In the year 2000, I moved back to Newington, CT after living in another nearby town for more than a decade. Located in the central section of the state, Newington maintains a real small town charm, while also offering a wide variety of retail, dining and service options.
When it comes to amenities, living in Newington certainly has a lot to offer. The town center is a quaint area that is home to several nice restaurants, churches and retail stores. The Newington public school system is very good, and the local employment picture is healthy, especially in the service sector.
There are many apartment and condo options available in Newington, but the rent prices can be steep. The best areas in Newington include the Stoddard Avenue and Maple Hill Avenue neighborhoods.
A special highlight in Newington, CT is the section of state highway known as the Berlin Turnpike. On this unique road, you'll find a multitude of stores, restaurants, motels and family attractions.
