Fall in Hartford

Autumn in Hartford Connecticut

Hartford has a lot to offer for those who want to enjoy fall activities. From spectacular foliage to festive events, you can find plenty of things to see and do in and around the Hartford area during the autumn months.

Fall Foliage

Connecticut is home to impressive displays of fall foliage each year, and you don’t have to venture far from Hartford to fully enjoy! Talcott Mountain State Park, located about seven miles from Hartford in Bloomfield, has stunning foliage. The park also provides you with a chance to see Heublein Tower, which has been around since 1914. Climbing up to the 1,000-foot high summit of Talcott Mountain offers even more impressive views of foliage throughout the area, along with views of the Long Island Sound and the Berkshires.

Pumpkin Patch

The greater Hartford area offers several pumpkin patches where you can choose a pumpkin to carve for Halloween or place on your porch as a seasonal decoration. Rose’s Berry Farm, located in South Glastonbury, has a big selection of pumpkins to choose from during fall, as well as kid-friendly attractions. Bring the family to the farm for face painting, hayrides, a corn maze, live music and more. Rose’s Berry Farm is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 5 pm.

Graveyard Shift Ghost Tours

One of Hartford’s biggest attractions is the Mark Twain House. You can also learn more about the haunted history of Hartford on the Graveyard Shift Ghost Tours that the Mark Twain House and Museum hosts during fall. These tours focus on the spooky side of the city while also exploring Victorian traditions that involved the supernatural.

Antique Shopping

Fall’s crisp air makes it a pleasant time to explore the greater Hartford area in search of antique shops. Throughout this region, you’ll find several antique stores that make it easy for you to get a head start on your holiday shopping. Barn Antiques in Marlborough, holds a wide selection of antiques and collectibles. You’ll find more than 40 vendors in this antique marketplace.

Apple Picking

At Rogers Orchards, located in Southington, you can visit a bicentennial farm while picking fresh apples. The farm grows more than 8 varieties of apples. You can also purchase baked goods from the farm to go along with your freshly picked apples.

There’s nothing like spending the fall months in Connecticut. If you’re a resident of Park Place Towers, talk to our front desk staff about more great local events.
