Granby Reviews

Granby is a nice, quiet little town for people who want to live somewhat removed from the hustle and bustle of city life. There is not much to do, but hiking and horseback riding are "popular" pastimes. The highway route running through the small town, Route 10, rather congests traffic for residents at many times during the week, and the road system could use quite a few improvements. I am very biased in saying that I like Granby, as I was born and raised in the town. However, lack of safety is not a very large concern, and the public school system is apparently better than many places throughout the Northeastern region. The cost of living is very high, and Granby is a slightly less than satisfactory place to live overall.

I lived there for years, and while there's not many activity-type places the town is very safe and provides a great sense of community. It's the type of place where you get to know all your neighbors and a bunch of the farmers. You know where your food comes from and you get your christmas shopping done while supporting the efforts of local artists.
There are many small local businesses including Stitches By Me, Grass Roots Ice Cream, Lite-N-Up, Ms. Murphy's Donuts in the neighboring town, Marji's Yarncrafts, and multiple people selling hand made pottery and other crafts. We also have many local pizza shops. The local businesses are run by very friendly people and it is an overall good experience. For larger stores we have Geissler's and Stop N Shop for grocery stores, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, and Subway. We don't have many big franchises but they are easily accessible in the neighboring towns.
