Sixt Tips

Hartford's extensive selection of art galleries and museums will keep you busy during your stay. The Wadsworth Athenaeum alone has the largest collection of art in the nation, housed in an amazing gothic revival building with over 30 galleries. Possibly one of America's most important writers, Samuel Langhorne Clemens better known by his pen name Mark Twain, had one of his most prolific periods in Hartford. His home now operates as a museum that along with interesting insight into Twain's life, is also remarkable for its red brick architecture and stunning interiors.

Hartford is also famous for its excellent parks, many of which are located on the magnificent Connecticut River next to downtown Hartford. Further east is the magnificent Elizabeth Park Rose Gardens with over 15,000 rose bushes and live concerts during the summer months. Bushnell Park is also a stunning place to relax and is famous for its Monday night free Jazz concerts.

Sightseeing Destinations

With Hartford being bang in the middle of the state there are many excellent day trips to be had to the Connecticut shoreline just to the south. The town of Mystic (and yes, just like the film, there really is a pizzeria called Mystic Pizza) is great for a coastal escape with its excellent Mystic Seaport, an amazing maritime museum devoted to America's seafaring traditions.

  • Distance from Hartford to Mystic via CT-2 E: 60 miles, about 1 hour

For outdoor enthusiasts there are plenty of excellent national parks, we love the Nepaug State Forest for its forest hike trails and scenic views of the Nepaug Valley and Yellow Mountain. There are also opportunities for fishing, biking and cross-country skiing in the winter months.

  • Distance from Hartford to Nepaug State Forest via US-44 W: 17 miles, about 35 minutes

Top destinations near Hartford

Hartford is not far from two of America's most exciting metropolises, New York City and Boston. Thanks to Interstate 91 and 95, Hartford is ideally placed to reach New York City in just three hours of driving to the south. The drive northwest to Boston takes about two hours but is not particularly scenic. Directly north you could take a road trip to Springfield, Massachusetts on I-91.
