A Very Nice Small City and an Excellent County - 7/30/2018
I grew up in West Hartford....and the City of Hartford and Hartford County is a lovely place to live. Easy access to everything you will ever need. The City is completely under-rated and a bargain to live in when you consider places like Tennessee and yes, Florida. It's an easy place to live. Everything is walkable or a very quick drive. In 45 minutes you can be at the beach or the mountains, depending upon your interest.

We retired to Florida from Hartford. After a year, we sold our house in FL and are moving back to Hartford. Florida is excessively hot, humid, full of strip malls and rude/very aggressive drivers. The price of real estate if FL has skyrocketed and it is simply not worth it. The City of Hartford is very easy to work in and there has been a ton of housing construction over the past 5 years. The Mark Twain House is amazing, along with the Harriet Beecher Stowe House. The Wadsworth Atheneum (the oldest public art museum in the country) is wonderful, Read More

Urban Blight With Few Amenities - 3/14/2017
I moved to Hartford after living in Chicago, and prior to moving on to Boston.

Hartford's biggest selling point is that it is 2 hours away from all of the places that you'd rather be. Hartford has all of the problems of major cities, but it has few advantages. The crime rate is high, the art scene is thin, music is dismal. and restaurants are blah.  Read More

Living Downtown - 1/6/2011
We recently moved here and chose to live downtown. It's a recovering downtown. We're enjoying access to many theaters, museums, parks, great restaurants and other resources. Hartford downtown has the chicken-n-egg problem of needing more residents to support downtown businesses and more downtown businesses that would attract more residents. We lack grocery stores and affordable retail stores. Hartford is trying and people seem to be responding.  Read More

Hartford: city with nothing in it - 12/27/2007
I got transferred to Hartford thinking it was a small-moderately sized city. This city is dead. There is very little nightlife. People have, for the most part, flocked to the suburbs. There is one museum. This is not the city to live in if you want night life or city Read More
