What do you enjoy most about Greater Hartford?
Hartford and surrounding towns offer a rich variety of cultural experiences, with easy access to travel opportunities in the region and beyond. Years ago, while in college, a classmate remarked about all that Hartford offers, something I remembered when our family relocated to the Hartford area. I have not been disappointed!
