What to Do in Danbury, CT
Wonder in the Hat Capital
Once known as the “hat capital of the world,” with mills putting out 36 million headpieces a year at its peak, John F. Kennedy’s intense dislike for hats led the local industry to collapse – and left Danbury to discover all of the other wonderful things it has to offer both residents and visitors. Today, everything from tranquil vineyards to world-class golf courses is within easy reach.
Conveniently located near area attractions, the Ethan Allen Hotel features rooms and suites guests can’t wait to return to after a day of exploring Danbury’s outdoor activities, museums, shopping, and historic sites. From antique shopping and hiking trails to Connecticut’s famous fall foliage, you’ll discover an array of things to see and do just moments from our doors.
