To the OP: I was up in the Hartford area this summer for a temporary assignment/training program and lived on the Vernon/Manchester line as well as did some work in Rocky Hill and I can "second" exactly what the last 2 posts said. If you have kids, you may find schools in Manchester a bit questionable, but I'd hardly call them "inner city Hartford" schools either. Good luck, it's a really nice area and while pretty expensive compared to where you're from, not as bad as say the NYC and Boston areas 100 or so miles away.

Also how is the place in general in terms of cost of living & safety..
My daughter lives in Windsor and its 1150.00 for a 2 bedroom with heat, no elec. While its not Glastonbury its a nice town and central to everything.
