Hartford has a lot going on. Being the capital of Connecticut is just one of the feathers in its cap. It's home to the Wadsworth Atheneum, America's oldest public art museum as well as Bushnell Park, the oldest public park in the nation. Hartford County is a popular place to live, work and raise a family. There are great schools, shopping, restaurants and neighborhoods to live in. West Hartford has even been ranked one of the best places to live, raise a family (and also retire) in the country by numerous publications.
