Along historic Main Street in downtown Hartford, there are shops for home décor and collectibles, flowers and gifts, jewelry, hobbyist supplies, outdoor sporting supplies, specialty coffee, and a nostalgic ice cream parlor and candy store.
While strolling through downtown, you’ll admire the historical ambiance of the classically designed streetlights and benches, as well as the peaceful fountains, millpond and waterfall just east of Main Street.
Shopping opportunities continue as you travel through town. Stores and restaurants line Highway 60 (Sumner Street) east and west and provide easy access to housewares, clothing and resale shops, and other specialty goods and services. State Highway 83, just south of Downtown Main Street, offers an old-fashioned fresh frozen custard stand, movie theater, hardware store and more.
