Newington is a suburb of Hartford located in central connecticut, in Newington you're never far away from the Berlin Turnpike, a major shopping and dining strip. The school system is great in newington having gone through it myself, I would describe the town generally as a more conservative leaning although generally moderate. The town is also not incredibly diverse being predominantly white. The nightlife in newington specifically is nothing exciting being a suburb but connecticut is small, and there's plenty of better nightlife options in towns nearby. Housing here can be a little expensive but the neighborhoods are also very safe and very well kept, housing here is definitely in high demand. Newington is also relatively close to hartford so there are plenty of job opportunities close by.

Newington is a great place to live, it's really quiet but it has easy access to anywhere you want to go! There are a lot of food joints in Newington, especially in the town center which has a quaint kind of charm to it. The people here are pretty normal and overall it is just like any small, quiet, suburban town to live in.
I think this town is incredible! There is plenty to do and the town is very safe. I feel like the community is close together and there are always opportunities for jobs, service, and education.
