Seasons of the Northwest Hills towns of Burlington, New Hartford, Norfolk, Barkhamsted, Winchester Center, Goshen, Litchfield, Torrington, and Harwinton, Connecticut are known for their distinct rural scenery, which can stand in contrast to central and southern Connecticut, which is largely urbanized or suburbanized. Due to the rural feel of the area, the region is an extremely popular location for second homes, primarily with New York City residents. The hills are rural enough to offer an escape from city life, yet close enough (less than 90 miles) to visit on weekends. Many visitors also arrive in the autumn to witness the fall foliage, and to visit the region’s covered bridge or many waterfalls.
