What I like about Avon is the level of intelligence among the general population. Everyone is very well educated and kind to one another. It's a safe neighborhood and the public school system is excellent and competitive. There are plenty of nearby restaurants and it's a very family friendly environment. Though there isn't a ton to do in Avon in particular, you have many options in neighboring towns such as West Hartford, Simsbury, Collinsville, and Farmington--to name a few.

Avon has been a wonderful place to grow up. The entire school system is filled with excellent teachers, exceptional leadership faculty and support staff who always support students in all we do. Students are encouraged to participate in internships to help students discover areas of interest, and areas of future study. Local service agencies welcome students to volunteer and learn about the importance of civic involvement and contributions to help our community. I would highly recommend Avon to families searching for a place to raise their children.
In addition to Connecticut, I've lived in Maryland and North Carolina. I've found both those places to be warmer than CT in more ways than one! Residents here tend to be more curt, less diverse, less friendly. Cost of living and income are higher. Not much for teenagers to do around here. You can go to the next town for a movie or something. The trees are gorgeous, though.
