If you’re ever heading out to the Hampton, Connecticut area, can I recommend a walk through the town’s center? Much like Mansfield Historic District, it’s a grouping of old homes and storefronts — none of which ever seem to be open when I drive through. There are lots of things to do around the Hampton area, just nothing to do right here, except walk around and look at these pretty old houses.
Our Lady of Lourdes Church
For this walk. set your GPS to the Hampton Congregational Church and park there. From there you can walk up and down Main Street.

A Bit Hampered in Hampton
Please don’t do this to us, Rock Cat owners. As a Hartford resident and tax payer and staunch defender, I am pleading. We don’t need another reason for the people living in the suburbs surrounding Hartford to speak negatively about Hartford. They love to talk shit about Hartford. It’s annoying in the short term, and in the long term it takes time away from addressing Hartford’s real problems.
So please, not the Yard Goats.
