“Hartford IS the rising Star****”
Reviewed March 6, 2006

Hartford is two hours away from Boston and New York. Hartford is going through a major face lift. From expanding our Main Public Library, Building the Convention Center and Marriott Hotel, Capital College, UCONN campus, Hartford 21 is an elegant 36-story tower situated at the corner of Asylum and Trumbull Streets, new condos etc. Hartford has the Wadsworth Museum being the oldest public museum in the US to having the first rose garden park in the US also. We have the Mark Twain and Harriett Beecher Stowe houses here. Hartford is where 4 times Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn is from! We have great restaurants and The Beautiful Bushnell Park right in downtown Hartford with a carousel open in the summer to our lovely Capital building with lots of history. On Pratt Street, there is a welcome center that you can check out and they can give you pamphlets of things to do in Hartford. GOOD LUCK and WELCOME to Hartford, CT! :)
