      Living in Windsor Locks today is largely like living there 10 or 20 years ago, and that's a good thing. This small town is well-maintained and provides excellent public services. Connecticut's largest airport, Bradley International, is located in Windsor Locks, and employment opportunities are often available at the many airport-related businesses situated nearby.

      An excellent public school system and public library are in place in Windsor Locks, and more than a dozen public parks are located there. Retail options here are limited, but an abundance of retail stores are located in adjacent towns. Route 75 is a major local thoroughfare that features lots of good restaurants.
