Great small town feel. Everybody knows everybody and looks out for one another. Tight knit. As safe of an area as there is around. Small classrooms in the local school so you get more one on one time
Quiet and peaceful. People respect each other here. It's a great place to raise a family. Lgbt community feels welcomed here. Some of the best nature preserves in CT.
