Moving to CT? Top 10 Reasons Why That’s a Great Idea!

So you’re moving to CT?  Moving isn’t always an easy choice, but joining the ranks of Connecticuters is a move you won’t regret.

Here are the top 10 reasons you will love living in CT.

10. Even the dinosaurs preferred Connecticut. A visit to Dinosaur State Park and Arboretum is a visit to one of the largest dinosaur track sites in North America. Travel back 200 million years to the time of the dinosaur!

9. Not quite as old as the dinosaurs, Connecticut is also home to the country’s oldest continually operating amusement park. Opened in 1846, Lake Compounce is now home to the world’s top rated wooden roller coaster, Boulder Dash, as well as Crocodile Cove Water Park.

8. With 618 miles of shoreline, Connecticut proudly serves up some of the nation’s best seafood.

7. Not in the mood for seafood? New York and Chicago have nothing on New Haven style “apizza”. With a very thin crust, baked in a coal-fired oven, this pizza is not to be missed.

6. It’s not all about the food, but even our nation’s iconic hamburger has roots in New Haven. In 1900, a man entered the restaurant Louis’ Lunch. in need of something more portable to eat. What he received is considered to be the ancestor of the great American burger known today.

5. With all the great dining options, you’re sure to need something to wash it all down. Connecticut also boasts a booming microbrew community. Popular options such as Half-Full Brewery, City Steam Brewery and Rheingold Brewing Company are just a few of the choices.

4. UConn’s Huskies are a college basketball team to be proud of. The Huskies have a strong history in both men’s and women’s basketball, so it’s no surprise that the residents of CT are a very loyal fan base.

3. Mystic Seaport: The Museum of America and The Sea, located in Mystic, CT, is the largest maritime museum in the world. Offering visitors a link to the seafaring past, Mystic Seaport is a hands-on historical experience with something for everyone.

2. As the 2nd school to join the Ivy League, Yale University in New Haven is an incredible school. Ivy covered buildings and neo-gothic architecture also make it a beautiful place to visit.

1. Originally settled in 1614, it’s no surprise that Connecticut has a rich and vibrant history. The first medical diploma in the US was given by Yale University. New London, Connecticut launched the first nuclear submarine. The first revolver was produced in CT, and the first public art museum was opened in CT. There are many more “firsts” that took place in Connecticut, so now that you are moving, you’ll have to find out more for yourself.
