Middletown has not only been my home for my entire life but has been an ever changing yet historically rich city nestled right in the middle of Connecticut. Boasting a fabulous Main Street loaded with restaurants, shops, and outings and the home to Wesleyan university this city with a small town feel has something for everyone! My personal favorite part of Middletown though is the people! Middletown despite being a city has a very small town feel where everyone knows each other. I can't go to the grocery store without bumping into at least 3 people I know. Beyond that, Middletown is constantly changing and being renewed by our outstanding public works department and mayor! d

Middletown is a great community. Neighbors know one another and many are very active in their community. The City of MIddletown is a great place to raise children - there are many activities, including an award-winning children's museum, Kid City. There are also numerous cultural opportunities and the downtown has a large number of excellent ethnic restaurants. Wesleyan University stands high on the hill over looking the Connecticut River and has numerous offerings open to the public. I'd like to see Wesleyan students take more advantage of the city - we don't tend to see them that much downtown.
We have lived there for 25 years in westfield the "quiet corner". True to its name its in the middle of everything. Easy access to all highways, every store and service you could imagine. Different areas of middletown have very different characterictics and I can only speak for the Westfield section. I wouldnt want to live near downtown, but its great to visit. Main street is vibrant. Great place for raising kids. Kidcity is a gem! There is a lot to do for free in the area. Crime statistics are different depending where you are, so I am only rating our area. Diversity very different in the elementary schools. I give our area high marks for healthy living because of the amount of farms in the area where you can get anything from duck eggs to beef.
