Ready to Get Out and Have Fun Again?!!
Last year stunk. This dumb virus basically took a full year from all of us. There weren’t any baseball or hockey games. No movies in theaters or concerts anywhere. No festivals or farmer’s markets.
And in a city that has so much of this stuff going on all year round, missing out on that kind of Hartford fun is nothing short of criminal. Thanks for nothin’, COVID!
Well, now that we’re mostly vaccinated and just about everything has fully (or almost fully) reopened, it’s time to make up for lost time! Here are a few items to put on your calendar. This is really only a tiny sampling of all the fun that is just outside your door at Park Place Towers. To find it all, click this link. But for a taste, here are a few items you need to make plans to attend.
- Hartford Yard Goats Baseball — Hartford has its own Double A Minor League Team in the Eastern League. And they play at Dunkin’ Donuts Park in downtown on Main Street just north of I-84. They opened this home season on May 11. Link to the Yard Goats schedule here.
- Farmer’s Market at Connecticut’s Old State House — There’s no better setting for a Farmer’s Market than our historic Old State House. Every Tuesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from June 15 to October 29 you’ll find great fruits and vegetables, crafts, lively music, and more. Plus, you’ll be supporting local agriculture, which is the freshest idea around!
- Summer Concert Series at Connecticut’s Old State House — On the East Lawn of this historic building and grounds you’ll find the free Summer Concert Series. You don’t need a ticket or a reservation, just a blanket or a lawn chair, and you’re ready to hear some great music. Every Friday at noon until October 8, and the first concert is today (June 15)!
- Cruises from Eagle Landing State Park — With the Connecticut River winding its way right through the center of town, you can hop on the RiverQuest for a two-hour cruise on the lower Connecticut River, what the Nature Conservancy considers to be “One of the Last Great Places.” There are sunset cruises, a Summer Solstice Sunset Cruise on June 20, a Father’s Day Cruise on June 20, and others. Check this link for the cruise calendar. And you don’t even have to bring Captain Stubing or Gopher with you!
- Chaka Khan — Chaka Khan, who has sold over 70 million albums and is known for awesome hits such as “I’m Every Women'' and “Ain’t Nobody” will be tearin’ the roof off the Ridgefield Playhouse on June 25. Here’s more information about that show, and you can find the whole summer series lineup here.
OK, so you already knew Park Place Towers was THE place to live in Hartford. Now you also know it’s time to get out there and enjoy everything that’s happening once again! If you have any questions about Park Place or leasing or anything else, please call us at (860) 951-3400.
