“Helping Hartford Redeem Itself as a City!”

The Center & The Square
Reviewed October 14, 2012

West Hartford's Blue Back Square and town Center are well worth a visit! There are a fantastic array of restaurants from quick lunches to family-friendly to high-end romantic. There are also a wide variety of cuisines including American, Irish Pub, Italian, Mexican, Steakhouse, Mediterranean, Seafood, Asian, as well as some large restaurant chains. But, it's not all about the food, there are great places to shop or browse including cute boutiques, national clothing chains, chocolatiers, sporting goods, jewelry, pottery, home goods, accessories, and music and book stores. The Square often has free concerts in the summer where people from town congregate in the evenings. There's a wonderful, new library and other community services available. It has so much to offer and is a great place to spend the day in any season!

The greatest part about this place is that you can park your car and walk from place to place. In fact, it's worth braving the rush hour traffic through hartford EVERY day just to live here :)

but at least it saves a trip to downtown Hartford, which it basically has severely impacted. why bother going downtown except for the theater.

It's fun to walk through the Center and over to the Square; A lively and upscale, walkable town, it's very near my Hartford neighborhood. I hope it will learn to welcome the diversity of this region. Parking needs to be cheaper, and public bathrooms should definitely be provided in a town like West Hartford.

Best shopping and dining options around. You can't help but enjoy yourself - people watching, window shopping, outdoor dining. A destination.
