LIVE IN CONNECTICUT

No better place to work, play and raise a family.

A great place to build a career as well as a family.

Life in Connecticut offers a dynamic blend of the active and relaxing, the natural and cultural, the historical and innovative. Here you'll also find a mix of city and country living options, nationally ranked public schools and globally renowned private schools, access to great health care and excited job opportunities. It's this complementary balance that makes Connecticut such an ideal place to make a great living — while also creating a rewarding life.

Quality of Life

Connecticut is the kind of place where people want to work — because it's the kind of place they love to live. Connecticut's quality of life consistently ranks among the top states in the country, thanks to our highly ranked schools, our low crime rates, our healthy population and so much more.

101 state parks and
pristine lakes and ponds of all sizes,
perfect for fishing, hiking and exploring.

Affordable Cost of Living

An exceptional quality of life simply costs less in Connecticut compared to nearby cities like Boston and New York. Commutes are among the shortest in the northeast, and with recent investment in housing infrastructure, you will find more housing for your money.

65% lower housing costs
than Manhattan, and 11-42% lower
cost of living than Boston or NYC.

Quality Education

From K-12 through college and graduate schools, education is a priority for Connecticut residents and businesses alike. We have a legacy of excellent public schools and offer a wide array of top private school choices, as well as 40 highly regarded colleges and universities.

#1 in the U.S. for college 
readiness, and #4 for top
high schools in the nation.

Cultural Values

We are committed to supporting arts and culture through venues, services and programs all over the state. In addition, Connecticut has always been open and welcoming to all communities, including the LGBTQ communities, as we were the 2nd state in the nation to legalize same-sex marriage.

18 world-class museums
and home to 5 Tony Award-winning
regional producing theaters.

Access to Transportation

At the hub of the northeast corridor, Connecticut offers a robust network of major highways, commuter rail, Amtrak and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes. And Hartford’s Bradley International Airport is just a flight away from anywhere in the U.S., and Canadian, Caribbean and European destinations.
