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. Read Less
