I love living in New London, Connecticut. It is a quaint city that is situated right on the water. It has typical New England small town charm with all of the benefits of living in a larger city. The downtown area is truly the heart of the community.
The restaurants and shops offer great quality food options. The seafood here is particularly great, especially Captain Scott's Lobster Dock. Throughout the city there are many places to relax and get to know new people. New London feels more like a tight knit community than most places of comparable size. This makes it a great place for those who are raising a family or who are looking for a place to set down roots. I can't think of any place I would rather live and raise my children.
The beach life is great here and adds to charm of the city. It is a lovely place to lay out and soak up some sun or take a refreshing dip. It is close to much of the city, making it easy to get to no matter what.
