Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden

One of the most unique public spaces in the country, the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden has five different statues and sculptures of some of Dr Seuss' most beloved characters. A ten-foot tall Horton, plus the Lorax, Yertle the Turtle and the Cat in the Hat are some of the cartoon creatures that come to life in this playful garden. The largest sculpture is an enormous replica of Oh, the Places You'll Go!, and there is also a statue of Dr. Seuss sitting at his writing desk. Free and open daily, the garden is a great stop for anyone and everyone who loves Dr. Seuss.

Playhouse On Park

In 2009, the Playhouse Theatre Group decided to open the doors and present some of the best classic plays and other performance pieces on stage. From comedy and children's shows to Othello and modern, interpretive dance, there is something for all tastes. Tickets are relatively inexpensive and the organization constantly provides outreach programs to foment a love for the arts in the greater Hartford region.

New England Civil War Museum

The New England Civil War Museum in Rockville, Connecticut is located northeast of Hartford and is a wonderful small, volunteer-run museum dedicated to the role of New England and its inhabitants during the Civil War. It is housed inside of a lovely brick structure (the Memorial Building) built in 1890 to honor veteran Union soldiers. The museum houses three different collections: the Hirst Brothers Collection of the 14th Connecticut Infantry, the Weston Collection of the 4th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry and the Thomas F. Burpee Collection of the 21st Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. Visitors can check out the exhibits on the second and fourth Sunday of the month.

Sea Tea Improv

This theater in downtown Hartford is where you come and see freestyle performances that take the word improv to a new level. From spoken-word sessions with the audience to choreographed miming and situational comedy, the Sea Tea group always provides a laugh or two. Many of their members have learned from the best at renowned comedy institutions such as Second City, Groundlings and the Upright Citizens Brigade.

Real Art Ways Theatre

Education, events, film, dance and much more is the entertainment provided at Real Ways. The center is housed in an old typewriter factory and it functions as a multi-purpose venue which hosts theatrical productions, concerts, movies and art installations throughout the year. It's no wonder Real Art Ways is considered one of the best places to catch a show in Hartford.

Nomad's Adventure Quest

A place brimming with excitement, Nomad's Adventure Quest is where you should be for a day of fun with the family. Featuring numerous video games, arcades, pool tables and bowling alleys, there is much to indulge in at this great venue. Challenge your friends to virtual race, shoot some hoops at the arcade basketball and play a round or two of pool. Nomads also features exclusive games such as laser tag, bumper cars, mini golf and indoor rock climbing. When all these games make you hungry head to the restaurant on site and feast on a scrumptious meal.
