3 Can’t-Miss Spots in Hartford, Connecticut
Connecticut may be one of the smaller states in the United States, but it’s definitely worth the visit! It has plenty of history, beautiful landscapes, and fun family activities to keep you busy year-round. If you’re planning a trip to Connecticut soon, here are some of the places you simply can’t miss while you’re there!
1) The Best Museums
The CT Science Center provides exhibits and programs that make up Connecticut’s leading science learning destination. This museum is for everyone. It includes views. You can see things you have never seen before, but they are all around us. You can learn about how things work, from dinosaurs to airplanes to steam engines. You can also get hands on with a lot of fun interactive activities like building a robot or racing your own virtual car. If you want to go somewhere where you can see something new every time you visit, then I recommend going here first!
2) The Best Parks
Elizabeth Park is on the national register of historic places. Enjoy the formal gardens, green spaces, picnic areas, and recreational facilities in Elizabeth Park. Also, at various times throughout the year, the Elizabeth Park Conservancy presents special events, outdoor concerts, tours, lectures and garden workshops in the Park—many of them free to the public. If you’re a fan of golf, visit Wintonbury Hills Golf Course, an 18-hole championship course located just north of Hartford. You can enjoy a game while taking in some spectacular views from above Hartford’s skyline.
3) The Most Intimate Cruises In 2004, Mystique entered another chapter in her log, embarking on a course to the Connecticut River and becoming the flagship of Lady Katharine Cruises. Since then, she’s managed hundreds of weddings, family reunions, proms, fundraisers, milestone celebrations, and even countless corporate events and cocktail parties. Besides two cruises per day in the Spring, Summer, and Fall, she offers trips with her sister ship, Spirit of Hartford II. Both boats are available for private charters throughout their operating season, which runs from April through October. A variety of menu options are available for groups ranging from 20 to 200 guests.
