Discover West Hartford, CT

Along the western edge of Connecticut's capital, Hartford, you can find the cheery suburban town of West Hartford. This rapidly growing community dates back centuries to 1636 when Reverend Thomas Hooker first delivered his congregation of followers to central Connecticut to found the Hartford Colony. The homesteading community was primarily agriculture-based, carving farmland from the rugged wilderness that was once home to the Wampanoag native people.

West Hartford was mostly a “streetcar suburb” of Hartford for most of its existence, although in recent years it has begun to eclipse the capital, with large waves of people moving to the fast-growing city. When you book an RV in West Hartford, you’ll find a peaceful community sandwiched between the Metacomet Ridge Mountains and the state capital. The town is absolutely steeped in history from the early days of the original colonies, well before the founding of the United States. Lovely scenery is never far from West Hartford and fun attractions are abundant.

Experience the Sites and Scenery

It might be unexpected, but Connecticut has some incredible scenery between its rocky coastline and the Taconic Mountains in the northwest corner of the state. Autumn is an especially appropriate time to rent an RV in West Hartford to witness the annual changing of the foliage on the trees. Talcott Mountain State Park is an ideal place to see the fiery orange, red, and yellow hues of the trees come to life, with epic views of the capital and of the Farmington Valley. The towering cliffs of Talcott Mountain are excellent to hike to, as are the waterfalls and hang-gliding launch points at the park. There are scenic reservoirs and ponds to fish in but the main feature at the park is the massive Heublein Tower. Penwood State Park is another place to check out when you rent an RV and it is practically right across the road from Talcott Mountain State Park’s parking lot. The park has paved bicycle paths circling the important reservoir that services the city. There are a few delightful hiking trails throughout the park and a fishing boardwalk with great views of the lake too.
