Things To Do in Hartford, CT
It isn't uncommon to hear about garden shows. They seem to happen in nearly every city in the country. However, the one Connecticut Flower & Garden Show has built up a solid reputation as one of the most prestigious shows of its kind. Visitors are treated to the visual allure of several breathtaking gardens that are designed by some of Connecticut's most respected horticulturalists. The gardens are presented over 3 acres and include not only floral presentations but several exhibits that educate visitors about new gardening products and services. This popular festival is usually held every February.
Even if you've read Huckleberry Finn or Tom Sawyer several times, you still may not really know much about the man who created these timeless works of American literature. A visit to Hartford's Mark Twain House & Museum will change all that in a truly dramatic fashion. The historic home has been meticulously preserved and treats visitors to the sight of various personal items that belonged to Twain, who made his home here before and after he met with his staggering success. Among the most striking pieces at this house museum are his writing desk, eyeglasses and other personal curiosities, and various first editions of his most famous books.
