Regarding Nation's Oldest Ferry. The Rocky Hill - Glastonbury Ferry makes countless trips across the Connecticut River each day from May 1 to October 31 during daylight hours. The short but enjoyable ride costs $3.00 per car and $1.00 for pedestrians and bicyclists. The state is looking to close the ferry in August, 2011 because of budget cuts.
