Things To Do in Hartford, CT
Going to a performance at the Bushnell is like escaping into a world where the focus is on the spotlighted stage and the stellar performances that take place there. The venue has long been Connecticut's premiere performing arts center, and the impressive number of productions that are scheduled throughout the year attest to that fact. So if you and your significant other love dressing up and enjoying a romantic date night filled with unforgettable performances, don't be late for the show at the Bushnell!
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.
