Colchester is an amazing town filled with chances to learn and grow with the community. There are so many kind people along with and abundance of wonderful small owned businesses and restaurants! The town itself is has beautiful parks and fun places to spend your time. The schools are full of amazing staff members who connect with their students as best they can and really teach beyond the curriculum. They provide students and families many opportunities to be involved and share their passions.
Colchester has the best of both worlds. We have a town center with stores and restaurants. We also have beautiful country in the outskirts of town.
Great place to live. Friendly neighbors. Responsive local government. Excellent schools and close to medical facilities.
Colchester is a wonderful community for families. Members of the community are always willing to help others. In these difficult times, the community has come together to support one another.
It is a small town which I love. My neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. There are a few local restaurants and not many chains. I just moved there so have not explored too much and am unsure about the nightlife and school system since i have no children.
We love living in Colchester. Small Town with great people. We had a great experience with the school system. It is close enough to the Casinos and Harford, which makes up for the lack of night life. Overall, great little town!
Wonderful small, caring community. I am a third generation female graduate of Bacon Academy. After having lived in Boston, MA then West Hartford and Avon Connecticut, I am happy to be back in the welcoming, connected community of Colchester.
Where I live in Colchester is perfect for my baby brother Bodhi because there is a park just down the street that I can bring him to. But not only is the location of the house good for my brothers. It's also good for my whole family because we are close the store and restaurants and fast foods places. I haven't been in Colchester for too long, so I can't say to much about it. But the one thing that I can say about it is that there High School offers a lot more than the high school I go to in East Hampton.
It is a nice town. There are a lot of people here. The schools are good and all close by each other. There are many close restaurants and little stores. It has all the essentials like Stop and Shop, CVS, doctors offices, movie theatre, etc. There is not a whole lot of diversity in the people though.
Colchester is a close knit town that offers a great school system! the town is just big enough and has plenty of food places and hiking spots
I like colchester it is a small town. however, it could use more variety of restaurants, stores, and supermarkets. There have also been a lot of car break ins recently
There isn't much to do in this town, but people are friendly and it is safe. Its a good place to raise a family and affordable.
Relatively small town but very family friendly, since it is small it is very easy to make friends and see people you know around town often. However, there are a lot of traffic lights so commute time takes a little longer.
Colchester has a very small town feel. There is a good sense of community and it was a great place to grow up.
Just moved to Colchester this past spring. It has a lot of outdoor areas to explore, such as the Airline Trail and Salmon River Trail. People seem very nice and it's conveniently located.
I liked Colchester because of the outdoor atmosphere. It's a great place to get in touch with yourself. Hiking trails, biking trails, trail riding, and fishing are all accesible. I do wish that there were more social events in the area. The theater needs renovations and there has never been many options when it comes to food. Diversity would do this town well.
Colchester is a good balance between a suburban town having some privacy and good yard space, but is also very convenient to restaurants, gas stations, a Stop & Shop, movie theater etc. It is also easy on/easy off to route 2, and is only about 30 min from hartford and the casinos. It also has a family/connected feel, and the town does a lot on the green for the community. I haven't lived here long- but I love it so far.
