I live in a small town of 3,000 people. There is nothing to do in my town. If we want to buy anything we need to go to neighboring towns. We do have a wonderful residential beach that opens in the summer. I moved here because it is a small town with a wonderful school system. There is little to no crime. We a beautiful state forest. I feel very blessed to live here.
Review Barkhamsted
My experiences have been excellent, however, not everyone feels this way.
Many restaurants that serve delicious food as well as being affordable.
