Hartford, Connecticut: Leafy Parks and Historical Museums in State Capital
Hartford inspired Connecticut's nickname, "The Constitution State," after early settlers founded the town in 1636 and drafted what they claimed was the world's first written constitution. Nearly 400 years later, a lavish, gold-domed Capitol Building gleams as the centerpiece of downtown.
Like most New England cities, Hartford is chock full of historical sites. You can tour the ornate Victorian home where Mark Twain and his family lived for many years, including during the period when the author wrote The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The city's oldest historical site is the Ancient Burying Ground, where some of the gravestones date back to the mid-17th century.
At Elizabeth Park, nature trails will take you through one of the oldest public rose gardens in the country. Art lovers will want to carve out some time in the itinerary for Wadsworth Atheneum, which houses contemporary European and American art, as well as special collections of Hudson River School paintings and Colt firearms.
