Overview of West Hartford

The community of West Hartford is a suburb of the larger city of Hartford, which lies 100 miles southwest of Boston and 120 miles northeast of New York City. Kiplinger ranked West Hartford in the top 10 of the best cities for raising a family. The suburban area is bordered by the Metacomet Ridge that includes Talcott Mountain, water reservoirs and the 51-mile Metacomet Trail, which serve as a number of outdoor recreation and vacation options. If you're looking to get out of the city, finding an apartment for rent in a neighborhood here may be just what you need.

Living in West Hartford

Native Americans lived here for centuries and called the area "suckiaug." In the early 1600s, Dutch settlers established a fur trading business, which later became known as Fort Huys de Goede Hoop. A group of people from the Massachusetts Bay Colony arrived and founded the community. Agriculture sustained West Hartford residents through the early 1900s. Shortly thereafter, affluent Hartford residents began leaving the city for the more appealing rural, country life.

Today, the town spans more than 22 square miles and boasts more than 64,000 residents. Apartment renters and other residents take pride in their neighborhood and community by placing an importance on education and public safety. Citizens are encouraged to become involved in situations that concern the town. All work together to maintain the attractiveness of the environment.

Apartment renters enjoy outdoor activities at both the historic Elizabeth and Westmoor Parks. Encompassing 102 and 162 acres prospectively, the locations feature themed gardens, picnic areas, sports courts, ponds, wooded trails and expansive open spaces.
