Great place to live and even better schools! Glastonbury is super warm and friendly. There is little commute time and some of the best fine dining restaurants. Best aspect is the school system though.

It is a nice community that is very family orientated, but there is too much traffic for the small downtown area. They are building too many apartments for the small area which is causing congestion for everyone.
The part of Glastonbury I live in is East Glastonbury. It is very quiet and everyone is super friendly. The neighborhood is clean and during the daytime, it is super safe to walk alone. It would be safe at night too but I would not recommend it. I love living in Glastonbury. There are many places to go with beautiful views, especially in the Fall time.
