You might want to take a limo to Connecticut along the shoreline somewhere--Between Norwalk and New Haven. Rent a car and then drive up to Hartford and enjoy the surrounding area.

Public transportation in Connecticut is NOT advancedly organized from the New York Airports.

If your a seasoned traveller--you can arrange to get to Grand Central Station which would be best as you can then take a train directly to Connecticut.......there are also trains to HARTFORD ...from New Haven as well. I say for seasoned travellers --because you there will be quite a bit of arrangement of plans needed to get this done--if you don't take the lime into Connecticut.

First you may want to check the trains for the Hartford Schedule as there are not a lot daily going there.

This is what you will need to plan around if this would be your choice.

Personally --I would suggest a Limo to a hotel asomewhere along the coastline of Connecticut ...rent a car and then drive yourself around to where ever you'd like to go. You reall yneed a car in Connecticut.....but if a car is not an option for you--the train will get you to Hartford.

You can take Airtran www.panynj.gov/airports/jfk-airtrain.html to the Long Island Railroad or the subway to Penn Station in New York

it might be easier to take the shuttle to Penn Station ( which is in midtown Manhatten)

then Amtrak train to Hartford www.amtrak.com/train-schedules-timetables but there are maybe only 2 trains to choose from for the train to Hartford

it might be easiest to take CT Limo direct from JFK to Hartford - this is a bus or van but will be quicker than than going in to Penn Station www.nyairportservice.com/page.php?id=51
