I grew up in Wethersfield, Connecticut. I experienced their public schools up until I graduated college. It is a very tight knit crowd as almost everyone knows each other. This leads to a very neighborly feel. There is also Old Historic Wethersfield which is absolutely beautiful to walk around and eat at their many restaurants. One thing I would change would be nightlife. I hope that in the future, Wethersfield comes up with some ideas about how to have a safe, night time activity for teens, so they don't get caught up doing something bad.

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.
