It was here that he wrote some of his most popular works, including "Tom Sawyer" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." If you want to see where bills go to become law, visit the Connecticut State Capitol in downtown Hartford. After you take a tour, you can also see the state Senate and House in session. Other things to do in the city include visiting the Wadsworth Atheneum and walking through Wickham Park to see the peacocks and vast open spaces.

If you're in Hartford during the beginning of July, check out Riverfest, at the Mortensen Riverfront Plaza. Held just after the Fourth of July, the festival is a jovial place to experience local food and entertainment. At the end of the night, you’ll “ooh” and “ahh” under the fireworks display.
