In the 18th and 19th centuries, this Connecticut River town was famous for its brownstone quarries, which supplied the building materials for a good chunk of Boston and New York City. Today itís known for its good schools, reasonable taxes, and peaceful scenery. Many residents work in nearby Glastonbury or Middletown or in Hartford, 18 miles away. One big attraction: the Brownstone Exploration and Discovery Park, which draws residents and out-of-towners with zip lining, water skiing, and snorkeling. --N.D.Subscribe to Money Magazine
