Central Connecticut is a great place to live. The artistic community is alive and well in Connecticut with ever growing craft brewing companies, world-class theater, music, and dance performances at The Bushnell, Shubert and Goodspeed Opera House, as well as museums for every taste. For those who want to be outdoors, state and local parks and beaches offer the ideal setting for paddling, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, camping, bird watching, swimming, and picnicking. Are you trying to find the right town to live in? Connecticut provides a fantastic mix of urban, suburban, and rural communities to explore. Originally settled by Dutch fur traders in 1614, then later by English settlers in 1633, a vibrant rich history permeates the culture and landscape with many homes and buildings exceeding 250 years. With a moderate climate, Connecticut has beautiful autumn foliage, a long harvest season, and numerous berry farms and orchards for you to pick your own strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, pears, and apples. Three minor league baseball teams, NCAA Champion basketball teams, and several other sports teams call Connecticut their home. If that is not enough for you, we are only a short two hour drive from both New York City and Boston.
