Cromwell has a small town feel but it is very convenient to most places in Connecticut via I-91 and Route 9. For a community of under 14,000, we have a lot available to us right in town regarding shopping and dining options. There is a good mix of big box retail/grocery stores, chain restaurants, and mom and pop stores/restaurants. It's a great town for young families and first time home buyers with a good sense of community. Our kids are not school-aged yet, but I've heard great things about the district and quite a few kids live in our neighborhood; we probably had close to 100 trick-or-treaters last Halloween.

Cromwell is such a small, safe and cute little community. The close-knit community provides a friendly atmosphere for everyone!
Cromwell is a quite community, centrally located in Connecticut. This is what I like the most about it. It is easy to travel to most destination inside and outside the city limits. It is also a condo community, which I also appreciate.
The nightlife is lacking and the job opportunities are few and far between. Thankfully, there are several larger cities in close proximity to it. So, work commute is not very long and time consume.
