Coventry is a very nice town because it has the perfect amount of seclusion and community. Community events like the farmer's market and school sports bring the town close, but the homes allow whatever privacy its owner desires. It is also very close to UCONN (perfect for families/students), and Hartford, CT, so for those wanting to experience faster moving lifestyles for some time but live in a small town, they can still travel to those places fairly easily.

I moved here a year ago this passed November and it was the best decision I could have made for my family. I have two sons on the Autism spectrum and after coming here to Coventry, CT I have seen a drastic improvement in their over all well-being way beyond what I could have ever hoped for. We live in the lake area with easy access to the town's beautiful lake and the local state forest which is perfect for our walks together. Our neighbors and community have been so helpful and welcoming in making my family and I feel right at home. We're truly blessed to be part of such a wonderful area of Connecticut.
A large downside to Coventry is the lack of attractions. I would say the schools are pretty decent, but there is a large vape and drug issue going on through the middle and high school right now. The town overall is pretty safe and everyone is nice.
