    Located inside a historic building with nine levels of seating available, you might want to stay a while at City Steam Brewery in Hartford, Connecticut. Order from a great selection of food items and cleverly named handcrafted beers. If you need some laughs to accompany those brews, stop in to the Brew-Ha-Ha, an in-house comedy club. Outdoors at Bushnell Park you can borrow and skate for free! Or ride a vintage carousel for only a dollar. These are definitely sites you can’t miss.
