I really feel like if you ask anyone in Connecticut how they feel about living here nobody is ever overly ecstatic about it. All anyone ever has to say is "It's too cold" or "there's nothing to do". However, my friends, you are so wrong.
Where else can you live that has 4 beautiful seasons? And I mean real seasons.
Fall is almost everyone's favorite part of being here. Seeing the leaves change, going to corn mazes, pumpkin picking, haunted houses, and fairs. Winter gives us the white Christmas' people in other states only dream of. Spring gives us blooming flowers. Summer is hot but that's okay because the beach is an hour or less away anywhere you are.
You can even go to Rhode Island to Watch Hill or just spend the day in Newport. Feeling a day in the city? Boston and New York are 2 hours away depending on where you are. You can have your city days then go home to your white picket fences. There are incredible hiking trails and parks. You can go skiing, snowboarding, tubing, or just build snowmen if you're unathletic like me.
We're known for having great schools and great pizza (I mean really what else could you ask for?). History buff? Connecticut dates back to the beginning of our country so the stories are endless.
Anytime you ask people in Connecticut if they plan on leaving a majority of them will tell you yes.
However, in case you haven't noticed, they never do or they all come back. Maybe they just didn't realize how good we have it here in Connecticut. That's probably why so many celebrities live here too, likely because of its convenience also. There's really something for everyone here. So if you do ever decide to venture away from Connecticut, or near it, remember all it stands for.
