I grew up in Orange and it was a wonderful place to live. The school system was fantastic and allowed to me excel in college and in my career. My friends were the best I could have had. The culture of the town is one of a rural small town, despite being modern and suburban complete with town fairs including volunteer firemen's carnival and other festivals encouraging unity in the community. The community in Orange is very charitable, the people who live here know it is not a cheap place to live and therefore make donations through schools, religious institutions and the community center to support those living through hard times.

Quaint little town. Perfect place to raise a family. Orange has much to offer. Location is great. The town is situated between just about everything you could possibly need. The town is just an hour train ride away from New York City. Orange has an amazing education system. Children in the town will go to school from K to 8 in in the town then go to the local Woodbridge to join the regional school district. Orange offers lots of history in it's streets. The town offers many events such as summer concerts on the green, holiday celebrations and the annual carnival. The town has a perfect balance of historical farm but also modern town.
I moved here from a busy town in New York. The town of Orange has a very warm welcoming to every person who lives here or simply passes through. The school district is phenomenal and the community is like family. We are close to two main highways as well as Route 1 with tons of stores and restaurants. There is plenty to do here and see, and luckily we are in between Hartford, CT, and New York City. I would not want to be anywhere but here.
