While the counties that surround it might get a lot of attention, Connecticut’s Middlesex County is worth considering if you’re looking for a place to settle down that’s still right in the middle of everything you want in your daily life. Surrounded by Hartford, New London, and New Haven counties, and with New York’s Suffolk County just to the south, Middlesex is in a prime location for NYC commuters who want to spread out amongst the farmland.
Farms dot the county but there’s also a bustling business community here, plenty of exciting attractions to visit, strong healthcare, and beautiful scenery to tie it all together. Many of the towns found here feature vibrant downtown sectors full of restaurants, shops, and bars. The Connecticut River is a perfect spot to get outdoors. And with three major highways running through the county, it’s easy to get where you need to be.
