If the mountains are not big enough, head north to the Berkshires or Vermont. You want city, we have them. If you want big city, drive to Boston or New York. My point is, where you live and what you do is up to you. There are hundreds of things to do here. You just need to stop complaining get off your a** and do them. Jay

PS - there is traffic in parts of the state but that is going to be true in or near any large metropolitain area.
+1000. boring comes from within a person. Ive been in Ct off and on my whole life, besides living in at least 4 different parts of NY, two cities in Fl and two different cities in Cali and many other places and also spending plenty of time traveling around 48 U.S. states. Theres plenty to do in Ct, for a non millionaire. Problem with "boring" is wherever YOU go there YOU are.

Well thats my opinion. In my opinion both of you are wrong except the part where if I want a big city, I have to go to NYC, or if I want mountains I go to Vermont.

CT is full of selfish snobs and high crime rates.

I dont count bars, restaurants, or clubs as things to do.

Long Island sound has some nasty polluted water, even in those "wealthier" towns like Madison and Guilford. One of those "wealthy" towns actually scored the highest pollution count. They dont even release the counts to the public because they are so far past whatever the "safe" limit is.

The only thing to do here is to go somewhere else. The mountains are better in Vermont, the beaches are better in Rhode Island, the city is better in New York/Boston. I guess thats my fault for desiring an actual beach with waves or an actual mountain that qualifies as a mountain.

If you want high crime, lots of unemployment, high property taxes, traffic, and completely selfish people then you gotta be here.

There are some good people here though, people are selfish in terms of the way they drive here, which is the worst Ive ever seen any where and Ive driven the cross continental western hemisphere and throughout the states.

Its just my opinion guys sorry, but its a discussion. Not everyone is going to sell this guy on CT.

you do realize Connecticut has one of the lower crime rates in the country? And, lower divorce rates, lower rates of teen pregnancy, etc than most other states as well.

And, good luck in moving to New York for the city and finding low property taxes. And, if you move to upstate New York, you're most likely going to be farther from NYC than you would be from just about anywhere in Connecticut. And, good luck finding those beaches in Vermont.

I agree. I think the poster would not be happy no matter where they lived. A change would be good for a while because it is different but once you live somewhere for a length of time you become jaded and some people become bored. I think they are someone who needs to leave the area to see how much Connecticut has to offer. Jay
