All Categories
Very family oriented small community, suburban area, not far from Capital city. It provides excellent services to the elderly. It also provides great elderly housing opportunities. It's not far from three or four college campuses, UCONN, Capital Cummunity College, University of Hartford, University of Saint Josephs. It's accessible by public transportation. Real estate taxes are reasonable. Bloomfield has great parks and outdoor areas.
Review Bloomfield
Bloomfield is so quiet and comfy. Everyone helps one another and there are so many things to do in Bloomfield. The community stays pretty close nit and you never really hear about anything that goes on in Bloomfield. The cost of living is a bit price but it's worth it because you get such a bang for your book when becoming a resident of this town. Not much night life but definitely somewhere you want to raise your family. There are plenty of job opportunities and things to do for you children in the area. I miss living in this town and cannot wait to buy a house once I am ready.
Bloomfield is a very diverse town; close to the capital city, family friendly, has a movie theatre and access to exercise/gym facilities. School system is slowly moving in the right direction. More bicycle lanes,
