I've been a little homesick for Connecticut; it's come and gone over the years. There is a town I really have my eye on now that I have a family, which is Fairfield. It's a suburb-ish type town with good schools, close to the shore, and it's between two big cities (big to CT anyway), New Haven and Stamford. Plus you can get on the train and get to NYC in an hour and a half. I like the idea of living there, plus my extended family is there and some old friends. Housing is also reasonably affordable; much less than what you'd get in most of CA, and there's no state income tax, but property taxes can be pretty hight. What would be holding me back predominately is that it's pretty hard to walk away from the weather in California, and honestly I really like a lot of the people in CA. Connecticut folks are good too but there's something about the SoCal folks that really vibes with me. The way I see it is I've got 3 years to figure it out because that's when my son starts school. I like the expression "more will be revealed".

Having pass through and worked in this state, it seems pleasant enough. Though it is expensive it does have a few nice landscapes and towns. Manchester and East Hartford are especially places I recommend visiting.

I've only been there a few times,and while I did not think "this is where I want to live",I didn't dislike it,either.I'd have to see more and know more about the jobs,people & politics to form more of an opinion.

No thanks. I lived there for one summer, and that was enough. Too crowded, too expensive, to fast paced. Also some rather strange alcohol laws.

Not a chance. I will not subject myself to such snooty NY-New England elitism. No way!

It's alright. Nice beaches and historic sights. But it has ridiculous traffic, Can be very crowded, and most of the people are snobs.
