. Or you can board the ferry on foot and just ride over and back. Runs seasonally only.

It's always a treat for guests visiting us in Rocky Hill to take a quick ride across the river on the Ferry. Always a friendly staff.

Whenever I visit Rocky Hill the ferry landing is my first stop and I usually ride it 2 or 3 time in a week.

This is a trip I take at least once a year. I often go 3-4 times a year. I love the trip and only wish it was a longer ride.
