Ready for a Change? Here are some Reasons to Consider Moving to CT!


From green farmlands and small towns dotted with white-steeple churches to high-rise urban buildings, Connecticut has lots to offer everyone. Perhaps you’d thought about moving to CT but weren’t quite sure if it was the right choice-if so, we’ve got a few things for you to carefully consider.


Connecticut is located close enough to New York City that hopping a train or bus to the Big Apple for a day trip is easy enough to do. In fact, Connecticut is bordered by Long Island Sound to the south, and three of this state’s eight counties are considered a part of the New York City combined statistical area. The fact that taxes are much lower in Connecticut than they are in New York inspires many to commute there for employment on a daily basis.

Since Connecticut is the third-smallest state in our union, getting from one side of her to another is very easy to do. This means that no matter where you are, you’ll find the beach to be only a short drive away. Connecticut has over 332 miles of coastland, 82 miles of which are protected areas. In addition, the Connecticut River virtually dissects the state in two, and offers ample opportunities for fishing, boating and water sports.

History and Culture

Connecticut has 61 places that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A few of them include several historic houses, the old statehouse in Hartford, an Underground Railroad station, and an entire district in New Haven. There are also 20 different lighthouses located along Long Island Sound, numerous covered bridges, and several state parks that also have historical significance.

If you’re into studying early American history, you’ll find a wealth of information available here in the Constitution State. The University of Connecticut, Rocky Hill Historical Society and the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History all provide resources for those wishing to learn about Puritan culture and the events that led to the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Nationally Recognized

CNN Magazine has previously recognized five Connecticut cities on their “top 100 places to live in America” list. Those cities are Bristol, West Hartford, Stamford, Hamden and Norwalk. In choosing cities for the list, things such as income, job opportunities, school quality, safety, health care and arts and leisure were all taken into consideration. Several of these cities also have low crimes rates as well.

In all, moving to the Constitution State makes good sense for a lot of reasons. If you’re ready to make the move, contact us for help in finding your dream home.
