Candia Reviews

Growing up in Candia meant time enjoying nature and living a relatively quiet life. Never too much commotion or safety issues other than those few crazy neighbors that fire their shotguns a little too frequently or decide to create underground bunkers with dynamite. Overall, the average quiet rural lifestyle can be found here.

Candia is beautiful and peaceful town with breath taking views. Also, they a great local family restaurant called "Town Cabin" and a rustic dinner called "Stubbys". This family friendly town is a great place to raise children.
Small town feel, quaint, friendly suburb. I lived here for 4 years with my parents and sister. It is a great place for families looking to live outside of the "city" feel, while still being within a half hour of shops, grocery stores, etc.
