USA, Connecticut: Stamford – Shopping and Culture
However, if you are looking for a more lively experience, try a local center that pulsates with great shopping opportunities, good restaurants or a cultural scene.
We start in the city center. This will certainly not disappoint you if you expect to shop. Go to Stamford Town Center because there are many globally known brands like Macy’s, Vans or Barnes and Noble. If you are hungry, leave the shopping center and head for Main Street. There are plenty of restaurants, you won't know which to choose.
From Stamford Town Center, you can take Bedford Street. There you will surely eat well, and after a meal you can take a walk in the small Latham Park. Opposite the park is the stylish Avon Theater, where they play mainly independent films. You'll leave approximately $ 14 for an adult ticket.
For culture, you can also visit the modern-looking Palace Theater. However, do not be fooled, the theater was opened in 1927. The main stage is original, as well as the smaller stage UpStage, where you will feel like in a small venue, which is typical for stand-up performances. The program at the Palace Theater is really varied, with comics, dancers and a symphony orchestra.
Stamford Museum and Nature Center is a great place to visit. The Stamford Museum has a large number of exhibits every year. You can see, for example, the work of Gutzon Borglum, a famous American sculptor you do not know, but actually know. He is the author of famous portraits of four American presidents - Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln - that are carved into the Mount Rushmore. Each is nearly 20 meters high.
But we should also know the artist in a different context. He and his wife lent a large part of his land to build a military camp for Czechoslovak volunteers, who after training traveled to the Czechoslovak Legion to France. In addition, he participated in adjustments to the Washington Declaration, the Declaration of Independence of the Czechoslovak Nation by its interim government.
