10 Fall Experiences You Just Can’t Have in the City

The best parts of fall are simply unavailable in the city; no hills rolling with color, no apple orchards or pumpkin patches, and certainly no historic cider mills. Luckily, Connecticut has all of these and more, and it’s just a brief drive away. This short list is packed with everything from pumpkin picking to hot cider and corn mazes.

Locals Love: Hartford

Connecticut’s capital city is located in the center of the state, where I-84 and I-91 meet. But it’s certainly not a city you’ll want to drive by. It’s home to America’s oldest continuously operating art museum and America’s #1 favorite minor league ballpark (two years in a row!) We asked some locals in the mayor’s office for their favorite Hartford haunts and were not disappointed.
