If you’ve ever been curious about why Connecticut is called The Constitution State, Hartford is the best place to find out. The groundwork for the US Constitution was laid right here – in a 1639 sermon, The Fundamental Orders, by the Reverend Thomas Hooker – calling for a representative government in Connecticut.Home to the State Capitol, the Old State House (where you can ogle a two-headed calf), Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher-Stowe, an arcade-like state-of-the-art Science Center, America’s first public Art Museum, and a plethora of great restaurants,  there’s more to this Insurance hub than actuarial tables.  Come for the business, stay for the pleasure on this constitutional Getaway.
