Getting Around in Waterbury, CT

One of the best ways to get around Waterbury is by bicycle. Over the past few years, the city has worked hard to educate the public on the safe sharing of roads by cars and bikes, hoping that more and more commuters would take to two wheels. A 44-mile long bikeway that runs along the Naugatuck River is also under construction. When it’s done, it’ll connect residential areas to rail lines that can be used to commute into other cities. In addition to being an incredibly bicycle and pedestrian friendly city, Waterbury also has an extensive network of busses that are managed by CT Transit.

Timexpo Museum

<p>Back in its heyday, Waterbury adopted the motto, Quid Aere Perennius, or, What's More Lasting Than Brass?&Oacute; because, up until the mid-1900s Waterbury was one of the leading manufacturers of brassware, including brass clocks and watches. Though Timex and other watchmakers have since moved out of town, the clocks are still ticking at the Timexpo Museum, which is a great place to go if you're hoping to do a little time traveling. The museum is home to hundreds of timepieces that were made in Waterbury from the 1850s through the 1950s. It also documents the history of clock making by highlighting key inventions in time keeping.</p>

Seven Angels Theatre

<p>The Seven Angels Theatre is Waterbury's premiere place for theatrical performances. Though local thespians were dubious as to whether a town the size of Waterbury could support a professional theater, the theater's first production sold out all 21 performances. Since that first show in 1988, the theater has expanded to produce a half dozen shows each season. Additionally, Seven Angels offers acting classes and summer camps for the kids, training up a new generation of performers that will soon take to the stage.
