What to See and Do in Hartford

Spend time at the former residence of Samuel Clemens, more famously known as Mark Twain. One of his most famous works, "Tom Sawyer," was written in this Gothic-style mansion, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In the midst of Hartford, you'll find a local outdoor favourite, Bushnell Park. Ride the Victorianesque antique carousel, take in a show at the outdoor theatre or explore the onsite war memorials. Head for Elizabeth Park, another city treasure that's been growing roses since 1904. For a closer look at this capital city's history, tour the Old State House, circa 1796, which was once the legislature building but is now a museum. The current Connecticut State Capitol and surrounding grounds are also worth a look. If you are visiting in the fall, take a drive and do some "leaf peeping." Local trees are awash in reds, golds and oranges, adding a definitive splash to the local landscape.
