Hartford — 7 nights

Hartford is the capital of the U.S. state of Connecticut.

And it doesn't end there: explore the galleries of The Mark Twain House & Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Bushnell Park, work some fitness into your day at Elizabeth Park, and explore the world behind art at New Britain Museum of American Art.
