Climate of Conncticut: - 8/5/2016
Lived in New Haven on the Connecticut coast (Long Island Sound) for 5 years in College. Summers are hot and often humid, but I like the beach and warm weather so I loved it. Springs and falls were nice and often sunny (much better than WI were I come from). Winters were moderately cold with snow on a few occasions, but not winter is not long and very cold snowy like the far northern states and upper Read More

Connecticut - 1/30/2016
Connecticut offers a good diversity of cultures, religion,heritage and employment opportunities. We have a variety of geography ranging from the shorelines of Long Island Sound to scenic mountain ranges, and an established highway system crisscrossing the state allowing easy access to seaside restaurants, vineyards, orchards and ski slopes and all business and vistas in Read More

Cost of living in CT - 12/6/2015
In the state of CT not only do we pay state income tax, but we have very high property tax. For a home about valued $200,000 we pay over $5000 annually. In addition we pay property tax on our cars, motorcycles, and boats. Then we have the sales tax of 6.35%.

Painful. The pay is more here becuase of the cost of living, but so are every other cost. Food, clothes, cars, houses, etc... Read More

Farmington/Hartford Connecticut (New England in general); Kalamazoo/Grand Rapids, Michigan (MI in general) (M), and Walnut Creek/Bay Area California (CA in general, which doesn't really exist there). Assuming an income of around 200,000. E, barely haning in there. Housing in desirable areas with top school systems, you will need more with kids factoring in sports and recreation singce nothing is free, it's all clubs, like the cadillac days of the 60s and 70s. M is manageable for a more modest decent education. There is a lot more that s free, like lakes and beaches and other recreation. Both Kalamazoo and Farmington share the inbetween two great and divergent cities, Chicago and Detroit and NYC and Boston, respectively. So access to culture and entertainment is the same better or worse depending on your cultural preferences, but cheaperin the M to be sure since CT, NYC, and Boston boast the highest COL anywhere in the country. To be sure you can afford anything anywhere at great Read More

Worst State On Almost Every List - 12/13/2014
I grew up in CT; it is a very beautiful state with miles of coastline. There are extremely poor, crime-ridden cities (Bridgeport, Norwalk) but there are also extremely expensive safe cities. Farmington is one of the latter; although parts of it are dominated by woods, the Farmington River, farms, etc., it is right next to Avon and Simsbury, two extremely expensive suburbs of Hartford. CT is a one-party state with an abnormally large number of federal, state and municipal workers, all of whom have pension/health plans that they and and their unions guard jealously. CT is the bluest of blue states with a high income tax, high sales tax, high property tax, and punishing taxes on small business and the creation of small businesses. Bonuses are given to big, extremely successful companies for staying in the state. I've been priced out of my home state because my income hasn't changed in 10 years while the value of my house has gone down, the taxes on it have gone up, utilities and food Read More

My favorite thing about CT is definitely how true the climate is to each season: you get the most beautiful autumns, the freshest springs, as well as the harshest winters, however that is what makes CT one of the best places to live. Read More
