Greatest small town in CT! Great New England feel. Very close knit feel with all other residents of the town. Lakes, state forests, and a wonderful downtown area with shops and restaurants.
I have lived in Chester since I was 5 years old and have seen a lot of changes and a lot of new faces. I feel to have been lucky to have grown up here. Unfortunately some many things in life have changed and not all for the better. But overall I love this town.
Chester is a very safe, quaint family town. Perfect spot to raise children and be involved in the community.
