Granby is more than just a town. It is a community. Over the years I have grown and changed among many people just like me here. We have known each other since we were very little. In a little place like this, everyone knows each other. No one here is really ever truly alone. We all have each others backs. This is a wonderful place to grow up and I have had a safe, happy childhood here. I feel extremely lucky to have grown up here. While it may not have been the most exciting place, and it could surely use some more diversity, I am very grateful to have had such a fun, safe place to live for so long.

Granby is beautiful and friendly! It’s a wonderful place to raise kids, or go on nature walks or to meet new friends. There are many delicious places to eat and it’s close to West Hartford for more night life.
Granby is a small community with great public schools. However, the town lacks diversity and consists of primarily upper middle class families. The taxes in Granby are also super high and it's a hike to get to the nearest mall and shopping centers.
