If you desire a rural escape with nearby urban appeal, grab a flight from Tampa to Bradley International Airport in Connecticut. Windsor Locks boasts many diversions for leisure and business visitors, thanks to its proximity to Hartford. Whether you're horseback riding through the Pioneer Valley or perusing The Shoppes at Buckland Hills, northern Connecticut is a worthwhile destination.
To begin with, making a stop at the New England Air Museum is recommended. Next, enjoy a slice of classic countryside by cycling the Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail. Once you've gotten your bearings, make a day trip to Six Flags New England in Springfield, or the Mark Twain House in Hartford.
Though Bradley International Airport is right on the main thoroughfare, a good rental car is necessary to explore the greater area. I-91 is easily accessible from the airport via Connecticut Route 20. From there, you can head into Hartford for a Wolf Pack game at the XL Center, or a show at Hartford Stage.
Flying from Tampa International Airport (TPA) to Bradley International Airport (BDL) takes about three hours. Most hotels are located off Ella Grasso Turnpike across from the airport's rental car offices. Within an hour's drive, you'll find top-notch attractions like the Connecticut Science Center and Talcott Mountain State Park.
