As you're planning your trip to AOPA Expo in Hartford, Connecticut, October 4 through 6, don't forget to check into nearby attractions. Tour the homes of authors Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe; Bushnell Park; and the New England Air Museum at Bradley International Airport. If you're flying yourself, many attractions are only a short flight away, like Plymouth and the National Baseball Hall of Fame. For details on attractions near Hartford, read " New England Cool," in the August 2007 AOPA Pilot. Traveling to Expo: Catch a commercial flight — if you don't want to be the captain of your own ship — ride Amtrak, or drive. For more information on traveling and to pre-register (you could save up to 28 percent), see the AOPA Expo Web pages.
