Culture / Recreation

Connecticut’s northeast corner offers all the advantages of living in the serenity of small town or rural settings with easy access to the advantages of several large cities. Boston, Providence, Hartford, Worcester, Springfield, New London and Norwich are all within easy driving distance.

Those who love old things will find historical sites and antique shops around every corner. Fairs, art/craft shows, and concerts vie for attention each weekend. Golf, cycling and sky diving are available locally. Break-A-Leg Productions, Three C’s, Opera New England and Theatre of Northeastern Connecticut offer a menagerie of stage productions throughout the year.

Town Recreation Commissions have well developed sports programs and theatrical productions for children and adults. The region gives you the option of being involved in a whirlwind of exciting activities or retreating peacefully into seclusion.
