Avon is close to a range of colorful Hartford’s more popular attractions. Among the most interesting places to explore are the fascinating Wampanoag Country Club and the fantastic First Church of Christ. If time permits, be sure to also visit Ski Sundown and the New Britain Museum of American Art.
To better understand Hartford, head to one of its museums and theaters. In particular, you should make sure you check out the Museum of Connecticut History and the Connecticut Historical Society Museum. Enjoy seeing local and touring talent strut their stuff at Webster Theater, Hartford Stage and the Comcast Theatre.
Spend a few hours high in the stands of Rentschler Field, cheering on the Connecticut Huskies. To endear yourself with the locals, be sure to wear blue, white and red, the colors of the Connecticut Huskies.
When you’re ready to rest your weary head after a long day exploring the delights of Avon, check in to one of the many local bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks it’s hard to go past the Farmington Inn & Suites, the Radisson Hotel Hartford, and the Hilton Hartford.
