Welcome to Center of Connecticut

The Central Regional Tourism District promotes Connecticut's River Valley/Greater Hartford and Greater New Haven region as a vacation and sight-seeing destinations for visitors to the New England region. It stretches from the Massachusetts border to Hartford, along the Connecticut River to New Haven and its neighboring shoreline towns.

Explore River Valley/Greater Hartford

The Connecticut River, centerpiece of the River Valley region, soothingly meanders from Suffield to Old Saybrook. Along the way, visitors can stop in Hartford, the Constitution State’s Capital, for a glimpse of Connecticut’s history, or explore the River Valley for rest, relaxation and family fun.

Explore Greater New Haven

In a region that is home to Yale University and the birthplace of the hamburger, Greater New Haven imparts tales that have evolved into the cornerstone of American history with inventions such as the cotton gin, Frisbee and the lollipop. The perfect home base to experience the arts, great shopping and dining and picture-postcard beach towns.
