Branford Reviews

1 review
Branford is a sweet little town. It is the type of place where everyone waves when passing by and everyone is on a first name basis. Of course that also entails everyone knowing every mistake you've ever made and no secret is kept quiet. The town is very quiet but friendly. Churches are spread over every corner and all three of the places to eat are quaint! Safe and hospitable. As for nightlife, the town is very quiet. Too quiet if you ask me. But I believe I would give up nightlife for a home town in which I feel safe.
