New London is located where the broad Thames River empties into the Long Island Sound. Norwich lies about 13 miles upriver. New London has a rich maritime history and is now home to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Norwich is an early industrial center, where the first paper and iron nails were made in the mid-1700’s.

Norwich has some local arts amenities but is also transforming itself into a regional weekend tourist destination, with large casinos, upscale hotels and spas. The central location to New England and New York just might make this work. Air and many other services are available in Providence, 60 miles northeast. Employment projections have declined. Cost of living, while high, is moderate on a Connecticut scale.

Level terrain with marshes and beach at the coast give way to rolling and wooded terrain to the north. Hills around Norwich rise 500 feet.
