We stayed in the downtown area of this capital city. It is considered the insurance capital of the world and when you walk around and see the number of companies here you will see why.

I love to go to the restaurants and the theater there. Great shows, great food. I also like to take my kid to the science center. As far as ambiance goes though, not much for a city in the East.

Hartford overall was certainly not a place I would pick to live in again. After going to school here for four years, I got my taste of the local culture and situation, which left much to be desired. It's certainly low-income, which is something to be wary of. But Hartford does still have a significant amount of gems from the time when it was New England's Rising Star such as Harriet Beecher Stowe's house, Mark Twain's House and The Wadsworth.
Hartford is a little lacking for things to do outside of the Mark Twain House and Hartford, it's true. It's a great bar town though, which is often overlooked. City Steam Brewery is part improv comedy, part four-foot tall pitchers of home-brewed beer. The Russian Lady is open again with its multiple floors of debauchery. Even tony West Hartford has chill hangout spots in Barcelona and the Half Door. Now if only someone would by the Whalers back from Carolina...
