Windham is just an ordinary small town. Because of its size, you don't need to travel very far to reach a grocery store, or even if you're looking for a bite to eat, which I really like. Theres also a mall close by which doesn't have many stores but it's nice to have in case you need any last minute items. Overall I think Windham is a nice calm town with really everything you need relatively close by.

Windham/Willimantic, Connecticut is a small-town deep in the Quiet Corner of our small state. People say that not a lot happens here, but that is simply not true. If you go into Willimantic, the city village of Windham, you will find some of the most hopping resteraunts in our state, including the Willimantic Brewery, Cafemantic, and Thread City Diner, all within walking distance of each other. Cafemantic was awarded the Revitalization Award back in 2010 by the local chamber of commerce.

Along with Great food, Willimantic sports the Capitol Theater, the old fashioned vaudeville theater gone Performing Arts Magnet High School, recognized statewide for their award winning Public Service Announcements for the DMV Teen Safe Driving Contest, and recognized nationwide for their work in Creative Writing in the Scholastic Art and Writing Contests. Dancers from the school also perform on the town's big summer hit Third Thursday, or Street Fest, where businesses open their doors to the community to advertise their products. All in all, Windham/Willimantic is a small jewel in the quiet corner, and more and more happens each passing year.
The windham region is very nice; however, the education system is suffering tremendously. Few crimes, facilities are always close (fire department, library, post office, etc). No grocery stores- need to go out of town. Overall, people are kind and helpful.
