Not much to do here would be nice if there was something more for young adults. The schools are nice but I feel the educational system just teaches you how to pass a test so they can get good funding. Students need to learn and be educated. The town is quite safe not a huge population. Not many jobs available, mostly just start off jobs and transition nothing really career-wise.

Wonderful place to raise kids. Schools top-notch. Town recreation area with beach on Lake Quassepaug. Whole town comes together for Memorial Day celebrations. Safe and clean. Parks and beautiful walking trail Great history!
This area is a small rural town with a good public education, although I attended private schools. I participated in some town activities which were well organized. The parks are beautiful and there is a nice public waling trail.
