When you book car hire, Connecticut and the surrounding areas can be explored cheaply and easily...
The state capital, Hartford, is one of the oldest cities in the United States and the bustling port town of Bridgeport is the most populous. Both cities have rich histories that can be explored through museums and parks, as well as amusement parks, zoos and guided tours to keep you busy during your visit. You can pick up Hartford car rental at the airport or from a rental office in the city, while car rental in Bridgeport can be collected downtown.
While many visitors skip merrily through Connecticut as they journey between the more rural and rugged spots of New England and the non-stop buzz of New York City, few give this state the attention it deserves. Sure, the views from the main highway can appear a little industrial, but get off that interstate and take a look around picture-postcard towns, pull in at traditional diners, follow the Connecticut Beer Trail or have a splash about at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. See Mark Twain’s house in Hartford, learn about life under the waves at Norwalk’s aquarium, visit a working farm or swing by historic sites such as the Comstock Covered Bridge, which offers a glimpse of the state from a time long gone.
Nowhere in Connecticut is more than three hours away by road so you can opt to stay in one place and make day trips, or tour the state and book hotels in different areas. Further afield, car hire enables you to reach New York City from Hartford in around two and a half hours, Boston in less than two, and the beaches of Cape Cod in three and a half hours.
