Often praised as one of the best small towns in America, West Hartford has a downtown, called The Center, to make most other towns green with envy. The Center and its recent extension, Blue Back Square, are made for walking and brim with one-off shops and hip international restaurants. The town also benefits from abundant green space, including the genteel Elizabeth Park, the trails at West Hartford Reservoir, and the education center at Westmoor Park.
