And don’t miss the Shoppes at Buckland Hills and the Six Flags New England.
If you are travelling with kids, take them to the family attractions nearby. Spend a day with our furry, finned and feathered friends at the Forest Park Zoo in Springfield.
When it’s time escape the city, plan a trip to the nearby outdoor areas. Hit the trail and discover the well-used natural preserves for which this area is so renowned, such as Forest Park in Springfield.
Visitors with a passion for basketball, basketball or volleyball will love Harry A. Gampel Pavilion, Storrs, home of the Connecticut Huskies Men's and the popular Connecticut Huskies Women's. When the full-time siren sounds, retire with local fans to a nearby pub or bar to relive the match’s greatest moments.
