Main Street, Wethersfield

George Washington slept here, and though he probably didn't choose to stop in Wethersfield because it has one of Connecticut's most delightful Main Streets, I'm sure that was an added bonus. (If you have to plan a military campaign, why not do it someplace scenic, right?)

The area sometimes called Old Wethersfield - home to Wethersfield Cove - is also known as the Old Wethersfield Historic District, Connecticut's largest. These pictures represent only a small fraction of the historic buildings that make up this "Most Auncient Towne."

This Hartford suburb might be, as one reviewer on TripAdvisor put it, "a little off the normal path." But if it's not currently on your path, you'll probably want to alter your route a bit.

  1. They may not be as photogenic as the older buildings on this strip of Main Street (which are exceedingly so), but it's worth mentioning that two of the absolute best sandwich shops in Connecticut are also here: The Cove Deli and Aroma Bistro!
