We were lucky enough to visit during the Comstock Ferre festival this past weekend. The town was bustling with people for this wonderful event. Everyone was so friendly! Easy to park, and great to walk around and see the preserved homes.

Visiting Old Wethersfield is an experience in and of itself: come here and be prepared to be teleported to the 1700s.

I grew up in Wethersfield, and you really cant find a much more qunntessential beautiful New England town. Its on the river, with Wetherfield Cove, a runnoff of the CT River, adding to the beauty and centerpiece of Old Weathersfield. There is plenty here for history buffs, beautiful old homes (most of which you can tour), churches and the town... More

Its wonderful to walk around Old Wethersfield, stop for a bite to eat, wander through the Ancient Burial grounds and visit Cove Park. Particuarly beautiful in summer and fall.

Who would guess that an old fashioned Main St. still exists so close to a busy city? Ardently protected by town zoning, this area is close to the Connecticut River. Be sure to visit the Keeney Cultural Center for local exhibits and walk over to the Broad St. green for its collection of trees. Several bistros offer simple fare (a... More

We've lived in CT for 18 years and never stumbled upon Old Wethersfield. It's an easy stop between Hartford and the shoreline. Well worth a walk around, visit the historical museum, and have lunch. Everyone we met on a very cold and windy day was welcoming and friendly.

We only had half a day here on our way to Boston. It was a planed trip as we had read about the historical importance of this town. The ‘Towne’ has amazing, authentic New England architecture and the houses have been kept up to a high degree. The ‘ salt box’ design is so unique compared to our own buildings.... More
