Wallingford Center Is Great 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 16, 2018) Taking time off from work to enjoy where you live is a must, and this fact is definitely true living in Wallingford Center. No matter your background, demographic, or lifestyle choice, you will find a great place where you fit in and can enjoy your life. I will say it is a bit ex ...Read More pensive to live here, however.

I know that many people use public transportation and the busline is fantastic along South Main and all the way through the area around HWY 5. Safe, beautiful weather, plenty to do, what are you waiting for. I would book that ticket tomorrow to come here and see it for myself if I were you! Read Less
