And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at The Mark Twain House & Museum, explore the world behind art at Hill-Stead Museum, make a trip to Connecticut Fallen Firefighters Memorial, and get a sense of history and politics at Connecticut State Capitol.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, use the Hartford planner .
