Hi CT forum members!

We are starting to look at areas for relocating (from Westchester County NY) to CT and are interested in the Groton/Mystic area, specifically the area around Dogwood Lane/Curtis Street not too far from 184. Can anyone give me information about this particular neighborhood? We are retirees, so the school systems aren't a primary consideration, but low crime, access to amenities, & diversity are. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks!

Do you mean 95? Groton and Mystic aren't near 84....

Route 184 (exit 86 off I-95) is a local main road in Groton.

To the OP: Groton is a diverse area with many amenities, it's very Navy oriented as the sub base and Electric Boat are the main employment centers. Mystic is a lovely little town (part of Groton & Stonington), very tourist-oriented but I think it's adorable. It's very maritime and historic, with the Mystic Aquarium & Seaport being the main attractions.

Eastern CT has a slower pace than western CT/NY, but the Groton/New London area has a variety of shopping options and restaurants, plus access to the beaches, I-95 & I-395/Route 2 (i.e. the casinos).

I grew up not far from there in East Lyme and I am a huge fan of the area, it's great, and would have everything you are looking for.

That area is quite beautiful. It is probably the least dense part of Groton, but being so close to 184 gives you easy access to downtown Groton as well as merging directly on to I-95. Go a short distance east on 184 and you can take Allyn Street or route 27 directly into Mystic. As a whole the region is pretty diverse, there are lots of backgrounds and cultures that find home here.
The town offers lots of great activities to it's residents for exceptionaly low costs, and they also have many programs specifically for retirees. Southeastern Connecticut is a great place to live, I'm sure that you will be able to find something that you like here.

Good luck!
