Nice, Suburb town of the state of CT just outside of Hartford County. Schools/Education is great. Location is quiet and great if you have small kids. However because it is a small town there aren't many things to do and many stores and restaurants close around 8 pm. Main Street has a lot of options and is a highlight of the town. There's also Simsbury Celebrates in the summer where the Hartford Symphony Orchestra performs that many residents find enjoyable.

Simsbury is a great small suburban town located north of Hartford. Simsbury offers great local businesses, as well as very fun daily activities. With the Farmington river running straight through the town, many water activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, etc. are very popular. Simsbury also has a very strong public school system, and is ranked very highly among the nations schools.
Great place to raise kids! Many family friendly neighborhoods and activities to kids. Outstanding school district.
