I love living in Orange, Connecticut. The school system is great and Amity Regional High School is a Blue Ribbon School. Eventhough it is in Woodbridge, Connecticut the town's of Bethany, Orange and Woodbridge students attend. The neighborhood I live in is quiet and very safe. The Boston Post Road is located in Orange and some other cities and towns. The Post Road has everything you need for your shopping needs. Also, one of my favorite places in Orange is the Old Tavern Baseball fields. I have played baseball on all of the fields.

I have lived in Orange all my life, and it has been an overall good experience. I attended the public school system here and got a quality education. All of the teachers were very good. The town is very family friendly, offering multiple town events per year such as the fair and the carnival. It is easy to commute in Orange as the roads are usually not busy. It is not very easy to find a job in Orange, and many residents commute to neighboring towns to work. Orange is a very pleasant place to live, and everyone you meet is very kind.
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.
