From picturesque small towns to bustling cities, Connecticut offers a wide variety of wonderful locations one can call home. Read on to discover three of the most popular places to live in the state.

 

  • Shelton

 

Conveniently located between New Haven and Bridgeport, this city has been named the ‘richest city in Connecticut’ as it has the highest household median income in the state. Since the median age in the city is 47, it’s an especially good choice for retirees and any other person searching for a mature community with plenty of entertainment and recreational options, like beautiful Indian Well State Park. Moreover, the fact that it has many excellent schools makes it a great choice for growing families.

 

  • Milford

 

Thanks to its beautiful location on Long Island Sound, the residents of Milford are always surrounded by gorgeous views. Popular with young families, the city features some of the best public schools in the state with an impressive 11:1 student/teacher ratio. It also boasts the lowest dropout rate in Connecticut. Walnut Beach, Silver Sands State Park, and other beaches provide the perfect escape for those who love fresh, salty air and quality time on the sand.

 

  • Stamford

 

Quality job opportunities abound in Stamford, thanks to the city’s vast financial district. Although the cost of living in the city is high, its residents enjoy working at either one of the eight local Fortune 500 companies. Poverty and unemployment levels here are both within the 10 lowest in the state, making the city the perfect place to find success. Since the city’s population is quickly increasing, new eateries, entertainment venues, and retail establishments are opening up every other day. 

Whether you live in Connecticut or are considering moving to the area, researching new locales and visiting in person will help you find just the right fit for you and your family.
