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.
