Lived in this beautiful town for over a decade. The perfect town to raise a family! Schools are exceptional, residents have incredible pride and a vested interest maintaining high expectations of civic leaders.

I've loved living in West Simsbury for the most part! The schools are great and most of my friends live within 10 minutes driving which is great. The only thing I would change is maybe having a little more to do in town but it's a great place to raise a family and be involved in youth sports or town government.
I love the housing opportunities in Simsbury
