West Hartford is an incorporated town located west of Hartford, the second-largest city by population in the state of Connecticut. Originally a part of Hartford until 1854, when voters decided to become independent and incorporated as a town, West Hartford today is home to over 63,000 residents, which is a growth of over 2,000 residents since the 2005 US Census Bureau estimates were conducted. West Hartford was recently named as one of the best places in the U.S. to raise a family.
West Hartford developed as more of a suburb of Hartford than anything, and developed much differently than East Hartford, which was more industrial like Hartford and other major cities of Connecticut. West Hartford today is a major vacation spot, and its economy revolves heavily around tourism and other service-based industries. Retail and healthcare are also major contributors to the city’s economy, and West Hartford today is known for its ease-of-access, particularly for motorists, as well as for its vibrant downtown core, despite its size.
