      East Haven: Family Fun by the Shore

      I absolutely love living in East Haven! I live in a condo in the section of Momauguin in East Haven, which is remotely close to the shore. The other sections of East Haven include the Foxon area, which is more hilly, and the center, where all the administrative buildings are located. I have two children and they love living here, not mention that the schools in the area are quite reputable.

      Although the winters can get a little cold, the summers are definitely worth it. It's not as hot here compared to other parts of Connecticut because we're close to the shore and get a breeze. It's a treat to live close to the beach during the summer, it saves money on beach vacations! Then, once fall is over we have a beautiful and exciting fall festival.

      There isn't much nightlife in the town and it isn't fast pace. However, East Haven is the perfect place to raise a family. I love living here.
