Why Connecticut Is THE Place to Live
Yo-ho, yo-ho, a CT life for me! Connecticut: the nutmeg state, the constitution state, the place I call home! In this series I’m going to show you why Connecticut is THE place to live. Do you like color tv? How about helicopters? If so, you’ve got the state of Connecticut to thank for those inventions. Alongside those, it is also the birthplace of nuclear submarines and speed limits. 1901 was when the first speed limit was put into place at a whopping 12 miles per hour!
Another claim to fame Connecticut has Louis Lunch in New Haven. Family owned and operated, they are currently one of the oldest, family-run businesses in the country. They are also the birthplace of the hamburger sandwich. They are so committed to serving a classic hamburger that they will refuse to serve it with ketchup, only cheese, onion, and tomato as garnishes. The burger itself is cooked inside a steamer, not a grill, to give it more taste.
Aside from all the delicious food Connecticut has to offer, they also have plenty of outdoor activities to keep you happy and on the move. The most popular being the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail which is 80 miles long. Whether you are a runner, walker, roller blader, skateboarder, or bike, this trail is perfect for you and anyone else with an active lifestyle.
Last, but certainly not least, is the iconic Yale University. This 6% acceptance rate university has 5 presidential alumni and other political leaders such as Hilary Clinton. With 169 cities, Connecticut has a huge variation in house prices. The cheapest area being Waterbury where houses average at $122,000 and the most expensive being in Greenwich, with their houses average $1.35 million.
