Where to Eat
Outside food and beverages cannot be brought into the Convention Center during the CT Regional. Concessions are available within the Convention Center. For dining options in downtown Hartford, please visit Hartford.com on-line Dining Guide.
The Star Shuttle is a great way to get around Downtown Hartford, and includes stops throughout downtown Hartford, and at the Connecticut Convention Center.
Where to Sleep
The 2013 Connecticut Regional has been selected to participate in the FIRST Regional Hotel Program. This means that you can view and book hotels for the CT Regional through the FIRST Housing website. If you are interested in other hotel options, please visit the Hartford on-line Accommodation Guide.
Where to Park
Parking is available at the Convention Center’s Parking Garage. To help reduce your cost (and the impact on the environment), we recommend minimizing the number of vehicles you bring to the Regional.
Additional parking is also available near the Convention Center. Please visit the Downtown Hartford Parking Map. (On the map, the Convention Center’s parking garage is Number 45 and can be found on the far right side of the map, near the Founders Bridge.)
