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 town that ranges from average business and shopping centers to a quaint historical part of town that makes it feel like a community. It is diverse and family oriented with parks and many sidewalks for biking or walking. Wethersfield also has a beautiful and historical cove area; great for boating, fishing and many town events.
My family and I just recently moved to Wethersfield, although we were previously in a very close suburban town. We have located in Old Wethersfield and are walking distance from our favorite pizza place. The atmosphere is great, our neighbors have been awesome, and we all very much enjoy living here.
