Great place to live! Central location close to all major highways, eateries, and the city. Hartford is less than two miles away. It is great to be near everything, yet have the comfort and safety of living in the Suburbs. The School system is amazing and my kids love the High School. The best decision I have made was to move to Wethersfield.

Wethersfield is a great small town with lots of interesting history. Wethersfield has a great school system and makes students feel welcome. There are many fun events in the community that connect families and promote healthy habits such as exercising, eating healthy, and being kind.
Peaceful, yet features a lot of entertainment and food options close by. The town does suffer from poor roads, lose in population, and high taxes. Schools are good. Town is safe. Wethersfield is very close to a lot of great places for food and entertainment, and is only a short commute from Hartford and other larger cities in the area.
