East Granby is a very small rural town adjacent to Granby and Suffield. With plenty of open land and wooded areas, the town is serene all throughout the year. A generous amount of farms promote healthy living with available locally-grown produce. With these details in mind, East Granby is a perfect choice to raise a family. To contrast, the towns small size does not facilitate many afternoon activities. The nightlife is poor, with few restaurants and bars. In order to experience some activity, one must venture to nearby Granby or Simsbury. Nevertheless, East Granby is a wonderful little town where one can find healthy living and relaxation.
East Granby is a farm town in CT located next to the BDL airport. It's a clean and safe town, but it's very quiet. It's fairly close to other towns. It's a neutral place to live. You have to create your own destiny here and search for opportunity.
