Things to see and do in a
walkable dowtown

Nowhere is it more evident that New Britain is going through a time of transformation than in the downtown area, where Streetscape and Complete Streets improvements are being implemented. These improvements are being made to help make the downtown more walkable, livable, and attractive, and involve everything from installing brick sidewalks, to reducing road widths at intersections, installing way-finding signage, artwork, benches, street trees and other amenities like WiFi access.

New Britain was one of the first cities in Connecticut to establish its downtown as a Business Improvement District (BID). The New Britain Downtown District serves the 142 distinct downtown New Britain properties to help develop New Britain’s Downtown financially, aesthetically, socially and culturally.
