Connecticut Living – Beauty, Charm and History
Connecticut is so beautiful! Three of my best reasons to move there is that the state has 4 seasons, has so much charm and it’s outstanding natural beauty. Connecticut is bordered on the south by Long Island Sound, on the east by New York, on the north by Massachusetts, and on the east by Rhode Island. I’d love to start looking for houses for sale with Real Estate Experts. I would enjoy going outside and seeing the mountains, forests and the fantastic green countryside right at the doorstep.
Connecticut Living Four Seasons!
I wish Louisiana (where I live) had 4 season, we’re lucky if we get a Fall and Winter! You will find that Connecticut is one of the most beautiful locations in the world. The summers are warm and humid with plenty of sunshine. Spring is a rapidly warm up with plenty of rain to feed the green countryside. Spectacular fall colors of gold and brown and winters where snow can lay on the ground for up to ten weeks at a time. The weather in Connecticut is always a talking point among its residents.
You will experience versatile nature in just about every season. Connecticut boasts the different seasons and holidays with its decoration. You will find the streets decorated with flowers, American Flags, and pumpkins. In addition to the list of ‘things to do’ you can enjoy, just walking down the street with a cup of coffee in your hand is enough to absorb the beauty, history, and culture it has to offer. There are currently 18960 homes for sale. Some of these homes are “Hot Homes,” meaning they are likely to sell quickly.
