Awesome, quaint New England Town with a strong community. This town offers many activities for both families and couples. The center of town is small, but has a beautiful library, several restaurants, a huge park that offers concerts in the summer and non-stop community activities all year long. Overall, a great place to live/visit!

The good is covered pretty well here - schools, safety, and beauty. The bad is that 80 % of CT residents, and over 90% here in particular, are extremely reserved and Introverted. It is very much like Stepford (was actually located in CT) and Pleasantville. If you didn't grow up here it's much harder. Many big fish in small pond. Socially and interpersonally it is ill and broken, probably because of the lack of any diverse and/or larger population. So there's lot of social dysfunction and a sever lack of happy smiling people. It's Very weird that way. The social aspect of things is as bad as the schools, safety, and beauty are good.
Simsbury has an excellent public school system along with several private schools. It is extremely safe and a great place to raise a family. There are lots of activities such as parks, Simsbury Farms, activities at the library, historical places, little shops, etc. However, there is no nightlife and it can be very boring, especially for teens and young adults.
