    Everyone knows about the big events like the (amazing!) Festival of Trees, but there's always something going on that's worth checking out. Sign up for their e-newsletter to stay informed.

    Only museum in Hartford C.T. Modern and Classical Art. Nice place to think and appreciate art. Also free for residents.

    The Wadsworth is an excellent place to spend and afternoon, or maybe two; if the paintings move you. Some of my favorite pieces count as outside art- and they seen to have more to say than the icons
