Andover Reviews

2 reviews
To an outsider Andover, Connecticut may be one of the most bland towns they have ever had the pleasure of passing through. With a population just over 3,000, the town's busiest location would most likely be the liquor store. However, once you step inside the walls of this seemingly dull, little town you discover that the atmosphere is not at all what it seems. Andover is the perfect place to raise a family, receive a wonderful education, and make lifelong friends.
Living in a small town has many perks; however, their is also a sense of confinement. I feel that I need to break free to reach my full potential. I need explore the world--live and learn. I wish to visit a place where all people are not upper-middle class Caucasians working a nine to five job. All in all, I am forever thankful for my small town of Andover, but I yearn for more diversity and adventure. Maybe one day when I become too old to explore the world, I will come back to my forever home in Andover, Connecticut.
Review Andover
The area is very quiet and very safe. This area is close to my current college.
