Take a walk along the pathways of Mohegan Park in Norwich, Connecticut. We recommend the Fall and Spring time for a beautiful backdrop to your proposal at Mohegan Park. Take a seat on one of the benches along the walking paths, hold their hand and ask them to spend the rest of your lives together.

10. On a carriage or sleigh ride

No matter what the season, you can plan a storybook proposal just outside the city of Hartford at Wood Acres Farm or Foxglove Farm. Book a hayride or carriage ride in the fall, or cozy up with a sleigh ride in the winter. Ask your driver to stop so you can enjoy the beautiful views of the countryside, and ask her to marry you. Celebrate with a glass of champagne or a cup of hot cocoa afterward!

11. Over a memorable meal

ON20 is one of Hartford’s most romantic fine dining restaurants, located in the heart of downtown, with views of the Connecticut River. Reserve an intimate table with a window view. Start with a glass of wine or a creative house cocktail, then indulge in a multi-course gourmet feast. Splurge on the daily chef’s tasting menu or try the eggplant and zucchini risotto with mozzarella di bufala or the roasted hanger steak with blue cheese fondue and vegetables. Propose over dessert and champagne or on a post-dinner stroll.

12. Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford

Explore the art-filled hallways of the Wadsworth Atheneum museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut to propose among these relics of history. You can also enjoy the grounds outside of the Museum on a day with clear blue skies, and be present in the moment so you remember every little detail of your proposal.

13. Wood Acres Farm, Terryville

Step into a fairy-tale as you take a horse drawn carriage ride around the Wood Acres Farm in Terryville, Connecticut, and create one of the most surreal proposals you could have in Connecticut. This location is a sought after venue for weddings, so you could go as far as to suggest coming back to this location for your wedding day! How romantic!
