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!
Review Bethel
Bethel is a great, small town. Its definitely more geared towards families, but not a lot to do. Most people I know commute to Danbury for work. However, big companies like Duracell are also operating out of Bethel. Bethels school district is also top notch.
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.
