Bethel Reviews

All Categories
Bethel is a small town community with great schools and cute local stores in the town center. Town people are an acquired taste, but if you can get over that, wonderful town to live!
Bethel is a beautiful place to live. Lots of parks, hiking trails, etc. Great New England charm. Bethel is undergoing a lot of change for the better, with downtown beautification and pedestrian friendliness being top priorities. Lots of local shops and restaurants. School system is top-notch.
I've lived in Bethel for 23 years, I grew up here. I've met the most wonderful friends, had a great education, and have felt safe in my community for as long as I can remember. Bethel is truly a community, and anyone would be lucky to start a family here.
