History Museum
“Built in 1796, the original seat of the state legislature is now a historical landmark & museum. The old pillory stocks seem a little surreal, make you feel like you're actually travelling back in time. Kids exhibits are wonderful, especially in the activities room, downstairs gallery, CT Kid Governor's office, and museum of oddities. Kids and adults will enjoy a visit here.”

History Museum
“The Museum of Connecticut History is located in the meticulously restored and historic 1910 building that houses the State Library and Supreme Court. Its focus is on the state’s governmental, industrial, and military history, which it showcases through a range of permanent and temporary exhibits. The exhibits follow the State’s growth and development and the part it played in the development of the United States. The visit to the museum starts at Memorial Hall with a display of the portraits of former Connecticut Governors. The Hall also contains display boxes with important historical documents such as the State's original Royal Charter from 1662. ”

“Located on Front Street in downtown Hartford, Nixs Hartford is spacious, opulent, and lively. Nixs is the place in Hartford to visit for after-work cocktails or to hang out with friends for a fun-filled evening, as they have a great DJ playing most days. Everything revolves around their enormous bar and comfortable lounge booths. The restaurant specializes in small plates of local specialties, which in Hartford means superb fresh oysters, crabs, shrimp, and lobsters. Chef Al Soto knows exactly what to do with these excellent seafood options, and with his skilled touch and a few unexpected ingredients and combinations, he manages to produce delightful surprises. ”

“Firebox takes their farm-to-table philosophy seriously. They work with a large number of local farms and food producers, shaping their menu around what is available seasonally and grown locally. Add to that the expert skills and fruitful imagination of Chef Ed Jones, and the results are delightful small plates bursting with flavors. The restaurant is warm and inviting with exposed brick walls and original beams on the ceiling. Their policy of working with local talent extends to the local artists who have the opportunity to show their art on the restaurant’s walls. Firebox’s brunch has received rave reviews, and you will see why after you try their eggs Benedict. ”

“This is a fun little pub with a warm and dim underground feel. A good beer selection and late night bites, including their infamous soft pretzels. They also have live music every Wednesday night! (Also one of my favorite brunch spots for Saturday or Sunday mornings). Only a 10 minute walk or 3 minute drive away.”

“Visiting the Connecticut Historical Society museum, library, and the Edgar F. Waterman Research Center is a great way to learn more about Connecticut and its history, people, and culture. The Society, established in 1825, is located in a lovely 1928 Colonial Revival building that was formerly a luxury home. It now contains over 4 million diverse items in the areas of textiles, furniture, clothing, manuscripts, diaries, prints, photos, tavern signs, children’s books, and various tools. There are several permanent exhibitions on display, and the most important one is a comprehensive overview of more than 400 years of the history of Connecticut. The exhibition displays over 500 historic images”
