Compare Simsbury to Top 10 Best Places
A quintessential New England community of cherry trees and fenced-in farmland, Simsbury has successfully retained its old-fashioned appeal despite ongoing development. Since 1670, residents have found peace among the stately Pinchot sycamores and along the Farmington River.
Though it is just 20 minutes northwest of Hartford, Simsbury has its own airport.
The town also has four state parks with mountaintop vistas, plus the International Skating Center of Connecticut, where residents can do double axels in the same world-class facility that has hosted the likes of 2006 Olympic silver medalist Sasha Cohen. --D.G.
