Itinerary

New York - Hartford - Talcott Mountain State Park - New York

We will first head to the state capital of Connecticut, Hartford, to visit Mark Twain’s house. Twain’s mansion is Tiffany decorated and adorned with holiday trinkets and ornaments just like it was when Twain lived there. Next, we will go to Bushnell Park in downtown Hartford for Maple Foliage viewing. Founded in 1860, Bushnell was the first municipal park in the nation to be conceived, built, and paid for by citizens. Located at the core of the City of Hartford, visitors can gain a magnificent visual point for the city. We will be able to see the most famous landmarks of this historic city such as Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Arch, Connecticut State Capitol, Corning Fountain, Bushnell Park Carousel, Performance Pavilion, and Park River.

Furthermore, we will visit Talcott Mountain State Park, one of the top spots for foliage viewing in Connecticut. This state park features a 165-foot historic tower (Heublein Tower) that offers a panoramic view of the Talcott Mountain and Hartford, especially in the fall. Gilbert Heublein, a hotel, food and beverage magnate who was known for producing A1 Steak Sauce and Smirnoff vodka, built this tower in 1914 as a family resort for the Heubleins and their guests. The Hartford Times later on acquired the tower after Gilbert Heublein's death and they host parties regularly with famous guests and celebrities. It was in here that Dwight D. Eisenhower was asked to run for President of the United States in the 1952 election.

Although a 1.25-mile easy hike is required to get to the tower and an additional 120 steps will be needed to get to the top of the tower, but it's totally worth the commanding view at the end.

Tips:
The return time is at around 8:00pm but it may depend on traffic and weather conditions.
