Rocky Hill, eight miles south of Hartford, is situated on the west bank of the Connecticut River. Major roads that traverse the Town are State Routes 3, 99, and 160 and Interstate 91. The Town is also accessible by water and air transportation. Contiguous towns are Berlin, Glastonbury, Wethersfield, Newington and Cromwell.
At only 14 square miles, Rocky Hill might be one of Connecticut’s tiniest towns, but in terms of its historical, economic and political significance, and even its tourist dollars, the tiny town packs a mighty punch.
Named one of CNN Money Magazine’s top 100 places to live in 2007, Rocky Hill has shopping, good schools, a mix of apartments and neighborhoods, major employers, a hospital for heroes and veterans, a world-renowned archaeological site, and an enterprising spirit that’s continued to move the Town forward, even during the most trying times.
Located almost precisely in the center of the state and surrounded by major highways, Rocky Hill is about an hour’s drive from the farthest corners of Connecticut and well worth the trip for its shopping and restaurants alone.
