Sixt Tips

The Portland area is home to so much, from the historic capital city of Hartford, to the plethora of cultural offerings in Springfield and the amazing nature found in this part of New England. We recommend visiting popular attractions like the grounds and museums of Yale University and Springfield's Forest Park, one of the largest urban parks in the US. What might be lesser known are the culinary legacies of the region. Head to New Haven where both pizza and the hamburger are said have been first introduced to America. There is an even an established Connecticut Pizza Trail for you tour and taste what kind of pies the state has to offer.
