Small town, great restaurants, close to casino and friendly. I enjoy visiting the local museums and beaches there, especially Ocean Beach. During the summer there are many festivities and entertainment. It's also family friendly!

I was born and brought up in New London Ct. I've gone to school here and wanted to give back to my community. I believe that all children should be given a great education. Every child is deserving of a teacher who teaches in a way that is fun and engaging, and that is what I want to be. Currently I am going to Eastern to become a teacher. I'm ready to be the best teacher I can be!
New London County is full of artsy people who are diverse in every which way. What I like about it is the candor that you will find within its citizens, as well as family-like qualities. However, something that I would change about it is the discrimination that can come from certain groups of people.
