Bored with politics today and couldn't think of a better title for the thread. Visited Connecticut for the first time in June. It was a gathering of friends in New London,CT from a Friday afternoon-Sunday noon. I flew into Hartford on a Thursday,rented a car and drove to New London which is about an hour away. Flew home on Monday. Set aside Friday and Sunday afternoon for some Civil War sightseeing. No battlefields in CT obviously but plenty of stuff to see and do. Did some research before the trip. There were a coupla museums in between Hartford and New London but they weren't open on the days/times I had set aside. One of the places I already knew about was the state capitol building in Hartford. That was my first destination on Friday morning. Beautiful building,inside and outside. Parking is an issue in Hartford. There is a visitor's parking garage for the government district. The CT Supreme Court and Legislature buildings are right there also. If you can't find the parking garage,stop a policeman and ask him/her. That's what I had to do.
