Hi all! I have been looking to move back east for awhile now - I still haven't been able to! I want to be reasonably close to Boston (less 3 hours maybe?) but now know that I could never afford it there! ;D

So I am looking at Connecticut mainly, due to homeschool laws which limit me to Connecticut, Delaware, or New Jersey pretty much. We have 3 kids, (5, 4, and 1 in my tummy)

The things I am looking for is

1. safety
2. 4 roughly equal seasons, including a hot summer, mild rainy spring and a snowy winter - but most importantly, I would LOVE to see some seriously red, orange, and yellow foliage during a proper fall!!
4. a LOT of sunny days throughout all seasons! I despise cloudy/foggy/overcast conditions!
5. Away from the coast - don't really enjoy beaches and oceans that much - when I get an itch to be near one I'd prefer to drive to it
6. houses with good lot size or acres available for under 250k-300k.
7. many wide open, grassy spaces and rec areas or rivers/lakes would be a lovely bonus! Maybe some farms and orchards around that are open to the public?

Any ideas around these areas?
Thanks guys!!!
