Hartford Skyline at Night

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.
