Whether you're flying into Hartford's Bradley International Airport (BDL) for business or pleasure, Connecticut's capital offers plenty to do. Since being founded in 1633 as a trading post on the Connecticut River, Hartford has evolved into the Insurance Capital of the World, and attracted visitors with its abundant historical treasures. Here, you'll find the Connecticut Science Center, Old State House, Governor's Residence, Bushnell Park and Wadsworth Atheneum; America's oldest public art museum.
While the Dash Shuttle does provide public transportation along the Riverfront to the Arts and Entertainment District, a rental car is highly suggested. You can easily navigate through Hartford on Highway 6, or Main Street to find your way to the historic homes of Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Noah Webster and Butler McCook.
Visit the observation deck of Travelers Tower for a bird's eye view of the Hartford Skyline. If you're traveling in mid-to-late June, you just might catch the Elizabeth Park rose gardens in full bloom.
From Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), you'll land in Hartford within just two hours. Before hopping on the shuttle towards the rental car center, don't forget to stop by the New England Air Museum right in BDL. Then, take Schoephoester Road to Interstate 91 South, and head towards your adventure in downtown Hartford.
