Is New Milford a good town for young families? Are the schools good? Is it mostly rural or is there a small downtown? Who would you recommend it for?

Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes.

Keep in mind "CT Rural" is not like Southeast Rural. You're always 15 minutes from some city even if it feels like you are in the woods. It's a thing of beauty IMO.

How about who I would not recommend it for. I would not reccomend it for the hipster crowd who needs to part of the latest whatever and can't live 15 minutes without a mochachino or a wifi hotspot.

New Milford is a nice town with a small charming downtown area and most major shopping needs along Route 7. For major shopping you could go to Danbury which is about 20 minutes away. As for schools, they generally perform above the state averages on Connecticut Mastery and Connecticut Academic Performance Tests so I would say that they are very good. You can find information on the schools there at the links below. Jay

New Milford is geographically the largest town in the state. There is some suburban style shopping found along Danbury Road (Rt 7), a charming downtown and a few small businesses found along Route 202. Homes are more affordable than the most towns around Danbury due to the further assistance to New York. The recent opening of the bypass has had a postive impact on real estate sales.
