Cheshire is a great place to raise a family. There are many family activities such as sports and arts classes. There are many parks and churches as well. The public school system is one of the best in the state. It has amazing and dedicated teachers. There isn't much of a nightlife, although a few new places are beginning to open up. People here are relatively friendly, but it is a more expensive place to live. It is located outside of the city, but in a central area that many places are close by.
Lovely little town, wish it had more restaurants and shops. It would be nice to get a Target or something of that nature. But the town itself is friendly and feels homey. I would recommend it to someone looking to move to the area. Housing prices are pretty expensive since it has excellent schools, so if you don't have children you may want to look elsewhere.
I live in a small town where we all know each other - nothing major goes on here socially and it's generally a rich white town, but pockets of diversity are popping up as the generations fade in and out. We are a town that has seen a lot of pain - young kids dying, families destroyed through some traumatic event, but we always come together as a community and help each other start over and begin anew. I see a lot of growth, with having new school officers (superintendants and principals), with new forms for expression (Ball and Socket, abandoned factory turned arts center) and more community outreach (larger community food pantry, generally more volunteerism). Cheshire is small but we have a lot to be proud of.
