Storrs is situated in NE Connecticut, between New York City and Boston, MA. It is a charming small town of quiet and beautiful rural surroundings (Mansfield Hollow Lake, Horsebarn Hill, Coventry Lake, etc.) and lively student life at the University of Connecticut's main campus. The surroundings are particularly beautiful in October, when the leaves change color. Despite its apparent remoteness, it is only 40 minutes away from the state's capital, Hartford, 30 minutes from the beautiful port of New London, and a mere 10 minutes from Willimantic, the hometown of Eastern Connecticut State University.

While Storrs is easily accessible by car, public transportation is limited. See information about how to travel to Storrs here. There is a fixed route bus service between Storrs and Willimantic that runs about every hour between 6 am and 7 pm Monday to Friday. Saturday service is limited and there is no service on Sunday:

Unless you are coming by car, we recommend staying at the Nathan Hale Inn, located on the University of Connecticut campus. Nathan Hale Inn also offers food services. The following site offers a listing of local area restaurants (thanks to Takuro Tanaka):
