Southeastern Connecticut as the name suggests is located in the southeastern corner of the state.  It is also often referred to as Greater New London. Historically the region has been dependent on traditional New England economic activities such as fishing, whaling, oystering and the defense industry. In present day the area remains the primary home of the states fishing and shell fish activity, but has since diversified its economic base to include tourism and gambling.

The area is home to the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London and The United States Navy Base in Groton where the first nuclear submarine was launched in 1954. Other notable attractions include Mystic Seaport, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casinos.
