The capital of Connecticut, Hartford is one of the state’s oldest cities, boasting a number of great historical sites, museums, and recreation areas. Hartford’s sense of community combined with its thriving historic centers, make it a great place for an educational vacation in part of Connecticut’s most beautiful countryside.
In the heart of Hartford, Bushnell Park is the perfect location for dog walking, picnics, and going for jogs, as well as viewing the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch, which stands proudly in the park. Riverside Park is another beautiful public park, offering handmade sculptures to admire and an old bridge with scenic river views. Historians will be at home in Hartford, the city offering the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the Old State House, and Cedar Hill Cemetery. Visitors can enjoy a live play or musical at TheaterWorks, watch a hockey game at the XL Center, shop the Hartford Downtown Farmer’s Market, play a round of golf at the Goodwin Park Golf Course, or soak in the sights and sounds of the Charter Oak Cultural Center- a large community center that features a community garden, venue space, and plenty of places to relax.
Of all of the possible locations for vacation rentals in Hartford, the downtown area surrounding the Farmer’s Market is the most popular place for tourists to book a rental. Regardless of location, though, all of the rentals boast full kitchens and modern amenities such as high-speed internet and modern decor.
The best time to visit Hartford is spring. The spring season offers mild weather and less tourist traffic. October is another great time to visit, as it is the start of the fall season and offers beautiful fall foliage.
A few of the best events in Hartford include the Hartford International Jazz Festival, Riverfest, First Night Hartford, Hartford Festival of Light, and the Greater Hartford Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. The Festival of Light transforms Hartford into a picturesque winter wonderland, with more than 250,000 lights.
Families who are interested in taking an educational tour can embark on a day full of touring, at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center -offering interactive tours that cover family life and social justice issues from a different era-, and the Mark Twain House and Museum.
