Enfield has the Connecticut River to the west, Hartford to the south and Springfield, Mass., to the north. With Hartford only 30 minutes away and a number of local attractions to boot, homes for rent in Enfield can appeal to renters that love to have fun.
Golfers living in Enfield rentals have a local option for indulging their athletic interest at the Grassmere Country Club, with its 9-hole golf course and pro shop. Just beyond the southern edge of town, Scantic River State Park offers renters the chance to go hiking, fishing, birding and hunting. Farther to the south, Hartford is home to an array of museums and nightlife attractions. For instance, the Mark Twain House & Museum provides a glimpse into the life of the American writer, while Black Bear Saloon sports dozens of televisions in a pub-style atmosphere. North of the border, in Springfield, Six Flags New England hosts a variety of rides and attractions, from roller coasters to water slides.
