Cheshire: Still One of the Best Places to Live
Cheshire: The Plant Bedding Capital of Connecticut, home of the Lights of Hope Festival, and a great place to live. With its colonial charm, scenic landscapes, affordable living options and conveniently located near both Boston and New York City, Cheshire is not only loved by Sally Bowman Real Estate and “Cheshirites” but has also been nationally recognized.
In 2009, Cheshire was named #72 on CNN Money Magazine’s Top 100 Places to live. In 2011, Cheshire was ranked #73 by the same publication. Today, the lovely town of Cheshire that we all know and love has been ranked #5 on Connecticut Magazine’s “Rating the Towns 2011: 25,000 – 50,000.”
With nearly 30,000 residents, Cheshire holds its title with its impressive education statistics, old fashioned values and traditions, and an undying dedication to supporting the community. While the facts and figures may hold true, it is the feeling you get when you enter the town that keeps it desirable among current Cheshire residents and those looking to relocate. While Cheshire maintains a small town, New England vibe, it is also a thriving suburban community, which are two things that many of today’s home buyers long for.
If you currently live in Cheshire, you are well aware of the town’s dedication to giving back and supporting the community’s every effort to offer a helping hand. As mentioned, Cheshire is home to the Lights of Hope Festival, which has become an annual and signature event. The Lights of Hope event is scheduled for Saturday, November 12, and is celebrated to bring together town residents and volunteers, to celebrate hope, remember loss and support the many causes important to the Cheshire community.
The stats are in. But don’t just take their word for it. Visit Cheshire for yourself and find out what this hidden treasure of a town has to offer. You won’t be disappointed. For those who live in Cheshire, or are fond of the town, give yourself a pat on the back. It is truly rewarding to live in a place that is valued so highly for its achievements, charm, and of course, good natured residents.
Here’s to Cheshire! Hip-hip, hooray!
