Directly in between Boston and New York, the small state of Connecticut allows residents an easy commute to the big cities of the Northeast but an easier lifestyle and cost of living than those of its neighbors. Forested hills, white-steepled colonial churches and historic village greens create tranquil surroundings. Miles of shoreline offer watersports and beach fun, while the main cities of Bridgeport and Hartford provide ample urban amenities and entertainment options. New Haven, with its famed Yale University, is another pleasant community.

The most populous city in Connecticut, Bridgeport is just a train ride away from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Located on Long Island Sound, Bridgeport is characterized by a picturesque landscape that lends itself to a wealth of attractions such as majestic shoreline parks, fascinating museums, regional baseball and hockey, and music festivals.
Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Eastern Connecticut is a region where you can have an authentic, historic and quaint New England experience. One of the area’s most notable towns is Mystic, with attractions including the Museum of America and the Sea and the Mystic Aquarium. On the coast, variety is the spice of life, peppered with a refreshing salty air. Adults will enjoy steamed lobsters on the dock; kids will like the chug of the Essex steam train or a mug of delicious apple cider at America’s oldest steam-powered cider mill.
Connecticut’s capital city, Hartford is an 18-square-mile city and home to 125,000 residents, world-class dining, international cultural attractions, award-winning entertainment venues and some of the largest corporations in the nation. Hartford is also the birthplace of the Boys & Girls Club and the first FM radio station.
The second-largest city in Connecticut, New Haven is a true mecca of education, commerce and culture. The home of Yale University, New Haven brings together not only higher education but also fantastic health care and professional service opportunities. It is only a short train ride from the Big Apple.
New London is a lovely coastal town located in southeast Connecticut. New London’s historic waterfront district is the hub of creative energy that gives the city its top 10 rating among creative communities of its size in America. Art, music and design venues; one-of-a-kind boutiques; and many noteworthy eateries help shape the culture of New London.
As was true for many New England “river and rail” cities and towns, Waterbury’s 19th-century industrial development created a vibrant local economy, jobs and great wealth, leading to Waterbury’s position as the Brass Capital of the World and earning it the nickname Brass City. Today, efforts focus on protecting the small-town character and livability of its communities as residents plan neighborhood block parties, concerts and beautification projects.
