I love living in North Branford, CT. I have lived hear my entire life. (I was even born in my basement here in North Branford!) Although, on the surface, it may not seem like there is much to do in this town, my friends and I always manage to have fun here. In the summer there is a huge field of sunflowers that people from all over CT come to view and take pictures by. Also, in the summer there is the annual Potato and Corn Festival (POCO Fest) which takes place in August. This festival has food trucks and vendors, rides, and carnival games. Furthermore, there are great ice cream places, including one called "Rose Orchards" which serves locally made custard. Rose Orchards is located on a farm where customers can buy their custard and feed the animals. absolutely love how dog friendly North Branford is. My entire neighborhood block seems to have dogs. I also find the people here to be friendly. Overall, I love North Branford and would love to live here forever.

North Branford is a very quaint, small town in a great location. There is easy access to the highway and it's only 15 minutes from the beach. There are great parks, schools, shopping centers and an awesome orchard with fresh pies and cider! I love North Branford...it's a wonderful place to raise a child.
This is a quiet little town that is always buzzing with activity. Every night you can drive by a field and see some sort of sporting event going on. Locals are very nice and friendly in North Branford and they are always turning up to support the youth. People in this town often grow up here and leave. However, a majority come back to the town when it is time to start families of their own due to the homey feel of the town.
