My husband and I are relocating to Southern CT from Richmond, VA. He will be working in Trumbull and I will be going to school in either Fairfield or New Haven. We are intrested in buying a small place. Where is an affordable place to live that is child friendly?

Yeah, it all depends on your definition of affordable. If affordable to you means a $200K single family home then you are out of luck. There are many nice child friendly towns around, depending on how quiet you want the place to be. There is Trumbull, Stratford, Milford, Orange, Fairfield, (parts of) West Haven, Shelton..all fine for commutes between Trumbull, Fairfield or New Haven.

Milford might be your best option. It is between New Haven and Fairfield and has easy access to Trumbull. Homes there will be more affordable than in Fairfield County. Milford has good schools , excellent shopping and restaurants, great beaches and parks and a wide range of housing options. Good luck, Jay

I'd add Monroe to that list... homes are pricier than Milford, but the schools come very highly recommended.
