Let us look at these towns in 10 years. Remember Danbury was voted #1 place to live in America? Look at it now! Get out while you can.

And go where, this is a town of 15,300, good schools and very little crime. In my lifetime the Hat City has always been a little tough and a lot bigger than Tolland. If I got out I think I would head South, maybe sooner than later.

It's not their turn this year, it's Tolland's turn, next year it will be another town. Of course in the past 10 years Tolland has made the list 3 times.

Bolton, CT. is my # 1. Typical rural New England town with the town Green, beautiful vistas, a real sense of community and the usual highly charged Town meetings that make Connecticut Yankees a special breed. Haven't lived there for forty years, but still go back to visit whenever we head east. It's a little more developed now but still has that peaceful, serene atmosphere that soothes your soul.

Tolland is a nice town, that's it. But certainly not worthy of being ranked 27th in the country! I live in CT and have worked in Tolland 8 years or so. Come on... there's a highway running directly through it (Route 95); the town center is really nothing (no shops, no culture what-so-ever, etc. etc.) There's not even one good restaurant (unless you count Tolland Pizza LOL). Sorry, but Tolland is lucky if it is 27 best in CT alone. I guess it is good that the other towns that are much better aren't ranked (let's keep the secret safe).

Bob, I don't know what Tolland you are referring to but there is no Route 95 in this town, Route 195 starts on the SE side of I-84 and rusn over to UCONN and Willi. If you were a little more observant you would have visited Monet's Table on RT 74 in Tolland or maybe Papa T's Pizza Shop. As far as the center of town is concerned you have Tolland Green, we fight hard to keep out business from our town center. We are quite happy with Tolland just the way it is. I notice your ISP is Suffield, if you live there what great cultural events do you have there except being the road to Six Flags.

I agree Tolland is nice, but it's got a major interstate running through and too many little strip malls thrown about. You can see how sprawl from the nearby university has pushed into the once more rural town of Tolland. I would agree that Bolton is nicer and looks like Tolland from 20 years ago. I also think there are better towns out there - especially in the Northwest Hills - like Roxbury, Bethlehem, Woodbury, Goshen, and Litchfield, just to name a few.

The towns you mention in the North West hills are really beautiful, I went to Old Roxbury Days once and the town really impressed me, it is truly an unspoiled area.
