Save the Whale!

Technically, the casino's are very connected to Hartford. About 30 minutes from S Glastonbury.

I agree with Kidyankee's post and not just because I live in the Hartford area. My family trail starts in NYC and went up to Waterbury growing up so I'm not even from the Hartford area. Now that I'm here, I enjoy it. I also like East of New Haven and the lower CT River Valley too.

I understand your view!! I guess getting a chance to grow up in Myrtle Beach,SC showed me things i enjoyed as a individual and that was clean crisp air from the ocean!! Not just that but you got Universities in that area, Coast Guard Academy, Airport in Groton, Navy Base downtown New London is beautiful, the Clinton/westbrook outlets, jobs, Rhode Island border, Norwich, Concerts, aquariums everything!!! That's why i pick that area as the best in the state!!!

It's saltwater, yes, but on the sound - not the ocean.

Maybe a better question would be "what doesn't it have?"

I would tell someone from out of state how Central CT has everything one might need. (I'm from Plainville, so this is where I'm coming from.) The airport is 30 mins away, Hartford is 15 mins, the beach is 45 mins, plenty of shopping EVERYWHERE ( Berlin Tpk, Westfarms, Queen St Southington, Farmington Ave Bristol, New Britain Ave Plainville, West Hartford Center, Meriden Mall, Brass Mill Ctr, Rt 44 in Avon, Shoppes @ Farmington Valley in Canton, I could keep going..) Lake Compounce, Farmington Canal Greenway...

There's diversity...safe mix of rich and not so rich (W Hartford, Avon, Farmington, Plainville, Bristol, New Britain) within close proximity. Plenty of businesses...safe, smart growth. Great healthcare (UConn Med Ctr, St Francis, Hartford Hosp, Hospital of Central CT (NB and Southington), Bristol Hospital). Many colleges (Trinity, UConn, UHart, CCSU, Tunxis CC, Wesleyan, etc).

I could keep going on and on and on. Where else in our state could someone say so much..and I'm leaving out a lot!

Now lets hear all the Debbie Downers chime in...

The question is about New London, not central Connecticut. Please stick to the topic of the OP. Thank you, JayCT, Moderator
