JoAnn;
 
Gillette Castle in East Haddam, CT is a nice place to visit.  The castle itself doesn't open until Memorial Day but the grounds are open year round.  The grounds can be reached by road or a $3 per vehicle ferry ride across the Connecticut River.  East Haddam also has the Goodspeed Opera House and the swing bridge which offer photo opportunities.  The Essex Railroad is nearby and offers a rail and riverboat ride.
 
Here are a few snapshots I took yesterday of the castle and grounds:
