Bloomfield Reviews

31 reviews
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 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,
Bloomfield is great place to raise your children.

Houses are priced around 80k, there is a local park in walking distance, it's a safe suburb, and there's many educational resources offered by the state of CT.

Bloomfield is also a great place to retire because there are many resources for the elderly.
