Mansfield is a great place to raise a family. Close proximity to great public schools, library, post office, and downtown Willimantic make it a great location.
A Very friendly town, great education system, and opportunities. Many fine restaurants and budget eat as well. A "college town" with UConn and ECSU a 10-minute drive away. That being said, great pizza and amenities such as Amazon and cell phone providers are right next to the grocery store which means all the errands can be done in one trip.
