Hartford to New York bus and train info:
Usually people rush to New York City. For the people who already live there and those who love to visit the lights, the sights and the hustle are addictive. Every so often, however, another kind of city entices the spirit.
Hartford, Connecticut is seventh largest city in New England and home to The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the first public art institution in the United States (for all the art aficionados out there).
Megabus, Greyhound Bus and Peter Pan Bus all provide bus service between these two cities for reasonable fares. The trip by bus between New York, NY, 10th Ave and Hartford, CT, Columbus Blvd is approximately 104 miles or 2 hours and 30 minutes.
In Hartford, you can visit the home of famous author, Mark Twain, see an unknown or classical play at the award-winning Hartford Stage Company or try some Brazilian cuisine at the Churrascaria Brazil Grill and Pizza. If you are the nature-loving type Bushnell Park not only offers the opportunity to seek shade under a choice of approximately 150 varieties of trees but also to look at a 1914 carousel and memorials recognizing the bravery of soldiers from the Civil War and the Spanish-American War. The Riverside Park, part of the Riverside Recapture Program, allows visitors to partake in rowing, mountain biking, fishing as well as many other fun, outdoor activities.
If the Big Apple appeals more to your senses, feel confident that every corner will bring an exciting attraction. The Museum of Modern Art is free every Friday night from 4:00pm * 8:00pm (the line gets long but moves quickly). SummerStage in Central Park has several free concerts that satisfy most musical tastes but SummerStage regulars say that the secret is to go to see an artist that you do not expect to appreciate. You never know what will make your body sway and your feet tap. On most warm weekends New York opens its streets to vendors, jewelry makers and artists for New York City Street Fairs. When these are in session, you can purchase a unique find at a great deal, have snack from the numerous food carts or simply browse through the eclectic mix of sounds, smells and unusual trinkets.
