Sounds like you haven't been to CT.

The breathtaking Litchfield Hills
Eastern CT shore (Fenwick, Madison, Clinton, etc).
Thimble Islands
Leafy Fairfield County
Corporate center of Hartford and top rated suburbs
Gothic New Haven and Yale
Four branches of commuter rail that serves more than half of the states population into midtown Manhattan (Metro North's New Haven Line, New Canaan Line, Danbury Line, Waterbury Line)
The antique "quiet corner" just one hour from Boston
Oh yes, the Merritt Parkway.
Easy access to six airports

The above list covers all regions of CT.

You will not find cookie cutter suburbs in either state. Check out the "CT photos" thread in the CT section - we are not just that mcmansion suburban state that many think we are.

The Merritt Parkway is awesome. I was driving through there a few weeks ago on my way to New Jersey. It's one of the most beautiful roads to drive on in the country.

Massachusetts and Connecticut are very similar states. Wealthy, old money, classy, "snobbish", homes to fantastic institutions of higher learning. Both are pretty cool in my opinion.

I agree, it is really beautiful especially during the fall. Driving along it on a Sunday afternoon, one would never know it is a major commuter route into NYC. Traffic during rush hour is pretty bad so I hope you were moving.

Yes, they all sound super, but do the rest of the world know of any of this? (you're probably glad they don't, lol)
