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 town of Simsbury isn't a place where I'd recommend for children and young adults to attend school or interact with locals. Growing up as a student with special needs, I was bullied constantly because I didn't live the perfect lifestyle or personality. However, the town's famous attractions and restaurants are a delight for people living in the area.
Simsbury is a great town to raise a family. The town offers many family-friendly facilities, events, and activities. Simsbury Farms has a wonderful community pool, playground, kid's classes and camps, and golf course. Every summer the Hartford Symphony Orchestra has four or five outdoor concerts. There are many playgrounds, parks and walking, biking and hiking paths through the town.
